Tassie Truckin': Nathan Jones

"It's been a great day for the drive,” Nathan Jones from Launceston told us the other day.

"Really 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 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!

"Great outfit, and I love the Hino, it's just perfect for this job.

"And 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!”

Time off he told us keeps him busy being a "stay at home Dad”, and he wouldn't have it any other way!
