Travelling companion needed

Hello! I'd like to try out my new Toyota Landcruiser for 3 Weeks in Tunisia (fully prepared). I'll start in Switzerland on 28. September 2002 and drive to Tunesia over Genoa (Italy). I'm a 57-year old straight Swiss guy who's already done an overland trip through Africa with the motorbike. I know how to fix the car and can open a beer and a can of beans and now i'm looking for a travelcompanion who knows how to dig out a car (just in case). That means, i'm getting off the beaten track. So if you're interested e-mail me: [email protected]

I can't go, but I wish I could...
I can put up a tent in seconds in the dark, make a mouth-watering curry from your can of beans, and open a bottle of beer with my teeth (in an emergency).
Have a great trip!

Jen - to bad that you can't make it. You just sound like the travelling companion of my dreams, you could have taken care of the beans and i would have been in charge of the beer... maybe next time!

OK - then I have a few years to perfect my digging-out skills.

Sure - but don't you think we should ask xxx to come along for those moments when we need a comedian?

Great idea. xxx has to tell good jokes while digging out the car and setting up the tent - we could enjoy the view and test the beer (if it's still good - you never know do ya?). Sounds perfect to me!

and when his jokes get stale we can tell him to write 'beens' 100 times on the windshield...

I'm not so sure about that, xxx writing skills are not that good i believe. He was so far not even able to sign up properly. So writing 'beens' soooo many times might be too much for him. But we'd be generous, we would also accept it if he only cleaned the windshield and the dishes.

Dishes? Are you getting posh on me? I thought we had to eat the bean curry out of the can! Well if we're going 5-star, when the engine overheats, xxx can hold the water hose over my head so I can take a hot shower.
I'm off to S. Africa tomorrow for 2 weeks. Hope you get some fun applicants for Tunesia ;-)

A little luxury from time to time doesn't hurt but you're right, i think i'll leave the good porcelain service at home this time. Jen i wish you a great trip in S-Africa, what a beautiful country. I can understand your decision -explore S-Africa or digging out my car-... Take care and enjoy!

By now, Schteffel, I hope you've got a great companion (snif) and are packing the beans & shovels. South Africa was loaded with superlatives, though I didn't have to do any digging, just a push out of the mud once in Transkei. I gained 3 kilos - far too much good food & wine, & not enough curried beans in a can, I guess... ;-)
