Berridale Trip - Day 9 to Day 11

Day 9 to 11 – 21/4/2017 to 23/4/2017 – Gilgandra, Goondwindi, Home

It was a slow start to the morning. I think we were trying to deny the inevitable of starting to head for home. As we were leaving town we went for a drive through the main street of Tumut.

Day 8 – 20/4/2017 Tumut Rest Day

It was nice to have a day just sitting around camp and nothing planned. You couldn’t have ordered better weather. Here are a few photos from around camp.

Berridale Trip - Day 7

Day 7 – 19/4/2017 – Berridale to Tumut

Unfortunately, it was the day that we had to leave to start heading home . But before we did head off I had one last fly around with the drone . I was initially going to fly over to the large rock that stood out on top of the nearby ridge. I was still only new to flying the drone and getting use to controlling it. I made it to about 470m away from me and chickened out. It was still a long way over to the rock and because we were leaving this morning I couldn’t really afford to have it run out of battery and land so far away and then have to go searching for it. It will have to wait until another visit when I have a lot more experience. I am sure the rock is not going anywhere any time soon.

Very hard to see but the large rock is centre of the photo on the horizon
I later worked out that I was still about 1.75km from getting to the rock. So I will definitely have to make sure that the battery is fully charged on the next attempt!
