MUCH travelled truckie Phil Emerson

MUCH travelled truckie Phil Emerson said he has been the youngest driver at every company he has worked for.

The 30-year-old drives a Kenworth T950 for Doug and Janelle Johnston Transport and we met him on January 22 at the BP Gold City Roadhouse on the outskirts of Charters Towers.

Based at Tolga on the scenic Atherton Tablelands, he carries general to and from Brisbane.

"I generally travel down past Mt Garnet and then along the Gregory Development Highway to Charters Towers," he said.

Phil described the Kenworth, which is powered by a C-15 550hp motor, as beautiful to drive.
