Garry Raymond

WELL stopping by at the "under renovation, but business as usual" 24-hour Caltex Mood Food Truckstop and Roadhouse at Kempton the other day we were fortunate to catch up with Garry Raymond from Melbourne, when he dropped in driving his 2011 "Raytrade" Mitsubishi Canter Duonic rigid, conspicuously carrying explosives and hazardous goods.

He had come down from Melbourne on the toll ferry to Burnie and was on his way to Hobart and then deliveries in the environs.

He tells us he has now been 30 years in the business and he loves it, coming down twice a year to service his many Tasmanian customers, in fact he treats it rather as a holiday, and he really had nice things to say about his purpose-built and reliable rig.

Ray tells us he will be going overseas for Christmas, but would like to join us at Big Rigs in wishing all and sundry a great Christmas and a safe and productive New Year.
