Gary Smith and Scott Wil­ton

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN’ IN THE TROPICS WITH ALF WILSON -

KEEP­ING fit is one of the ad­van­tages of de­liv­er­ing al­co­hol around Townsville for Gary Smith (pic­tured front) and co-worker Scott Wil­ton.

It was a hot 34 de­grees when Big Rigs saw them on Oc­to­ber 13 de­liv­er­ing beer, wine and spir­its to a bot­tle shop in the sub­urb of Mount Louisa.

They work for Townsville Trans­port Ser­vices and get around in a Nis­san UD truck.

“The most pop­u­lar al­co­hol we de­liver is Great North­ern Beer and XXXX and the Nis­san is great for the job,” Gary said.

Other TTS trucks travel west to Char­ters Tow­ers and to towns south and north.

“We mainly go around Townsville to many out­lets. I have been in the job for 18 months,” Scott said.

The pair ad­mits they are pop­u­lar, de­liv­er­ing am­ber fluid which quenches so many thirsts.

They both en­joy fish­ing when off duty and Scott also is a rugby league player.
