Jacob Hyland

STOPPING by at the Caltex 24-hour Roadhouse and Truckstop the other day, we were happy to catch up with Jacob Hyland from Launceston and his offsider Jake Doyer, also from Launceston, when the two of them stopped off for a quick cuppa.

They were driving a Chris Watkins Furniture Transport's 2005 Isuzu FVD 950 with a box on the back, and were on a return leg from Hobart to Launceston.

Jacob tells us he has been with Chris Watkins now for 12 months and he finds them a great outfit all round, and Chris is a good boss.

Jake has been with Chris for six months now and said he is loving the job.

Jacob spends every moment he can outdoors, shooting and fishing, and Jake says yes to all the above, plus bike riding.

Both men would like to take this opportunity to wish all their mates a great Christmas.
