Canteen 2003 (Second Trip)   
April 5, 2003
We take the kids from CanTeen on a trip to Grey.

This was the third CanTeen trip for me - the second this year. Once again, Froggy did a fantastic job in co-ordinating with the CanTeen folk.

Our drivers for the weekend were:

Day One - Saturday

To start the weekend, we headed down to the CanTeen headquarters to pick up everyone and their gear. Nothing unusual here - just a few photos for posterity. Skip's car was loaded down with kit - pictures of this a little later. Then, a quick run to Yanchep for morning tea and some rowboat exercises for the trip participants. Along the way, the kids quickly got into the spirit of things by asking Froggy why he still had road tyres on his car. Similarly, someone was discussing "pelvic floor muscles of steel" but I wasn't privy to the background on this one. For our morning tea, we met with a few of the local inhabitants. Next it was up to Lancelin for lunch. After lunch we headed north through Wedge to Grey. Once there, we dropped of the CanTeen crew and headed to Big Pete's Pizza Hut. Thanks muchly to Pete for letting us use his shack. He was going to come on the trip but had some vehicular problems.

Sunset at Grey was spectacular and we settled in for a nice night of eating and conversation.

Day Two - Sunday

The next morning we headed out onto the dunes for a bit of a play as we usually do. We did some driving, the kids did some sand boarding and then finished up with some sock wrestling.

Now, some of you are likely to be upset by one of the photographs in the following set. If you are then email me and complain - don't go off at the club or anyone else. I was driving and am responsible for my own actions. No-one forced me to do anything and I was acting within what I consider to be my own boundaries of safety. I did not do anything without first determining that I thought it was safe. No-one was hurt, nothing was damaged (except a battery). So live with it. 'Nuff said.

As it turns out, the lip on the top of the dune in question here was quite sharp and most people got a little bit of air because of the speed required to crest the dune. I decided (after some prodding) to have another go at a different angle. The result pretty much speaks for itself. Thanks to Skip for taking the photo. With the frivolities over, we dropped the CanTeen crew back in Grey for lunch and headed back to the shack to have lunch ourselves and pack up. Heading back to Perth, we stopped in Lancelin to air up and then at the Moore River bridge on the highway just for fun. Finally, a nice drive back into Perth rounded off the weekend.

Once again, thanks to the CanTeen people for organising the weekend, Froggy for doing the club end and especially thanks to the other drivers - I had a blast and I hope the rest of you did as well.
