Another big week on the road, new drive tyres and a couple of positive comments from drivers. One asking about my TRUCKRIGHT videos, aimed at explaining the aims of TRUCKRIGHT and another after a good discussion from Narrabri to south of Coonabarabran thanking me for the chat. Yet another thanked me for my column in Owner Driver magazine, saying he enjoyed reading it and I told him this is my 16th year, having only missed one column in that time, due to pneumonia. I gave out a number of copies of Owner Driver to customers along the road and some new ones made comments on the truck, one saying, it was the best looking rig he had ever had, come in to load there.
I was offered the chance to write a column after winning the National Professional Driver of the Year in 2001 and have been involved with road safety since 1999. I hope you have seen the video on the NRMA Facebook page, “We share a 10 hour drive”. At my last look it had well over 800,000 views on that page alone and the vast majority of the comments were positive. Let me know what you think.
I am currently trying to line up a few caravanners for a shoot for a television show pilot in a couple of weeks and have just reviewed my weeks audiobooks on the Facebook page, Audiobooks for the road. Safe Travelling, Rod Hannifey.
