Run­ners re­union catch-up

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

IN­TER­STATE truck driver Moe Byard loves to catch up with mates from the good ol’ days.

He said the last great catch up he had with his mates was at The Pa­cific High­way Run­ners Re­union in Grafton a cou­ple of years ago.

He said he loved it, just for the chance to see what ev­ery­one was up to.

And it’s also for that rea­son that he’s look­ing for­ward to the next re­union, com­ing up next week on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 17.

Moe grew up around trucks, his dad was a truck driver too, and he said mate­ship was one of the things that had changed in the time he started driv­ing.

“There’s no mate­ship any­more,” he said.

Grafton Truck Driv­ers So­cial Club pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer Bec Ja­cobs said that the re­union was great for truck driv­ers to catch up and meet peo­ple who they might talk to on the road but haven’t ac­tu­ally met be­fore.

“There are a lot of re­tired driv­ers out there so it’s nice for them to be able to catch up with peo­ple they may have worked or trav­elled with on the road as well,” she said.
