Peter Han­naford

Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN WITH JON WALLIS -

“WELL we have been in Tas­ma­nia now for three years, and just go on lov­ing it more and more.”

Peter Han­naford, orig­i­nally from Gumer­acha in South Aus­tralia, but now in Hobart, told us when we shared a cuppa at the Cal­tex at Ep­ping For­est.

He was driv­ing a DeBruyn’s 2011 FM 450 Hp Volvo at the time tow­ing a Taut­liner and was on his way from Par­ra­matta Creek on his re­turn to Hobart hav­ing taken a load of fish up to Huon Aqua­cul­ture that morn­ing.

“I have been with DeBruyn’s for 18 months now, and they are a great fam­ily out­fit. Guess I am lov­ing the whole thing, the out­fit, the work and liv­ing and driv­ing in Tas­ma­nia,” he said.

“I moved down here three years ago, after 20 years driv­ing, mainly road trains all over on the Big Is­land and be­lieve me that’s not all as good as it may sound.

“I reckon we have a re­ally good life now in Hobart, and, with my wife to be, we have also got a rock and roll dance stu­dio up and run­ning called Jit­ter­bugz Dance Academy, and that pretty well takes care of all my spare time as well.”

We note that Peter is get­ting mar­ried on Jan­uary 13 at Snug, and we would like to join the ed­i­tor and all the crew at Big Rigs as well as the crowd at DeBruyn’s in wish­ing the happy cou­ple ev­ery good wish for their mar­riage and for a long and happy fu­ture to­gether.
