As 2020 comes to an end, long-time interstate truckie John Furler will swap the truck cab for a caravan, signing off on a career that has taken him all over Australia.
“I’ll just keep going as long as I can. When I can’t do it anymore, that’s when it’s time to give up. A fella asked me a few years ago, ‘When are you going to retire?’ And I said I’ll retire when they start to dig the hole. My mother lived to 107 so I’ve got a bit to go to catch her age haven’t I,” said Bill Ferguson, who recently celebrated his 88th birthday.
