IT WAS good to catch up with Michael James Piper, from Brighton, when he drove into the Caltex at Epping Forest the other day in a 'horticultural supplies' 2011 Fuso 455Hp Inomat II and towing a super dog trailer.
He was currently on his return to Brighton with a load of cow manure from up north to be turned into potting mix.
The potting mix in turn is delivered all over Tasmania and also the mainland, and Michael is thoroughly enjoying the job, and getting to see Tasmania at the same time.
He originally came from Morawa in Western Australia, has been working on the Apple Isle for two years now and is loving it.
He is also hoping to have his family from WA come down to join him here in the future.
