Hi Mike!

What route are you planning on taking? Yeah i'll be working along the way aswel and I've been told work is pretty easy to come by so that shouldn't be a problem.

how much money you taking for a van man? i just had a look at bus prices and they're pretty fair to be honest so im going to have to have a think about that one. where are you spending nye?

cheers dude

to be honest mate it is cheaper for the bus but there is so much freedom with a van, and a bit more security and some times if you cant get a hostel you can just sleep in the van without worries, and in regards to nye a few of my mates travelled oz a few years ago and they spend nye and christmas on a beach with about 100 others travellers so i dont care what i do for nye just happy to have a few drinks with people and camp what ever just go with the flow man

cheers man

Hey guys,

I'm heading to melbourne on the 31st august and am thinking of staying there for maybe 2 months to work and meet but then want to head off somewhere. i haven't got a driving license so am looking for someone who can drive... willing to pay halves on everything (car, petrol, repairs). i haven't got a plan so far so up for anything/anywhere really. Let me know if this sounds any good and we can chat about it.
