Andrew Woods

WHEN Big Rigs saw Andrew Woods in late January he was delivering road base to a remote area of the surrounded fortress of Palm Island in North Queensland.

Andrew was driving a golden oldie 1988 model Ford Louisville along a dirt road on Palm Island which is 48 nautical miles across the Coral Sea from Townsville.

He works for his brother's company Woods Truck Hire and was enjoying his time on Palm.

"I am picking up material from near the jetty and delivering it to an area where it is being stockpiled for the upgrade of a road up to the hill here. My brother purchased the truck from Caboolture and it goes really well and is suited to this work," he said.

The Louisville came over the ocean by barge from Lucinda past Ingham.
