IT WAS nice to catch up with Matt Bounday from Launceston the other day when he wheeled into Kempton.
Matt was driving a Les Walkden 2008 CH Mack with a triaxle chip bin on the back, and was on his return journey from South Woods near Geeveston to Bell Bay.
He tells us he has been with Les Walkden now for 12 months and he said they look after their drivers well, run really good gear, and it is a great job.
Matt has been six years all up on the road, previously doing general freight, but he enjoys the work with Forestry because of the variety, and that he carries other things from wood chips to saw dust and mulch.
Time off is mainly enjoyed camping and fishing and anything outdoors.
