Within the next 12 months


 As my heading states will be taking off for good, within the next 12 months, hopefully after this stupid virus is done and gone, on my bike with new camper in tow and also my dog. Quietly looking forward to permanently living on the road with my mate Milo. He is the very  best  of a very good friend, keeps me very sane. I don't think I will be carrying a computer( notebook or the like), nor will I have a mobile phone ( don't own one now). Will have my Sat. phone, an Spot Gen 3 epirb, and a handheld 80ch Uhf radio.  Just looking to be a hobo again after many years, but this time funded.  The only thing I wont be looking forward to is even though Milo is an Assistance dog (PTSD), I do cop a lot of flack from other travellers whilst on the road for having him along. I grin and bear it, but wish it would stop. Anyhow, it wont be long before I no longer will be on this forum, and will just enjoy the little bit of comraderee that may happen in the last few months. Thankyou all.

Well, the biggest problem, is the wife of 40 years, I have driven her to The Open Arms program, and she is not coping anymore because of my pscyh. probs. I am loading too much on her, I don't mean to, it just happens. She knows I am going, and that she will be getting my share of everything, so for both her sanity, and mine, this is the only way. She is definitely not happy about it, but I did say, I would probably come home one day, or every now and then, Have left it up to her to think about it, so she gets use to the idea. I doubt anything will change, just hope her sanity will survive after I am gone.

Had a SPANNER thrown at me, my Doctor rang a day ago to tell me that I have 2nd stage Bowel Cancer. It hasn't stopped me from finishing the camper and taking off first chance I get, but the wife, want s us to take off together for tour as soon as camping is allowed in NSW. So have agreed to that. Will be doing it in between treatment, but will be taking off this weekend for 3 days fishing locally, 50km round trip, with the dog, camping, hoping to gather my thoughts. I know we are not allowed to camp, but no one will be in this remote place, and no one comes out our way anymore, so have to go, no choice I need it badly.

Thankyou, I know, I am throwing a lot of personal stuff on this forum, that you wouldn't normally do, but have very few outlets for this, and it is anonymous, here as well, which is also helpful, thanking everybody for all the comments of support I have received.

 Sorry to hear of your plight Ric, things can only get better.............feel free to vent your thoughts here when you need to relieve some pressure, don't bottle it up to the point of it eating you up inside.

Everyone has a story of their own, some worse than others, yours is very sad and I hope you have a good outcome in the end.

Cheers Bob
