Cool Xyala @ OverClocking-TV - Epic Backpacking Trip in Australia

Hi guys,

Some of you might know me from Overclocking-TV, it's a web-TV which aims to produce videos about OC related stuff. OCTV isn't based in any country, which makes us quite mobile and always looking for new fun projects around the world.

2013, EPIC year in Australia

This year, I took a short break to move live for a while in Australia (Yeah! French invasion). I am now since 6 months working at ASUS in Sydney, but it is now time for me to move on, back to the roots, back on the road and take an adventure that has always been a dream.

I will be traveling all around Australia for the next 2/3 months (starting mid-April ). The plan is to visit each corners of Australia, starting from Melbourne then Tasmania, Adelaide, Perth, Alice springs, Darwin, Port Douglas and down the gold coast back to Sydney.

Since I will be stopping in Australia's biggest cities, I had in mind of making a short documentary on Australian overclocking. The idea is to visit all of you guys that are volunteer to meet, and shoot some short interviews, or simply have a chat about hardware, OC or just life My point is to simply introduce the Australian OC community to the world, from it's most famous figures to the most eccentric ones. It's all about fun, friendship and overclocking!

All I will be asking for is shelter for a night or two ( I have a tent etc. so I'm cool to sleep on the floor or outside in the garden) and a fresh beer. Please don't think about anything fancy, I like it simple.
I will be traveling with my girlfriend which is an excellent chef, so be ready for a nice meal if you welcome us to your home!

The schedule

To let you check if you are free when I will be around, here is an approximate schedule of the trip. Things might change from a week or so, but no worry I will call you in case stuff moves around.

Starting from Sydney...
  1. Canberra - 18/04
  2. Hobart - 20/04
  3. Melbourne - 29/04
  4. Adelaide - 4-5/05
  5. Perth - 11 May
  6. Alice Springs - 23/05
  7. Darwin - 7/06
  8. Cairns - 16/06
  9. Brisbane - 26/06
  10. (Newcasthe - 1/07)


Taking contact

What do you think? If you like the idea, shoot me a message below with indications of your city, contact details and favorite time. Feel free to ask any questions, and if some of your would like to join the trip for some parts, no problem at all! Fans of hiking, bush walking and photography are most welcome to join us in the adventure.

I can also be contacted by phone (04-24-86-24-** - PM for last digits ), email (Xyala at overclocking-tv.com) or by PM on this board or hwbot's one.

Thanks ahead for all participating hands! If you can't host don't worry, we can always catch up for a beer anyways. Again leave details so I can reach back to you on the spot.

Enjoy!

Sounds like a fun trip, and a great idea.

You should also do a series on the Ghetto modders of Oz. We Aussies have a certain skill with cable ties and coathanger wire that is unrivalled by other countries.
