Cobras, Creepers and turning 38

Birthdays are somewhat a reflective time. Pushing 40 is slightly confronting when you think about it, and then it passes quickly and you revert back to not really caring. I still wanted to cram a fair bit into my weekend to briefly alleviate that completely washed up feeling. I had to work Saturday and was keen for a fang on The Grim Creepers new mini. The NSC crew and The Grim Creepers share mutual territory but so far it has been all beers, skids and deathmatch free.

The compound entrance came correct

The kitchen had become a tattoo studio for the evening with Ratcorpse on the trigger

I never shoot with flash and I found a crappy one to use for the evening. I kinda blew these shots, but they still tell a story so I would rather share them then delete them

Lexi didn’t seem to care that the heavy dew had made the ramp far too slippery to skate. He did a stationary kickflip from the platform into the ramp. He rolled in from the roof, didn’t land it after several punishing attempts and then did it switch! So sorry I blew it with the capture. You get the idea

I called it a night and went home to rest up for a mission to sunny Melton the next day. It was a bust lately so we missioned up the creek.

Cobras are native to the area. They kept popping up everywhere. Jerks

It is such an epic spot. Photos don’t do it justice. It is way bigger and intimidating in person.

Everyone got some. I always try and get a photo of everyone on the mish, unfortunately not the case this time. I was having too much fun.

We hit the surprisingly fun Melton park and then some crew came to mine for a BBQ. Derek and Jamie made my an epic cake with donuts and dinosaurs and my beautiful wife had the nibbles and salads ready to go.

I took Monday off and drove through the mountains and skated Balnarring by myself. Such a fun bowl.

And then caught up with my nephew Archie, whose birthday is 3 days before mine and my brother, who has the same birthday as me. Archie’s Mum and Grandma got him an epic sundae and he was pretty stoked.
