Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN’ WITH JON WALLIS -

“WELL I’m the Ho­bart based driver with G&D Trans­port, and I reckon I am pretty happy with the job!” Ray Horsey, from Ho­bart said with a grin.

Ray ran into us when he dropped in for a cuppa and a bite to eat at Ep­ping For­est.

He was driv­ing the fleet’s eye-catch­ing G&D 2007 T-404 SAR with an ISX 500 up front and tow­ing a scrap bin from Devon­port back to Ho­bart at the time, while his reg­u­lar trailer was be­ing re­paired.

“The truck has just notched up a mil­lion k’s and she’s a good hard-work­ing rig,” he said.

“I’ve been with G&D Trans­port for seven good years now, with a to­tal of 15 years all up on and off on the road.

“You get to see the state pretty well all over, and I love it out west, es­pe­cially the north­west. Some great scenery up there.”

Time off, he told us, was spent fish­ing and shoot­ing and spend­ing as much time as pos­si­ble with his young fel­low.
