Background: Australian. Given to us by Crocodile Dundee:
A spontaneous journey through the wilderness of one's choosing in an effort to satisfy one's itchy feet, a need to be elsewhere, the craving for the open road, that space over the horizon...yes... something like that... you can't quite touch it so you have to go find it because it's you just know it's there...Or maybe it just feels good to go walking around ... :wink: Yeah. It's WALKABOUT.
See "Crocodile Dundee" 1986 starring Paul Hogan.
See me waving 'see ya later' as I disappear over the horizon. :)

A loosely planned journey or goal. Some sort of guidelines which will set you up for an adventure of highs and lows, trials and tribulations. An adventure of discovery filled with wisdom to be ascertained. A Walkabout creates the opportunity to discover the world from your own lens, and is a surefire way to realize your capabilities.
Sometimes I feel pigeonholed into other people's preconceptions of how to live a life. I'm going to go on a Walkabout and figure this shit out with my own point of view.

A trek usually around woop woop which has little or no goal other than admiring nature, and the personal satisfaction of walking around the middle of nowhere and making it home alive.

Usually the recount of the trek is exaggerated to add extra excitement and trill. The trek in actual fact is usually very dull.

Walkabout's really have no logical reason or appeal other than to combat boredom with adventure. Many people who participate in walkabout's are usually told their "crazy" and "are gonna get themselves killed one day".
benj: I just got back from a walkabout northern NSW
dazza: Tell us about it
benj: Well, I was walking down past Eungella and saw this huge brown belly on the side of the road, didn't see it until I was right over it, bit me leg, thought I was a goner, but these hippies came by and took me to the hospital, bloody life savers, they are!
dazza: You're a bloody legend

A highly selective alternative program for college bound high school seniors. The program consists of several challenge areas including advanced academics, volunteer service work, internship, two wilderness experiences, and a final presentation. Walkabout aims to teach their students to love learning and help them to make it in the real world.

Walkabout is basically the most amazing thing ever and only once you have experienced it will you know. It's like a cult and all the walkabout years are family.
Walkabout has given me a chance to succeed and made me excited for life again.

In video games you can do two things: complete the mission or roam around the level checking out all the nooks and crannies and plan on completing the mission at some point but for now you're just exploring. It now applies to young people who do not have a definite direction but are exploring different jobs and looking for a career or a niche in life. It can be a sad time in a young person's life.
Matt is still on the walkabout. He's gonna be 28 and has no idea what he wants to do, too bad he majored in art history.

The process by which you get a boner and get in the bath tub filling it up with water so just the tip of your knob is above the water. Place a fly on the tip that has had its wings removed (aka a walk) so that it walks all over the tip. If you can stick the fly to the ceiling, give yourself double points.
I havent seen Jon ever since I told him what a walk about was...come to think of it, I havent seen a fly in this place in a while either.
