Jamie Smith

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN’ IN TASSIE WITH JON WALLIS -

PASS­ING through Kemp­ton re­cently we stopped over at Mood Food, the ex­cel­lent 24 hour truck stop, for a great cof­fee and fresh donuts.

Hap­pily we caught up with Jamie Smith from Mid­way Point when he rolled in for a re­fresh­ment break, driv­ing an eye catch­ing Bass Strait Re­movals 320 Hp 2002 Re­nault/Mack “Pre­mium” long bod­ied rigid pan.

He was on his way up to catch the TT Line Ferry then off to Ade­laide then Can­berra, Syd­ney and re­turn.

Jamie tells us he has been work­ing for them since they started out as a new com­pany in De­cem­ber last year, and that he is re­ally happy with the out­fit, the crew and the job.

“I had done re­movals for about six years pre­vi­ous, but had a spell do­ing other things, in fact I owned the bak­ery at Nubeena when the job came up and it seemed too good an op­por­tu­nity to miss,” Jamie said.

“A great job, lit­er­ally be­ing paid to travel, and some­thing I en­joy do­ing!”

Well he doesn’t ap­pear to get a lot of time home at Mid­way Point in be­tween main­land trips, but tells us he to­tally en­joys spend­ing any time he gets off with his fam­ily.
