Travel companion for 4x4 camping in Australia

Hi, looking for travel companion for 4x4 camping adventures of Australia. Share (split expenses) or tag alone with own rig (own expenses) A bit about myself:- 64 years young, healthy male with 25 yrs camping/4x4 experience. Like isolated camping for photography, either coastal or inland, enjoy it all. Person with photography interest would be good. During my travels I've circumnavigated Aust twice and covered a lot of the inland but in reality only covered a small portion.  Big country when you get out there, will never be able to see it all! Have a well set up 4wd and camper for self sufficient camping, only retricting  component is available water (showers etc) and food carried. If tag along you will need a simiular rig or perhaps a caravan for travel and share my rig for rougher isolated areas? i've been semi retired for 5 years (currently working in Cent.Qld 7on/7off) and will fully retire sometime this year to pursue travelling adventures fulltime. If your scared of the dark, isolated travel, don't know how to look after yourself this is not for you! As I'll be doing this virtuality full time I'm open to any options, maybe tag along for a week or two, a month or more (?) who knows. Happy to discuss anything. Starting direction will depend on seasons at departure time (South if summer, North if winter - most likely south) If inquisitive and want to know more post a comment as1st point of contact. Regards.

Hello Vgirl, Covid has created havoc with travels, scampered back to Qld just before the border was closed, will have to wait until under control before traveling out of Qld again.
If you want to chat best to contact me via email.

hello there.
Would like to keep track of where you are in the hope that I can catch up with you somewhere, sometime.
I am a 60 yr old female camper from way back, Brisbane area, retired, with my own 4x4 but its not decked out yet.

Hopefully that'll happen by christmas 2020. Have done a bit of beach driving, but always like to challenge myself.

Good fisherwoman if they're on the bite!
Usually need to camp beside water of some kind as I love long as theres no crocs!
Many interesting places to travel to. Off the tourist tracks?? If we share expenses I would not want to stay in caravan parks with 100 other motorhomes....not too often anyway. Maybe for a shower/washing/watch footy game.

Are you stuck anywhere during Covid? Hope all is well in that regard.
Send me a message if you feel inclined to reply. Regards Vgirl

It would be great if I could find someone in the Central Vic around the Bendigo and Echuca areas.

Hi Phil, I don't run "Tagalong" type tours, just travel by myself and looking for travel companions for either long or short term periods. I'm in CQ area volunteering after the fires, doing fencing, cleaning up etc. so will be a bit delayed getting down into Victorian High Country area. Watching conditions - don"t need fires!!
