Andrew's favourite stop is Hay's Shell Roadhouse

YOUNG truckie Andrew Murray had his eight year old son Kurtis with him when I met up with them in late December.

Aged 31, Andrew was driving a Mack Superliner for Bett's Transport of Walcha and was hauling cattle from Guyra to KIllara.

"I love the job and have been driving trucks since I was 20,” he said.

Andrew likes stopping at the Shell Roadhouse at Hay when in the area and reckons there generally is enough rest areas for truckies.

"Over the holiday break some drivers were complaining about having not enough space to pull up at rest areas but I don't whinge much,” he said.

Based at Tamworth which he said was a "lovely town”, Andrew had a new year's resolution which many others would also nominate.

"I wouldn't mind winning lotto,” he said.

Friendly Andrew was kind enough to recommend a Tamworth motel to me and said he had recently been driving as far away as the Atherton Tablelands in North Queensland.
