    That makes a huge difference a truck mount loader has much easier life then say our shovels out here especially since we shovel log with them.

    Everyone here has been welcoming and I am very grateful. Characterizing myself as a trespasser is my way of acknowledging that I have little to add and appreciate that you haven't run me off. Ron

    This is true. It's still remarkable how well these guys treat their equipment. They have both just finished their 56th year as full time self-employed loggers.

    When the snow gets over 4 feet deep most guys stop for the season (usually around February depending on the location). The woods usually is dry enough to get back at it in June.

    It is beautiful, but it is expensive. Lots of the Rich and Clueless have discovered it.

    I'd love to get to your neck of the woods to do some chainsaw work. To see if I can run with those dogs or not.

    I went to school in very northern coastal California so I am familiar with PNW territory. CA wasn't for me, but that part of the state was beautiful too.
