Outback road trip

Hi, I'm a 64 year old male and planning a road trip from Gippsland, Victoria through outback NSW, central Australia and on to Darwin. All over a four to five week period in October 2020, if boarders are open. 

I'm planning to do a lot of gold detecting in remote locations and would like a travel companion, male or female, who can tag along in their own 4x4 or accompany me in mine and share the fuel & food costs. 

You will have to bring your own camping and detecting gear. We will be traveling through remote areas and there won’t be much in the way of comforts. You should be fit and able to tolerate isolation for most of the trip.

Very cool, be good to get out and see a river or two.. just waiting on parts for my girl, doing allllll those little things whilst waiting.
Although, one little thing turned into a $1000 service thing, and that's with my labour ..
Fixing a minor rocker cover leak and that turned into glow plugs and injectors... not cheap.. good to get it done though.. I'm heading for w.a when it's open so I've been giving her a huge service... fluids all round etc
I've got your email so I'll contact you there bloke.. cheers

Hi Wayne. I have holidays booked from 5th to 30 October. But I am not expecting boarders to be opened. As such, I will now more than likely be spending the time in the central Victorian gold fields. Happy for you to tag along. If NSW boarder is open I will be traveling to some of there gold detecting spots.

I will also be going out camping on weekends in Gippsland when restrictions are relaxed and happy for you to tag along as well. There are quite a few gold detecting spots that I want to go to.

Hello, sounds good.. I'm in the gipplands also. Like to hear more about your plans. 
Got a 4x4, no prospecting gear as of yet, when are you thinking of booting off.
