"Alternate Route Tuggeranong"

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, November 21, 2006 with 3 comments
I don’t know what the fuss is about. The sign is clear and unambiguous. Every second time you want to travel from Belconnen to Tuggeranong, you take the Coppins Crossing Route.

These "alternate route" instructions springing up around Canberra are obviously designed to split the traffic fifty-fifty, ensuring cars are spread evenly around our roads..

quote of the day "Cross-country. Finally a good use for golf courses."

Fruit Chutney Pork Chops

Article in the Canberra Times on 12 March 2003!


1. Southy’s W50 record 1500m of 5:02 has certainly destroyed Maria's old and very good time of 5:28. Poor Maria! A little goosey tells me Southy is running the 10k this Thursday. Even if it reaches 40 degrees on the track, the existing W50 record, 41:04 held by Rosemary Longstaff, will be smashed!

2. We now have a team mascot, a soft toy named Loosey. (Yes, Loosey is a goosey)

3. It is hot out there now! Summer is here, for how long I do not know, but 100k weeks for me - who always sleeps in - will be a challenge.

  1. That looks like almost a tempting trail rightbehin those chairs...

    When do we get a photo of the new mascot?

  2. Surely it can't be 40 degrees at 8pm?!

    My guess is that it'll only be smashed by 2 to 3 minutes, that's all.

  3. loosey the goosey! now i really DO need a photo! :) come to think of it, my brother and i love pork chops too...
