"WELL I'm the Hobart based driver with G&D Transport, and I reckon I am pretty happy with the job!” Ray Horsey, from Hobart said with a grin.

Ray ran into us when he dropped in for a cuppa and a bite to eat at Epping Forest.

He was driving the fleet's eye-catching G&D 2007 T-404 SAR with an ISX 500 up front and towing a scrap bin from Devonport back to Hobart at the time, while his regular trailer was being repaired.

"The truck has just notched up a million k's and she's a good hard-working rig,” he said.

"I've been with G&D Transport for seven good years now, with a total of 15 years all up on and off on the road.

"You get to see the state pretty well all over, and I love it out west, especially the northwest. Some great scenery up there.”

Time off, he told us, was spent fishing and shooting and spending as much time as possible with his young fellow.
