“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?
