mapping (FerntreeCk) 2:15:00  *** 6.5 km (20:46 / km)
mostly good, but a few frustrating areas where the connections between the sections of creek reserve are not good - either too much thick bush or the adjacent landowners think they can extend their gardens into the reserve and then lay claim for exclusive use.
mapping (Botanic Garden) 30:00  ** 1.7 km (17:39 / km)
detail of sensory garden - very detailed but may be difficult to use at map scale.
drive home OK except for cowboy B-Double driver who seemed to think that 1 car length separation was good enough at 100km/hr - couldn't see the top of his radiator in the rear vision mirror!
I really wanted to see him pulled up by one of the many highway patrol cars out for the start of the school holidays, but no such luck. His aggressive driving continued after he passed me, but overall he gained about 30 seconds aver 150 km, before he pulled off the road.
