Re: The Open Road Outback


He was tired of the snickering and sneers. He wasn't going to stand by and be ridiculed any longer. It was time for the the name calling and teasing to end. He had a new plan, a new journey... to start fresh.

The open road was calling and he was going to find somewhere he belonged.


This is my first entry for this week. It's the story of starting your life over in a new location. Honestly, I just really wanted to do a platypus in a design, so this is the result.

Comments are welcome! Cheers!

As a professional nomad, I must have it. And I really love your style, lkackman. GMV.

Thanks! You and I sir, are travelers from the same line. Except I only consider myself a quasi professional trecker. I stay in the woods and stay of the roads. I one day play to hike the entire AT. Perhaps not at one time, but in my lifetime I would like to do it all. Thanks for the support!

Nice! Maybe the platypus can be the new penguin/turtle/tree on Woot.

Love this!
y'know, I just don't see enough platypuses(?) on t-shirts - they need more love!

This is cool! I like the art and concept.

I do hope the platypus makes more appearances here. Note to self, platypus playing Zelda on old school Nintendo = paycheck.

Seriously, I think this one's great!!!

I love platypuses. They are not used often enough.

I'm more of a trekkette, than a trekker. XP

I've clocked just over 900 miles on the NSTs. Hope to join the 1000 club soon. So good luck to you. I'm also a trekking guide in East & West Africa so if you ever find yourself thattaway, let me know.

Wish this one was doing better. Poor platypus.

Err... heh sorry i didn't know you were a female. I would certainly do so if I ever planned a trip to africa. My girlfriend lived there for 2 years so I know it is in the cards to go back! My best trek so far is doing all of the Superior Hiking Trail on MNs north shore. Took 5 trips to do it (stupid school costs) but it is more then worth it in my opinion. Send me a message if you ever plan a trip into Quetico and the BWCA.
