Mt Macedon (VK3/VC-007) is an accessible drive-up summit that I have just not gotten to this year. Being so close to Melbourne it seemed a real pity to not get there if I possibly could in 2015. So, given the fabulously empty roads at this time of year, I hatched a plan to drive there before work, an activation on the way to the office, as it were. So on New Years Eve 2015 my alarm went at 5am, I turned the ignition key at 5.45, headed around the Ring Road and up the Calder with few cars in sight, and after a warm and pleasant drive of a bit over an hour parked at the top of Mt Macedon a few minutes after 7am. The night had been hot, and the forecast was for 39 degrees, so at around 24 degrees this was the nicest part of the day.
