I am a male 58 years old.

Leaving in 6 weeks from Vic and have the ultimate Sunliner with toilet, shower, kitchen, toilet, awning, queen bed to share as I have my destination equipment in the overhead bed as my wife has decided she wants to live a different life, whatever that is..

If you don’t want to share the bed then bring a small tent and do it that way.

I have a portable washing machine, the Motorhome has radio, tv, wifi, uhf, Eperb, torches, light, barbeque, everything you would expect from a luxury apartment including full size fridge, even a laptop.

I have gps, Wifi for text etc, Use of Brand new quad bike 250cc, tools etc, spare wheels both Motorhome and Trailer.

I need someone who loves travel and is into gold prospecting and fishing or give it a go as it is all new to me.

I hate fishing but will give it a go.

If you have rod bring with you and I want to gold prospect as well and bought a Whites TDI SL Detector and have a gold pan etc.

Start the journey from Melbourne and go to South Australia and Coober Pedy, then WA, and back to Vic and onto NSW, then to QLD.

Should take 8 months.

And that is where I will sell the Motorhome and Trailer and buy a unit in a resort and buy a cafe.

I am 58 years old and if you are interested

On board we have kitchen with stove and grill.

Airconditioning supplied by power or purpose built trailer with solar with massive batteries and inverter capable of running the whole unit including airconditioning including a 3,8 kw generator.

Including a light on the trailer.

This is all being currently being built for the trip as I type this.

All you need is a fishing rod if you like to do that and I already have a gold pan and tools.

You will need a fishing license and prospecting for Vic, WA, NSW, Qld.

SA you do not require a license to fossick or fish.

I am going to leave within 6 weeks approx and you will need to chip in at the start $ 5,500.00 and includes initial food, watrer, beer, gas and fuel, you will need to provide money for alcohol, food and site fees where applicable, all other fuel supplied in your initiall cost..

I have mozie coils and outside table and exterior heater and chairs including fishing seat and tackle.

If you don’t have a rod I will purchase 1.

We will stay in various spots and some may include Caravan parks etc and fees will apply.

Bring a fly and insect hat net and sunscreen.

The person must be willing to assist in all aspects of this trip and clean, cook, lift, prospect, fill tanks and anything that needs doing as I would.

This will be a great adventure for roughly 8 months and finishing in the gold coast.

This is not for dating by any means, but for a travel companion willing to share expenses after initial costs.

Hi Andy
I noticed that you had an answer from a lady called Lynne on 6/4/17. She was a school teacher, retiring at the end of the year. If you could forward my email address to her if you didn't take her up on her offer I would greatly appreciate it. I seperated from my wife some months ago and have set up my 4wd and Off Road caravan to do an extended round Australia and would enjoy the company.
Regards Malcolm.

Don't sell it. Wait! I retire at the end of the year and would love to join you.

I also am 58. I am a primary school teacher.

I have travelled around Australia twice. Once with a caravan with my mum, who was 70 at the time and my daughter who was 10. We stayed on the sealed roads.

Then I travelled with a male friend in his ute. It was a tough trip and very different to the first one. We went to very out of the way places.

I am adventurous and brave.

What do you think
