Maybe if I was older and could drive.
Where is campeltown?

campbelltown is like 1 hour away from the city and half hour away from wollongong, and half hour away from camden, half hour away from picton, 40 minutes away from penrith.

thats the only way I could describe where it is

Yeah I go there sometimes. It's pretty good. There's a comp there soon and the belco bowl jam is now sponsered by vans, I can't wait for the next one.

i was surprised it wasnt covered in wheelmarks because every other wallride spot i see is covered in little lines made from the wheels, so i thought no-one else had done it and i was original. awww... :)

Yeah bowl jam was sick! so was the triple set comp.
After me and my friends got to hang out with Richie Jackson he's cool.

And the day before was the ACT road rogues it was heaps of fun basically you get a list of tricks that you have to do around Canberra and you drive around and do them and you take photos of them, get to belco by 7pm and hand in the photos. Our team came third.
