CALLING in at the Caltex at Epping Forest recently for a cuppa and a bite to eat, we were happy to catch up with Alex French, from Devonport, when he rolled in driving a SeaRoad 2005 FH-16 Volvo and towing a drop deck tri-axle fridge pan.
He was on his return leg from Hobart back to Devonport and then to knock off for the weekend at the time, and he told us: “Well I’ve been here for 18 months now, and am loving it!
“Apart from being a good job, they are a great crowd to work with and it’s regular work and busy enough to keep us happy.
“I’ve been on the road driving now for four years and have no regrets, it’s the job I always wanted.
“I previously looked for jobs working as a yardie, anything that kept me around and with trucks!”
In his time off, he tells us, he likes to go camping and being outdoors with the boys.
