Hi,

I'm looking for someone to join me on a monster road-trip across Australia. I'll be relocating from Sydney down to Victoria so that will be the first part of the trip (not much sightseeing, will be a direct trip) and my travel companion may not necessarily want to join me for this. However, if you do, we'd be heading down to a farm owned by friends, very beautiful country and very nice people with lots to do down there; if you haven't experienced farm life in Aus then you won't get a better chance to do it than here.

So that is the first real stop from Sydney, will be there a couple of days as we will be changing cars. From there we'll be going to do some yabbying, lots of other fishing/hunting to be done down there if interested, then visiting some of my friends over the border in SA. We'll go fishing with a friend of mine at a really beautiful place, travel on up toward Adelaide and stay with some of my friends there. Then it's on to Port Augusta/Coober Pedy up toward Alice Springs and Ayers Rock. Onward to Katherine and then West in the direction of Broome.

My final destination is the community up on the peninsula of Cape Leveque and I cannot guarantee my travel companion will be able to accompany me this far (would need to be arranged, not impossible, just not automatic) as permission is needed from the local aboriginal people. You will be able to get as far as Derby/Broome with me for sure.

It's an absolute monster trip - 6800kms - so I obviously have a few conditions for anybody who is going to sit next to me for that long!

1) YOU MUST BE ABLE TO DRIVE. Legally.
2) Must be financially secure.
3) Must not be psycho.
4) Must like music.
5) Must speak enough English to understand the general meaning of this post.
6) Interesting people preferred.
7) Fuckwits and government agents need not apply.

A bit about me and the trip: 26 years old, male, Australian. Educated, just finished working and moving on to something new. I play some guitar, enjoy sport (football/soccer, cricket, AFL, baseball), like poker and enjoy talking about politics, have travelled a bit and lived in Europe (I speak German and a little French). The trip is essentially a mission to get the car up to WA for my mum. There is no time limit, I'll travel at a comfortable pace and stop when there's something to see, take photos, explore a bit. I haven't set a start date but most likely at the end of October or very beginning of Novemeber I'll be leaving Sydney and the trip should take 2.5-4 weeks total. Oh, and there will be NO EXPENSES for the travel.

If you meet those 7 requirements and could handle sitting next to the aforementioned person for that distance, then please send me a short intro email about yourself, anything you might want to see on the trip etc. Only one seat available so get in touch.
