Here we are catching up with Tom Cole again. Last time we talked about him we had just found out that he was getting an offsider in the form of Darwin barber and former ballroom dancer Samuel Delaney. Not really the sort of bloke you would think of as roughing it and hunting wild buffalo. So far I have been unable to find out any further news about how their trek through the wilds went, and this article may give us a hint as to why.
It seems Tom Cole is in the process of opening a tourist trap, a ‘Dude Ranch’ where people can kill all day and sleep comfortably at night. Although, touting the virtues of a place by telling me that it has crocodile infested rivers is not going to get me there!
Quite a departure from where we have seen Tom in the past, spending Easter on an exposed platform surrounded by miles of floodwaters or being knocked about by horses.
I am now suspicious of the original article I posted about Samuel Delaney and his desire to become more of a bushman. It is beginning to sound more like a sneaky advertising campaign!
