    Hi mate. Great stuff!! I am an old codger considering buying a prime mover and having a crack at driving for a living . I will be paying up front and own the truck outright. I really need a heap of advice on everything from
    How to get work for myself and the truck , type of truck to buy and what trailer and any companies that are worth checking out. I really have no idea of pay rates , how to structure the business or the technical side of things
    I am thinking of a taughtliner so I don’t have to climb on and off the trailer too muchdoing trapping and tie downs( a few injuries) but am pretty firfor my age.

    Any help with advice would be very very appreciated. Do yourself or anyone here have any ideas on how to get a decent Aussie mentor to help me through this #### haze of correct and ######## info?
    Many thanks crew
