Greg Gouge

IT was an absolute pleasure to have a yarn to long-time truckie Greg Gouge when he was stopped at the BP Cluden on June 8.

Greg drives a Scania R420 for Richers Transport of Maryborough and loves the job.

"I have been a truckie for 32 years and am carrying timber for Bowen," Greg said.

When asked his age, Greg was at first coy about revealing it, but then changed his mind and said he was 56.

Greg doesn't have any major hobbies outside of his travels on the highways.

"I don't have any time for hobbies as I'm always at work. But I have do have a little two acre farm I like to be at," he said.

The worst highway Greg drives on is between Childers and Rockhampton.

As we yarned about the road transport industry Greg enjoyed a bite to eat beside the Scania which he described as a "wonderful truck" .
