John Davey

THE new truck parking area designated behind Mood Food, the only 24 hour truck stop in Tasmania situated at the rear of the popular Kempton road house, is proving extremely popular.

We caught up with John Davey, AKA Big John from Devonport, there the other day with his 2010 Chas Kelly T-408 SAR with a 525 Westport LNG motor up-front and towing a fridge pan from Hobart up to Devonport to catch the TT Line ferry Spirit of Tasmania.

John tells us he has been back working for Chas Kelly for two years and it is just so good being back with the old firm.
