John Blayden

JOHN Blayden was hauling military equipment from Albury to the giant Lavarack Barracks Army base in Townsville when Big Rigs saw him on June 28.

The 53-year-old John drives a Kenworth K200 for Hunt Transport and has been a truckie for 12 years.

"Before becoming a truck driver I was in the Navy and worked all over the world including the Middle East," he said.

Cessnock-based John loves the job and also gets to regularly haul military freight from around Australia to the Darwin Army Barracks.

"We supply Army bases and I have seen a lot of the country," he said.

His favourite stop off is the Kynuna Roadhouse, located between Cloncurry and Winton.

"It is a great bush atmosphere and the food is good and the showers clean," he said.

Many truckies pop into the Kynuna Roadhouse for a bite to eat and a chat.

When not working, John enjoys riding motorbikes in the Hunter Valley region of NSW.
