From Perth I went south to Katanning where the famous ‘Yogi’ from Outback Truckers lives. I spent a few days with his family, experiencing a totally different type of trucking. Even the kids had their part to play in the running of this business. Helping Yogi clean and maintain the truck and putting the oversize signs up when leaving to cart a large piece of farm machinery.
Wife Amanda drives the pilot vehicle for these trips. I even managed to score a backload with Yogi back to the city. So my car had a ride on the famous purple truck while me and Barney got to ride up front. It was a very early start thought- 3am to be in the city by 7am so he could load yet another piece of farm machinery worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and deliver it to the customer.
