Donald Coulson

PASSING by Mood Food, the 24-hour truck stop at Kempton the other day, we were happy to catch up with Donald Coulson from Sheffield when he rolled in driving his 1997 650 Isuzu Tautliner with a full load of furniture.

He was on his way from Hobart to Sheffield then on to Ulverstone, Penguin and then Burnie.

Donald told us he had started out in business moving furniture 3½ years ago, and said that so far he is loving it all, from the hard physical labour to being his own boss. He told us he travels state-wide and he enjoys the endless variety and the good people you meet along the way.

He also finds Mood Food a great place to stop for a cuppa, especially with its 24-hour service and great food and coffee. On the day his camera shy mate Ron, was off-siding him, the weather was perfect and he reckoned life was pretty good.
