Good Afternoon Majid. Always nice to see you and hear about your life.If your son was her, I could probully arrange for him to go out for the day in one of these truck,as I did for young fellow a while back. WE will live and see what happens one day.Your friend in Australia,David :-)

Thank you very much. When I was a little child (Now I am 36) I ride on a truck for the first time. I remeber that the world was seem something else unlike the cars...

Hello Majid. When I mentioned that if you or your son was here, I might be able to arrange something just like this young lad when he was staying with us a while back. But in anyway if we can't always do something we can always look and Imagine what it might be like.I have been in one of these trucks and I am over 50 and I can say, its real fun as you are up so high and the cars on the road usaully get well out of the way when they see you coming.Plenty of power, empty or loaded.Best Regards,David

Hi David , like you i am over 50, and I can remember with joy my youth when I used to drive my Grandad's tractor. I have never ridden in the cab of a large truck though. Do the road trains still exist in Australia? I seem to remember an old movie about a roadtrain, but I can't remember the title. Regards from England Geoff

Hello Dear Conquilha. These trucks are everywhere now in most part of Australia, but not in the citys though, not roadtrains, but still big ones though.I am so pleased you were able to see these trucks on TV and anything about Australia.There is so many diferent things about Australia, and the land can change very quickly when driving along. Inland and in some northern parts of Australia, the soil is red. Yes it really is and when the wet season comes, everything comes to life. I mean flowers start to bloom grasses grow quickly and birdlife appears from no where so to speak. Best Wishes to you,David
