Leigh doesn't regret his decision

"TWENTY-FIVE year or so back, I decided to take up driving for a career, and in hindsight, I made the right choice, as I have never regretted that decision.”

Leigh Wrigley, from Perth, was driving a Tankworld 2014 240 Hp Hino and towing a tandem trailer when we saw him at Mood Food.

He was on his return leg from Bruny Island to Perth and then knock off time.

"It has been a long hot day, as there was an incredible wait for the new ferry at Kettering, where they are apparently still trying to get organised. I took rainwater tanks down and set them up at both Adventure Bay and also Alonnah, very interesting and attractive place,” he said.

"I've been here for five or six years now, and really enjoy both the variety of the job, and also they are a great bunch to work for and the Hino is an ideal truck for the job. A lot of our installations are out on farms, and that suits me fine as I grew up in the bush myself.”

We asked him about his time off: "Well I don't get a lot of that, but when I do it's all family orientated, after I finish with the maintenance, that is.”
