Then on the 27th, I did 38 geocaches in one day - 26 of which were on the APM challenge route - one cache representing each Prime Minister Australia has had so far. I found all of them and another dozen extras. The photo below was taken near one of the side trips - I couldn't get further back to take a wider photo, the banks were steep and a bit treacherous-looking. Not many creeks have water in them at this time of year. There were other nice and unusual things to see along the way - I saw a lot of cellar beetles (harmless, sometimes kept as pets (not by me, thanks)) and thistles that had grown improbably large. I had no idea they got that big. I also learnt a lot about driving on dirt roads with loose surfaces - particularly about acceleration and steering. Fear not, no disasters. Just a few interesting learning experiences. The roads were very quiet - most people stick to the sealed roads. I was exhausted at the end of the day but it was quite an adventure!
