    Looking forward to the next episode of AxMen (I know, hard to believe right?). Siderius will finally be shown, and it's a local crew.

    I logged with Josh Fite, his dad was my boss, and Josh hooked in the rigging. He liked to talk a lot, which they make a point of on AxMen. I just hope he doesn't come across as a HUGE ass, I get tired of that show making loggers look like crap.

    I never really remember his mouth causing problems, it was usually just some fun back-and-forth, and really made the day go faster. Just some joking and ribbing, and of course, working. I do remember him being pretty cocky. . . I don't care for cocky people as a whole. He was the youngest on the crew, but talked a big game.

    His dad was the boss, and also ran the yarder -- so it made me "LOL" when I saw that Josh had followed suit, and also turned into a cab-rat.

    If I saw right on the preview, they use radios to run, and no Talkie-Tooters. . . That's all we used when working -- I wouldn't be able to tell you how the hell a tooter signal works. I have a basic understanding, but don't know the "code".

    When Big Gun's tooters went on the fritz, I yelled at the TV, "Use your damn radios!" Hahahaha

    I think both systems are good, but a crew should be more well rounded, to segue between either with no effort. Tooters go down, use radios.

    I've never seen Axemen on account rabbit ears don't work up here, but I see it's available through netflix. Is it worth renting or just annoying? Any certain season particularly good?

    Yessir, you'd be correct :biggrin:

    Well, you know, let's examine the Shelby/Haywire Gulch juxtaposition :hmm3grin2orange::hmm3grin2orange:

    No Shoes
    Carrying a heater in your cutoffs and firing it at random times
    driving to town in a tractor

    I wondered about that Haywire Gulch thing...now you guys have answered my question. I sent Roma some stuff awhile back and the Post Office wanted extra money just to deliver it to that area...said it was for the armed guard or something like that.:laugh:

    No, no Bob. . . The extra money was to pay for the horse feed. . . The only way into Haywire Gulch is still Stagecoach. :laugh:

    I"ll have to give them a look-see. Saw some nice timber for the inland NW.

    Looks like a big ol' seed tree cut.

    That one dude looked like he was pounding wedges with a sissy-assed hatchet. WTF? Get an axe and be done with it, lol.

    Looking forward to seeing these guys. Should be pretty similar to the country I work in.

    Well, it could have been worse.

    Josh seemed about like Josh -- and the crew didn't seem like huge douche bags. A lot of the "action" shots we done up in editing.

    That barberchair almost seemed like it was on purpose. That tree was leaning down grade pretty hard, and his face was microscopic.

    I'd like to run into him in town and ask if it was just for TV.

    We'll see if it gets worse as each episode comes out. . . Again, I think the producers can make situations worse, and setup things in editing, that paint a bad light that was never there.

    As you guys saw though, no tooters, just radios. . . It is an effective way to yard, and I actually prefer it to any type of Morse Code.

    Oh, and the "Dave Roberts" comments toward Josh on the landing were hilarious! Dave is Josh's dad and my old boss, and a real #######. Hence the, "We didn't know Dave Roberts was in the yarder?" stuff. LOL He was so bad, that the family kicked him out of the family business, and he had to go it alone.
