Mt Gambier locals Andrew Sheffield and his daughter Charlotte joined in the convoy in a Merrett Logging Kenworth T909.
Andrew, who has been with Merrett Logging for the past two years, is a good mate of convoy organiser Adam Smith.
“I’m here to support Adam and the cause. I believe what he is doing is terrific.
“It also gives me a good reason to polish my truck up.”
Andrew says he’s been moving between interstate and logging side of things.
Although hauling logs means long hours behind the wheel, it’s also local, which has him home every night.
“We have to do a lot of hours but it’s just part of the industry,” he says.
