Is there anybody who is retired who wants another car as company to do some camping trips with in NSW .

I am going away to WA in April until the end of June , but before I go and when I come back I need some company to go camping / fishing / fossicking or just plain sitting on your backside contemplating your navel .

I can't go with my wife cos she works . I can't take my dog cos she is not allowed in NPs .

If anyone is interested in some company , they would have to have their own car and gear .

I just thought somebody might be at a loose end like me .

Now you'll think Im ofal .

Hi Willie:

I could be interested. Like you, I am heading off to WA (arriving April for an ANZAC Day gig with mates) and expect to be back around July after a run up the west coast.

My wife has only just retired, but is a keen traveller/camper.

Email me at jeller @ tadaust . org . au (just get rid of the blanks ...).

Cheers

Jack

G’day Willie

Mate you are a few year too early for me to take you up on the offer. Don’t know if it is a good idea anyway advertising like this on the web – there are some serious nutters reading these page. Then again they probably make for good company.

Kind regards

Do you think I'm a nutter, Beatit, because I read these pages - but I agree with you - there are some serious nutters (Wolfie, Des Lexic, etc. etc. - hahahahaha - I'll get in trouble now - oh yes, Roachie).

Serious ? Mostly. Nutters ? Definately. I also have a wife who also works, and I therefore travel by myself. (not as often as I'd like) I win all my arguements but am still always to blame whenever anything goes wrong. Which is often.
I love a bit of solitude after spending too many years in a noisy stressfull environment. No CD stackers in my vehicle, in fact I'm still not sure how to program new channels in the car radio.
Its nice to meet interesting people on the road. But being alone means that you are instantly "sus", even if you look like Father Xmas (probably especially so :) Your kids will make you new friends instantly, but mine have grown up.
I learned years ago that travelling companions were either a joy or the cause of ......well you know what I mean.
Look at our early explorers, most of the truly disasterous episodes were caused by crook companions.
I really shouldn't have said that.
People are what makes a good trip, a good town, a pleasant day.
Best of luck Willie. Hope you hook up with someone compatable

Oh no Ruth not at all. But then again they say that there is very little difference between being a loonie tune and a genius. Some days I reckon I should get classified so I would happiliy be thrown in with that lot. And what great company you and the others make - personnally I reckon their all geniuses really.

G’day Footloose almost had it done, spoke to Chairman Pete the other night and he said he’d quit if it wasn’t so by the end of the year. But since then the press have become involved and he is not quite as definite about this now.

Glad to see Pete enjoyed his holidays I funded ...well at least he did until he got home. I actually met one of the po litical power brokers from Qld a few years ago, out in the scrub (No, not the Charleville convention). Apart from the horns he looked normal. Mind you that was in the days before the 60 second chook feeding.
Of course Pete's not sure any more. He's still suffering from the jet lag. All those drinkies in 1st class are just sooo wearing when you have to make a statement to the press.
Overcast and opressive today. And the markets down again. Gotta cheer myself up somehow, now that I can't draw cartoons any more :))

Are you talking of those cartoons? It wouldn’t do to have them burning the Austrian Embassy – wait a moment they’ve already done this! Always seem to get the 2 countries mixed up. Just to link this with another thread I presume that littering the scrub is not an issue here?

Why not study medicine? The chairman is offering a big pay rise; probably do better at this than cartoons. That way you won’t have any loosing arguments either – never heard of a doctor that was wrong.

Kind regards

Ozzies do have a connection with that country...something to do with a bar in Sydney and a real estate girl I believe. Now she's apparently become a great dane.

Study medicine? As in trust me I'm a doctor ? That just frightens the heck out of anyone with a brain these days.

Guess I've been lucky, there's only been one ailment that I couldn't self diagnose correctly. Kid knee stone. One that wasn't just passing through. The Doc got to play star wars and take a hefty lump out of my pocket at the same time.

Twas a slow day on Ozzie
Not much goin on
A few posted questions
No answers, not one

Ah here's our young Willy
He needs a good mate
To sit by the campfire
To open the gate

But Beatit and Footy
Were waffling on
A thread has been hijacked
The question had gone

Now both of these fellas
Much better do know
Its a disgrace says Willy
And both of ya know
My posting was serious
Now ping off just go.

And now to the moral
I'm sure you'll agree
Two boys have been naughty
That's Beatit and me

We can say that we're sorry
But that's not enough
Poor Willy is out there
He's doing it tough
So if you have time
And are up for a trip

Please tell him right now....

Beatit, merely the ramblings of a deranged mind, mine ! :) A great pity that Willie is so far away. I'm sure we know of a few quick but enjoyable spots up here.
I have my own favourite that isn't much. It's just a spot to get away and reflect overnight. When I get back the next morning I've forgotten what was bothering me. We all need spots like those.
The last time, I arrived after dark, and the place was packed. Twas a dark and moonlit night and I was not amused to see so many. So I swung my lights around...and noticed a few peeking out wondering "what the !" heheheheheh

I hear what your saying so it means I'm equally deranged. Alway suspected this because the kids and bride have been telling me this for years. I'd be careful with that overnighter as some may add "dirty" to the old man status. I guess it solves the entertainment problem - so where is it?
