First "incident" while mapping

Posted by Neil Penman on 16 March 2009 in English (English)

Saturday February 21st, I blew a tire on a forest track between Gisborne and Tylden. $270 to replace the front two tires, although both were quite worn so it was probably a good thing.

My spare tire on the Avensis though is only a temporary one so I was restricted to 80km/hour for the rest of the trip.

Location: Woodend, Shire of Macedon Ranges, Loddon Mallee, Victoria, Australia

Well I had a puncture last time I was out mapping too. About £4.50 for a new innertube. But then I am restricted to about 20km/hour, as that's as fast as my legs will propel me. So all depends on your perspective really.

You have done some impressive mapping Dave. My perspective is that I also prefer to map on a bicycle too. Generally when going to Maldon I take the train to Castlemaine and cycle from there. This time I needed the car. I mapped the road from bright to falls creek on my bike. 130km with a fair bit of climbing. The road down from falls was good though about 30km almost continuous down hill at between 50 and 60 kph.
