Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN’ -

“IT’S been a great day for the drive,” driver Nathan Jones from Launce­s­ton told Big Rigs with a smile.

“Re­ally I am al­most do­ing the tourist route from Launce­s­ton to Scottsdale then across to the East Coast and to Ep­ping via the Fin­gal Val­ley, with drops all along the way, and from here home to Launce­s­ton,” he ex­plained.

He was driv­ing a Tas­fresh 2015 Hino 500 1426 fridge pan at the time and dropped in to the Cal­tex at Ep­ping for a quick bite to eat and a cuppa.

“I’ve been on the road all up for five years now, and here for the two last and very good years, and I reckon I’ve got a top job,” he said.

“Great out­fit, and I love the Hino, it’s just per­fect for this run.”

Nathan said with all the va­ri­ety, the trip is never bor­ing.

“It’s al­ways in­ter­est­ing, lots of in­ter­ac­tion with good peo­ple and get­ting to drive on some great scenic roads, es­pe­cially on the East Coast! It doesn’t get much bet­ter than that,” he said.

He told Big Rigs he uses his time off by keep­ing busy as a stay-at-home dad.

With a work-life bal­ance like that, who would have it any other way?
