companions for overland track, departing 11 Feb 2019

I'm booked for the Overland Track, departing Cradle on 11/2/19. I was going to do it with my sister but she has had to drop out, so I'm looking for someone also departing on that date who might like to team up. I'd be happy to remain self-sufficient in equipment and catering, but it would be good for safety to have a buddy or two. The OT is well-defined and well-travelled, but it is still remote from civilisation and it would be an asset to have some companion or companions in case of an incident requiring evacuation. I do own a PLB, which could be a useful thing if you break an ankle in Waterfall Valley, or wherever.
I am a fit and healthy 64 year old and have plenty of experience, including bushwalking in Tasmanian conditions. Some would describe me as shy and reserved, but I'm usually in a good mood when I'm out and about in the wild places, doing what I enjoy most. I hope to hear from someone.
