The Two Ranges rogaine – SA 2008

Posted on 20 Jul 2008 | 0 comments

Another rogaine in the Flinders Ranges. This time it is not as far to drive as it is further south in the Flinders. The actual ranges on the map are the Bendelby and Hungry Ranges and the hash house is located south west of them which means we also have a large flat (ish) area with controls. We first dismiss the flat area, but after checking a few routes we realise the flat area is pretty good for points too and will be a lot faster. Jonno joins us for the rogaine, but arrives later and has to leave earlier. We do a bit of sightseeing on the way back to Adelaide, go for a walk and check out the (optical illusion) of Magnetic Hill – pretty cool!
