14th May Truckshow Day 2

Goodaye all, I was lucky enough to get an invite to the Transport Women Australia Limited (TWAL) breakfast, so in early and both a yoghurt /fruit then a hot breakfast set me up for the day. As with yesterday the speaker was intuitive, informative and entertaining. I did the rounds checking out stands, spoke with a couple more new members, enlisted a couple more during the day and got some photos.

The old and the older.

A beautifully restored Candy Apple Superliner and then the Mack H67 from a long time ago.

It is certainly a pity some of the big players pulled out of the show, many reasons may have been the factors, but the show must go on and has done well, with a crowd outside the main door this morning waiting for entry. The organisers have been happy with the turn out so far when I asked on the way out this evening. Thank you very much to ICEPACK Services for the invite to their evening get together just over the road. A terrific crew who have been TIV supporters for many years.

Old and new and new and newer.

The new SAR “Son of Nugget” on the Kenworth stand, then a beautifully restored W model with an original SAR in the background.

Expecting a big day tomorrow and enjoying speaking with friends and colleagues. My most interesting moment came when a driver asked was I Rod Hannifey and then went on to say I had saved his mates life recently. I asked how and his mate had been driving and without any suitable spots to park had got to the point of being very tired and needing to stop and came upon the green reflectors and was able to pull off the road safely and get some sleep. Those are the things that make my efforts worthwhile. Safe Travelling, Rod Hannifey.
