Gary Sargeant

Big Rigs - - BIG RIGS | TRUCKIN’ IN THE TROPICS -

GARY Sargeant was with his part­ner Cora in a Ken­worth 200 B-dou­ble ready to de­liver fruit and veg­eta­bles from Bris­bane.

They were parked at the BP Clu­den on Townsville’s out­skirts and were ready to head out west along the Flin­ders Hwy.

“I will be drop­ping this lot off be­tween Hugh­en­den and Rich­mond and then will have a back­load of pro­duce from the Bur­dekin for south­ern Queens­land,” Gary said.

The 48-year-old has been driv­ing since he was 18 and loves the job.

When asked what was the worst road he gets along, Gary thought about it.

“I sneak up here along the back roads but I would have to say that the road from Mo­ran­bah to Black­wa­ter is very rough,” he said.

Gary likes stop­ping off at the Bohle Puma when in Townsville.

“The meals are cheap and tasty and they have good show­ers and shade,” he said.

Gary said he didn’t have much time for hob­bies when off work but did bar­rack for the Cow­boys dur­ing the NRL sea­son.

His new year’s res­o­lu­tion was to quit smok­ing, although he wasn’t con­fi­dent of be­ing suc­cess­ful.
