CanTeen Trip 2009

This year we just had a day trip for the CanTeen crew - Froggy took us out to Wilbinga and we had a bit of play in the dunes.

No dramas this year - we had one tyre roll off a rim but luckily not during a turn - Ozzie just hit a bit of a ridge and the tyre popped off. Of interest were the other idiots out there.

One guy in an older Jeep Cherokee was trying to climb a dune that had a bit of a sharp angle of entry to it at the bottom. He hit it at speed, bashed in the front, bottom part of his car and set the airbags off to boot. Nice work...

On the track into Wilbinga


Froggy's first attempt at climbing out of the bowl



Captain powering out of the bowl



Sparky not stopping as he climbs out



Paddy climbing out of the bowl



Pera in the bowl



Screech has one attempt....



And then makes it out



Goughie does it on the first try



But Tank doesn't



Bluey making the bowl look like a paved highway



Tank's second go at the climb



Ozzie showing how you should do it



Froggy finally doing it right



Glen (I think) on his first attempt



Once is not enough for Bluey



Glen makes it to the top



MacGyver's go



Paddy playing in the dunes



A random hill climb - too many white cars to figure out who it was and then HELLO MACCA!



Ozzie hits the rev limiter on a climb



Sparky does it easily



Captain does it almost without a run-up



And so does Fish



Paddy doesn't *quite* make it up



A random 100 series makes it up



Pera does it without any hassles at all



Tank makes the climb



Bluey has no hassles



Bluey climbing the final hill



Tazzie climbing the final haill
