My rucksack, by this time, was cutting deeply into my shoulders, so I was relieved when a car finally stopped some yards ahead on the hot Queensland tarmacadam-paved road.
I grabbed the rear door quickly in case the driver changed his mind, and slung my rucksack into the back seat. When I slid into the passenger seat I saw the driver, a solid middle-aged male wearing a bush hat, eying me keenly. There was a half smile on his face.
"Trouble getting rides Mate?" he asked, as he swung the vehicle back onto the highway.
"God yes! I've been walking for hours without anyone offering a ride. I was some glad you stopped... thanks!" I said fervently.
He chuckled. "I hate to point this out Mate, but having a point 22 rifle sticking up from the back of your rucksack, doesn't exactly encourage drivers to stop."
I groaned. "Oh crimes, I never even thought of that!"
He glanced across at me again. "Can I ask why you're carrying the rifle son?"
I shrugged. "Well, I heard Australia was crawling with rabbits and figured I could bag some for the pot when I camp out."
Transform Your Life
The Transform Your Life Journal came about when I was involved as an international life coach for 15 years. A number of potential clients were contacting me from various places around the world. I obviously couldn't visit all of them so I designed the Transform Your Life Journal which would act as a blueprint for future success in their lives. Basically, it's like having your own personal life coach. If you truly want to change your life, this success journal will do it for you... abundantly!
