Now would that be Mt Walker in QLD? If so, that may be the multi cache Bush-Bush GZ or Cunningham's View perhaps.

This is my profile. geomatica

The Mt Walker I'm speaking of is right near Lake Lyell on the Western side of Lithgow. If you're a fan of 4WD Action magazine you will have the DVD that came out with a recent issue showing Roothie on a trip with a few guys there and then the following one showed him towing a camper trailer around where I led the guys through in January. Top 4WDing all around there!

Cool. Lots of nice caches up that way.

Yeah I subscribe to 4WD Action. I recall that DVD segment. 4 vehicles in total with, all terrain camper trailers and the guys that runs them, I think.

Yep, that's the one. All-Terrain Campers it was. What they did is exactly the stuff we could and should do with our Subies. I know the water crossing they did and the "three sisters" hill climb they didn't climb without winching and snatching each other up... we came down the easy one on the Lidsdale trip (right where Mr Turbo's Forester had to stop to cool down after he'd bumped the fan kill switch). No-one reports I've read really tell that they can get UP the third track (comp-vehicle stuff if at all), the 2nd track is possible with BIG cars and the 1st track is fine for some Subes and bigger cars with good drivers.

Anyway, I've looked on the Geocaching sites and, yes, there are a few up that way but only one that I saw right on the peak of Mt Walker. I'd like to check out what other ones are nearby on the tracks.

For those of us (like me, for example ... ) who haven't got a clue what this is, there is a helpful article here:

It's serious hide and seek (or is that geek).

You hide it and 100's seek it.

Sort of silly really.

^ Each to their own, Pigs .

Far be it from me to tell anyone what they should like, or not like - specially if it doesn't hurt anyone else.

God only knows, humans do plenty of stuff that hurts other humans. This activity seems to be extremely benign . That's a big plus IMNSHO.

Not silly to me, but then I'm an occasional cacher.

It was something to do once you get out into the wild. There's not a lot of fishing and such around here. I've lived in the area for a very long time and already explored most of the accessible roads several times over, so this was an opportunity to take a look from a different perspective, sort of LOL

When I go on vacation out of state, I'll look for Virtuals or Earthcaches in the area. Sometimes that will help you to find scenic, interesting, or "secret" locations that you might not find otherwise.
