    At the corner the only thing I noticed different was the Dog fence was much cleaner this time.

    On a more personal not I notice I have more wrinkles and less hair, but am still wearing an Akubra, Khaki Shorts and Redback Hiking boots

    Why would I buy something for $10 when I can make it for $20

    We were a few days later on the Easter Monday, we only left home at lunchtime on the 30th.

    I first went there in '99, was there about two years ago. The only thing that had changed was the size of the bar at the Corner store!
    On days like this I'd rather be west of the Darling!

    Hi Andrew,
    Sorry to annoy you but there are 9 recognised corners in Australia.
    Two at Surveyor Generals Corner
    Poeppel Corner
    Haddon Corner
    Cameron Corner
    Gregory-Greaves Corner
    Three at McCabe Corner area.
    We will be going to McCabe in a couple of weeks with a small group, the group will then have been to all 9.
    Going to be pretty cool.
    Cheers Roadie

    I guess it all depends on how you count them, yes there are 2 corners at Surveyors General Corner, and 2 posts, but there is only one place name. ie Surveyor Generals Corner.

    As for McCabe Corner, unlike SGC there is only one post, and again only one McCabe corner although you could count it as multiple corners if that's the way you would like to count them.

    Given your method of counting Roadie, I make it 10 Corners...... in fact you could argue 11 corners.

    Cheers Andrew

    Welcome back, AJ! ;-)

    We got to tick off our second corner in July:



    Only 5, 6, 7 or even 8 () to go!

    On the topic of OCD, we also started our "centres of Australia" mission:

    Lamberts Gravitational Centre



    and the kindly people at Mt Cavenagh Station let me onto the property to visit the Johnston Geodetic Centre:



    Only 3 to go there, but I'm sure somebody will correct me with some new ones....

    Cheers
    Spike
    So much to see, so little time.......
