I retired when I was 49 years old after 30 years service driving steam, diesel and electric engines on goods and passenger trains for the NSW Government Railways. In Summer, I travel South, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and back through the inland to Qld in March for some time on the yacht, then North to Cooktown and inland by car (NOT YACHT), for the winter, camping, gold detecting, farm work, house sitting or exploring the beaches.
I don't drink or smoke, am reliable, dependable and honest.
As a helpx host; I have hosted many travellers either on the 11 metre yacht, which sleeps 6, on my friends farm or when travelling with me to work on farms in all States. I have painted many National Trust houses and house sat 1O houses.
I have a vehicle, trailer with 3.5 metre small boat, gear for house painting, maintenance and camping. I have been around Australia 3 times, like all animals, isolated places, boating and op shops. As a helper, I seek places that the hosts would like some painting or maintenance done, as it is not physically demanding and I can work at my own pace.
Other than the above I'm a rather quiet, reserved type.
