Last night I went with Rob to the La Trobe Mountaineering Club where I signed up to become a member. The activity for the evening was rock climbing on the side of the school gym. The club provided shoes and harnesses for everyone. I sort of remembered what I was doing, it’s been many many years since I climbed. But I belayed Rob and he’s still alive, so that’s good. They gave us a refresher course and most people had never done it before. Rob and I showed people how to put harnesses on properly so they don’t die.
Rob ended up belaying a lot of people since he was comfortable doing it. It was fun. Everyone was very nice and friendly. We signed up for The Big Weekend which takes place the weekend after this coming one. It’s a 3 day camping/kayaking/rock climbing trip. I don’t know how I got conned into going camping in Australia, something I swore to Rob wasn’t happening. I’m looking forward to it. Since I haven’t attended an indoor pool kayaking I get to learn how to roll and recover in the river. Brr.
