Happy Birthday Your Majesty - June Canberra Getaway

Postby Tryg » Mon Mar 10, 2008 8:06 pm

All those who would like to do a quick winter trip to Canberra, experiencing Tidbinbilla, the Cotter loop, lunch on the lake and the Australian War Memorial (for their new exhibits - honouring the Vietnam Vets, Peace Keepers and actions since), start expressing your interests here.

This would be for ride in: Saturday 7th, do the loop, AWM etc on Sunday 8th and ride out Monday 9th.

The Formula 1 motel starts at $70.

I know most families get away on the long-weekends, but for those who don't....

G,day Tryg,

Pleasde accept my expression of confusion -err- interest. Never need a real big excuse to visit an old stomping ground.

Will check dates at work and see what transpires

I am feeling your pain, they still call the first Gulf War today's era... lets face it, its almost 20 years ago....

They have only just received recognition too....

I know how painful it must seem to the VVets, Australia should have treated our boys better...

Just my 2c

G'day Effy,

I know where you're coming from - as a young bolke going to sea in the mid seveties at not quite 18yoa most of the mentors around me were vets. They probably were a little further removed from the shite that was flying 'round when they got home 'cause they were in blues not greens but I watched those guys get old in front of my eyes trying to deal with things pretty much on their own. It was gut wrenching to say the least.

I'll bet you could tell us some of the reality behind some of the exibits in the AWM. Be worth the trip to Canberra just for that experience alone!
