Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN’ WITH JON WALLIS -

“I HAVE been with this crowd for 10 years now in Septem­ber and I reckon it’s still one great job!” Barry Jones ex­plained.

“You are spoiled for va­ri­ety, al­ways some­where dif­fer­ent with in­ter­est­ing cus­tomers all over the state, out on farms, build­ing sites, city res­i­dences, it keeps me in­volved and also gives me a great feel­ing of job sat­is­fac­tion.”

We met Barry, from Launceston, when we caught up for a cuppa and re­fresh­ment break at the Cal­tex at Ep­ping For­est.

He was driv­ing his fa­mil­iar “Tankworld” 2015 Hino 112 Euro 5, and tow­ing a tan­dem trailer, and he was on his re­turn leg to Launceston af­ter drops around the Ho­bart area.

“I be­gan driv­ing trucks for Co­ma­lco,” he added.

“But this is such a good job, es­pe­cially in good weather, all out in the open air, and the Hino is ideal and a plea­sure to drive.”

In his free time, Barry spends time with the fam­ily and gen­er­ally get­ting a rest.
