Scott Fry

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

MANY truck­ies are gen­uine Aussie char­ac­ters and that is the case with Glad­stone-based driver Scott Fry, a for­mer butcher.

Out­side work, one of Scott’s recre­ations is hunt­ing deers, which he has done with some suc­cess around Gympie.

Scott drives a Ken­worth K200 for B&K Haulage and was parked up in Townsville on Oc­to­ber 13 when I yarned to him.

“I am car­ry­ing ce­ment pow­der be­tween Cairns and Townsville and have been a truckie for about five years af­ter be­ing a butcher,” he said.

The 36-year-old said it was a top truck and was swift with a re­sponse when asked the worst road he gets along.

“It would have to be the sec­tion of the Flin­ders High­way be­tween Hugh­en­den and Rich­mond,” he said.

Scott’s main dis­like whilst trav­el­ling the high­ways and by­ways are “idiot car­a­van and car driv­ers who put lives at risk”.
