here. We had a quick hack on the beach on Friday night after dropping the CanTeen crew off. These pictures are from the morning after the night before... We picked up the CanTeen crew and headed for Wedge. Froggy got us lost (again - we weren't surprised) but we had fun along the way. Once at Wedge we wasted no time playing on the dunes. First up was a long session climbing a steep dune. On the way to lunch we had a tricky little traverse - Sparky did an awesome recovery (that we all missed on video - damn!) where the back end of his car was in the air. While most of us were exiting, a recovery was underway on the top of the previous dune. The two cars involved had rated recovery points and one of those points snapped. Luckily, no-one was injured but it just goes to show that even with the right equipment in the right environment being used in the right way - accidents can still happen. After the activities it was time to have lunch on the beach. After lunch we headed back towards Lancelin. Amazingly, we made it back early so we used the opportunity to play on the dunes near Lancelin. Next morning we took it pretty easy. Short trips to the bakery, packing up and off to the beach! As it happens the beach was pretty boggy. Froggy got stuck first but was snatched out. But then it got harder... At this point the high tide was in and the beach was somewhat under water and very mushy. Froggy decided to push forward and just pushed a little too much... No photos here but much effort went into digging Froggy out getting him on his way and then also digging Radar out so he could follow. Everyone got wet (as the waves came up to the cars) but it all went well. After this, the rest of us turned around (with some difficulty) and headed back. Because we still had some time up our sleeves we went back to the dunes! And finally, because we were early picking up the CanTeen crew (for once) we scooted down to the beach for a bit of a yarn. I had a great time - thanks for everyone for being there and also thanks to the CanTeen crew for letting us come out to play! There are some scratches in my new Jeep (some which probably won't come out) but the car is designed to be used! And it got used this weekend... " />

West Coast 4x4 CanTeen trip for 2007

A quick synopsis of the trip: Pick up the CanTeen crew in Wanneroo on Friday night; drive to Lancelin and drop them off; day trip to Wedge on Saturday; WC4x4 crew mess around by themselves on Sunday; pick up the CanTeen crew in Lancelin and head back to Perth.

This was my new Jeep's first trip and I had ball. More photos from the WC4x4 crew are here.
