    I'm gonna be honest here....... I have no pictures to add to this thread.

    But I really wanna get some pictures flowing in here cause I've been super interested in vintage logging and the men who did it. If they are your personal pictures I want you to tell the stories to go along with them.

    Ik @RandyMac has some good vintage logging pictures.... who else has some?

    Global warming proponents avoid info about sequoia growing in places that are now (several centuries later) cold. Did he say europe alaska and iceland??? before they became colder ? thank you for loading this onto the site (-;

    Apologies for the poor scans. This is the best I can do at work currently. They took our good scanner because of "security" and left us with an awful one. At any rate, these pics were taken on Ft Lewis WA, between 1964-1974, near as I can tell. Most are undated, and none have any notes as to exact location or personnel. If we ever get a better scanner, perhaps I can re-scan these and re-upload them.

    Yeah I'm just messing around. Some of those that get Humboldts I think man you're cutting twice the wood. But then again if it's the only way to save it.
