Well, our honourary member Colin Craythorne is at it again! Local members will remember Colin, who under took an ambitious trans-Canada trip in his 2CV a couple of years ago (find some coverage of that trip here in our 2010 Gallery section ). This time, he is tackling the mighty country of Australia.
He shipped a 2CV to Australia from England, and then started a round trip from Melbourne to Cairns and back again. He tells me that he had had only one incident, shown in a photo, but without further explanation. Many 2CV owners would be able to provide a good guess about what might have happened. Here are some images from the trip.
Colin is a cancer survivor who lives life to the full. He just loves to visit places, meet people, and share his positive energy. Although not specifically intended as fund raising activities, it seems that people like to support what he does. As was the case for his cross-Canda trip, his Oz trip has now been associated with the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Unit at University College London Hospitals.
