Hey Ash and everyone on this thread!

I'm buying a car in Cairns and travelling down the east coast to Brisbane, Sydney, round to Melbourne and then to Adelaide via the Grt Ocean Rd! I'll be starting this on about 22nd September (for about 3 months) and stopping by numerous other places on the way too! Cant wait!!!

I'll be hoping to meet people en route, to have a right laugh with, and give lifts and share the cost of petrol with. If anyone fancies meeting up then cool, look me up on bookface. I reckon it beats going by bus!
As i have an extremely common name - David Atkins, instead search on facebook for Zammo Mcgregor (a mate of mine with a very rare name!) and look at his friends list and you'll see yours truly!!!

Anyways, roll on September and if I don't get to meet any of you, I hope you all have a wicked time in Oz!!!! Woo hoo!!!!

Hi David..
That sounds like a great plan. Dont think ill be up brisbane that early. just land in Sydney on the 19th and want to do alice springs first then over to cairns and down. but if I catch up with you down the way I would def be interested in travelling or even just to meet another
My only solid plan at mo is to be back in sydney for xmas and new years.
r u on a working hol visa r just travelling??

I've got myself a working holiday visa, how about you? I have a bit of cash saved up but don't want to spend the lot and so will be getting work after about a month I reckon.
Yeah that'd be cool if ya want to meet up, I'll look you up on facebook so we can keep in touch. I can't wait now! Its getting so close! Have you done much travelling before? It's all new to me but I have a feeling its going to be great! :)
