YOUNG driver Jordon Deacon, pictured right, works for Ede Events of Townsville, delivering tents and party goods all around north Queensland.

The 23-year-old Jordan had delivered a tent and chairs to Gorden St in the Townsville suburb of Garbutt when Big Rigs saw him on April 26.

With him was an assistant, 19-year-old Brayden Hall, and their truck was a Mitsubishi light rig.

"We deliver all around Townsville but also get away to Ayr down south, west to Mount Isa and north to Cairns. It is a great truck which does the job well,” Jordon said.

When away fromt outside Townsville, Jordon likes stopping at the Calcium Roadhouse which is beside the Flinders Hwy heading towards Charters Towers.

The day Big Rigs spoke to Jordon it was hot in the tropics with the temperature around 30 degrees Celcius.

As a bonus, though, Jordon and Brayden got to watch indigenous entertainment groups Komet, Wulgurukaba Walkabouts and Clontarf Academy Kirwan.
