Unsuccessful hashes

  1. 2009-05-30 -37 145 - a house next to a park in suburbia, by car, solo. Private property. 2/10

  3. 2009-09-19 -37 145 - failed due to unexpected water. Solo bike quest through forbidden water catchment in Yarra Ranges, eventually descending steep gully and turning back due to existential crisis, inadequate lighting and waterfall within a couple of hundred metres of the point. 9/10
  4. 2012-06-01 -36 146 - in a paddock near Winton, northern Victoria. It turns out I have a morbid fear of cows.
  5. 2018-12-30 -36 147 - deep in the bush near Mt Hotham. Tried three different ways to get there, foiled at every turn.
  6. 2020-05-03 -37 144 - in someone's front garden, in Melbourne. Unsuccessful? Meh, I'd call it.
  7. 2020-06-21 -37 145 - rode halfway to Kangaroo Ground. Forgot to bring snacks. It was getting late. Sooooo hungry.
