Peter Win­ters

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN’ IN THE TROPICS -

TRUCK­IES and car­a­van­ners of­ten crit­i­cise each other for their habits on the high­ways and by­ways.

Melbourne man Peter Win­ters is not sure which cat­e­gory he falls into af­ter pur­chas­ing an Isuzu 200 with a slide-on Win­nebago van.

“I only bought this re­cently and have done just 150km in it,” he said.

The 53-year-old Peter said he needed to make some re­pairs be­fore hit­ting Aus­tralia’s high­ways where he would de­ter­mine if he was a truckie or a car­a­van­ner.

“All the lights went out and it was some­thing to do with the fuses. Any­way I have to fix it,” he said.

Peter parked up at a North Queens­land road­house and the good news is that some nearby truck­ies yarned to him and of­fered some ad­vice.

In the com­ing months Peter ex­pects to meet many truck­ies and van driv­ers as he trav­els.
