The office is where I post the mundane things such as disclaimers, copyright, privacy policies and such... Unfortunately necessary in this day and age. My aim is simple whilst I explore the ACT,  to share factual information and provide links on this weblog to interesting and informative material. All in all remember for me it's a hobby and a chance to exercise with the dog. (Scruff McTuff)

Most places I visit are under the control of the ACT Government although some places are in the hands of private owners or organisations.  In the course of my research I travel to many varied places within the ACT. I always attempt to get the permission of the landowner or organisation in control of the area containing a relic.
