Tassie truckie living the dream with great scenery and boss

Enjoying views that many drivers would be envious of and working for a great company are two of the main reasons that Lee Hendley loves his job.

That is not surprising as when I saw Hendley about 4pm, he was delivering ice to a business near Beauty Point in northern Tasmania.

In the background when I snapped his pic unloading from the back of his light rig was a scenic view of the mighty Tamar River.

The 47-year-old is employed by Mountain Dew Ice based at Port Sorell in northern Tassie and delivers frozen goods and ice around one of the most beautiful regions of our vast country.

He was driving a refrigerated Iveco and said he was so happy in the job.

“I get to places like St Helens and Scamander on the east coast and also Beauty Point here beside the Tamar. Each day I get great views,” he said.

St Helens and Scamander are also beside the water and also are very scenic towns.

A truckie for the past four years Hendley said he doesn’t have any preferred hobbies and he lives at Latrobe, just off the Bass Highway.

It was very chilly when I saw Hendley and despite the generally cold weather in the Apple Isle, ice is in big demand.

Most people like a cold beer or soft drink and Hendley delivers lots of it.

What better way to enjoy a cold amber fluid in a cold climate sitting beside a fire.
