People I met along the way – IV


Meet Paul. I saw a loaded up dirt bike pull into Coles at Tom Price. It looked well setup and I wondered who was on it and where they were headed.

I met the rider on the way in, a nice bloke called Paul. We got chatting and it turns out he’s been on the road touring Oz for a year! Good effort.

The day was getting on and neither of us had a camp spot in mind. We got some supplies and checked out a likely bush camp spot about 10 km out of town. Perfect.

It was good to meet a kindred spirit and talk about road trips and the practicalities of travel by bike. Paul has a target of living on $30 a day. I have a long way to go to achieve that one!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
