Hi John,

The safest site to find a legitimate travel partner is www.australianexplorer.com/forum/lonely/index.html

This site is Queensland owned and operated and there are no scammers. It's free to place an add, all the best

Be careful a lot of scammers out there. Don't send anyone any money no matter how sad their story seems.

no worries about scammers , im not handing out money to anyone, or offering a free ride , just some company and if dont have own transport some shared costs

cheers

Yes I am heading off on my own soon it would be nice to travel with someone even if not together meet up at places, I am thinking of staying at some farm stat places because they are quite cheap but wonder if it could be a tad isolated if on your own,

G'day all. I reckon there's a lot of blokes an sheilas lookin fer a travel mate. BUT... The blokes are keen and the sheila's are too worried about gittin into a double harness with someone they don't know. Theirs a lot of weird blokes out there, and the same with the sheila's too. l can't see why it can't work out though, I've been thinkin about buyin a good sized van or a fifth wheeler an git in back on the wallaby trail again, but after half a life of travelin around the country on me lonesome it's a bloody waste not bein able ta share it with someone else. I have an excellent 2002 Land cruiser I'm about to build a tray back camper for it, but thought if there was someone with a van and no tow vehicle or partner we could work out a deal. But it's always still a bit risky, but good luck anyway, a couple of blokes travelin together might be easier or a couple of sheila's, ya know how they like ta natter all day, they would probably take a month ov Sunday's ta hook up the van. An they can't change a flat or skin an cook a bit ov road kill anyway.

I will be looking for a travelling companion in a few months and I have a small dog who is very important to me. I do have a beaten up old hiace but if I got to know and trust someone I would be happy to share expenses and travel together in their rig. Maybe this could be a permanent thread for people like us?

 Not into eating road kill, I can shoot, skin, pluck, catch & cook game though. Changing a  a  tyre is not a problem either.. I am quite happy traveling & camping out on my "Pat Malone" :)

I hope to start traveling in the next few months and would like to travel with company. I live on Lake Macquarie in NSW. It would be handy to meetup with someone and make some plans first..... we dont want to get a couple of hundred miles down the track and find we get on each others nerves. I am a straight guy, 72 but certainly not looking for the "big romance", so open to contact from guys or gals. Open to suggestions..... I have already tried Oasis.com and Companions.com but no real interest there. I had one lady that was looking promising, but turned out to be an asian scammer.

Its hard to find the right person to travel with . Ive bought a Toyota hiace and am looking to get back on the road next year sometime. Get togethers are a good start ive not been very active on this site busy with life, busy staying Alive after two bouts of melanoma and just general life itself.

Good to see you back on board Della. I hope Mr Glassies is well? Keep on keeping on. We will all be back on the road again in a blink of an eye. It might be a long blink though here in Nth East VIC.




Keep Safe out there.
