PASSING by the 24-hour Caltex Truckstop and roadhouse at Kempton the other day, we ran into our old mate Paul Armstrong from Longford.
He rolled in driving Ken Padgett's newly acquired 2008 500Hp FH 16 Euro 4 Volvo and towing a triaxle trailer and side loader on his way from Geeveston to Longford.
They had only just picked up the truck a few days previous and Paul told us that so far he was loving it, very comfortable and perfect for the job.
He has been driving for Ken for six years now and said he still believes it to be a great job, with a lot of variety, and keeping him busy. And that means happy.
Weekends he tells us are spent doing "family stuff", with hunting whenever he can get out there for a bit.
