Tassie Truckin': Des Merier and Sean Hinds

IT HAD been 25 years since Des Meier, from Karuah in New South Wales, last caught up with his old friend Sean Hinds, from Launceston.

Sean, who is a dedicated Mack man, is always busy either restoring his 1985 Superliner 400 Hp tipper, or doing stuff with Boral.

This reunion between the big "Eggs and Bacon” tipper driver and Sean, from the "Green and Gold” outfit, for us all of Sean's mainland sojourn many years ago.

When he was touring the Big Island with various obliging friends, from Harry Stamoulis in car carriers to Brisbane and trips Westward with Agro, to Roxby Downs with Garry from Chugalong Transport and Michael Papametis to Brisbane and spending quality time with Des (and Rex) at the Wingfield BP.

Well 25 years later and it was a great afternoon talking about trucks and stuff at the Seaport in Launceston.
