Uncle JiM:
I spelt it wrong on the maps

Maybe it's Wheeeela Hill, because we were having so much fun :)

Looks like you nailed the first control Bridget, unlike the rest of us!

Please keep it as Whela hill. It will be a funny talking point for many years if you do. I love maps with a history behind the name.

Not like Jim to make spelling mistakes.

I spell visually and therefore I get very twitchy whenever I see Kuitpo written as Kuipto, but others who spell phonetically possibly wouldn't even notice the difference...

Speaking of map names: Jim, was the orienteering map based around Spring Gully Reservoir really actually called Inside The Fence?
(I was remembering that when I looked down and saw it from the plane.)

It's official name is Yorkshire Hill. I have always called it ITF

Still think the champion Australian map name is Paradise No Shooting.

Paradise scares me. It’s one of the most isolated maps I’ve ever been on. If you keep running east off that map, the next major road you hit is the one from Mildura to Broken Hill.

Nah, you'll hit the track through to Caroona Station and Conservation Park fairly soon if you go either east or north :)

But it's true that there is nothing much out beyond the Burra mallee maps; I have always wanted to go to Faraway Hill:
