For a wandering hermit like me this is quite a big move. After all, taking on someone else involves sacrifice and compromise, a difficult task for an old hobo. Which is why it needs to be the right person. And from what I've seen so far she is. Lee would say she's 'proper strine', a right raucous Aussie sheila. She's incredibly low maintenance, down to earth, loves randomness, up for anything, got a mad sense of humour, a filthy mind and a dirty laugh. What more could you want? She's bonza and will make a crankin' road buddy, a cracker roadie, no shit Sherlock I'm serious, straight up, bloody oath! It's a spin out! I'm tellin' ya fair dinkum she'll be right aye Cob? In fact I'll bear my arse on Bourke she'll be apples, I shit you not..
So once again I hang up the hat of solitude and join forces with another restless soul. Plans are being made. She's in the process of chucking her stuff into storage and giving up the house. I'm in the process of getting an MCC ('medicare card'), a TFN (tax file number) and a better phone network, as well as a new tyre for the back of the SV. Oh and we're on the lookout for a swag and a billy, and a coolibah tree to camp under on those starry starry nights.
Once this is sorted and we've recovered from the big fat bye-bye bash it'll be time to hit the road. Which is just as well, my feet are itching proper..
