John Chatwin

Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN’ -

“WELL I reckon I am happy enough”, John Chatwin from Burnie told us the other day.

“Af­ter 20 months here I can hon­estly say they are a great out­fit to work for, and they are keep­ing us flat out, which is great for this time of the year!”

He had rolled into the Cal­tex at Ep­ping For­est and was driv­ing a Svelto Lo­gis­tics FE 320 Volvo rigid plus a trailer and was on his re­turn home af­ter tak­ing a load of Poly Pipe coils from Wyn­yard to a fish farm at Port Huon.

He ex­pected to do the same again on the fol­low­ing Mon­day.

He told us: “Prior to this job I was out log­ging in the forests, but af­ter 20 months here now, I am re­ally en­joy­ing run­ning up and down the High­way, and es­pe­cially in beau­ti­ful weather like this.

“No, I haven’t any re­grets and I’d have to say it’s the best move I ever made, this job takes me all over the state and there is just so much beauty out there that you see so well from a trucks cabin!”

Asked about time off he added: “Well I am a sports trainer with the Burnie Dock­ers Foot­ball Club, and we haven’t lost a game so far this year, and when I’m not out there I like to catch up with some rest, and spend as much time as pos­si­ble with the fam­ily.”
