I marked 40 years, but I can't really remember a winter that I didn't get to follow my dad & brother around in the bush, they mostly cut 4' softwood pulp & firewood with horses. I'll never forget falling off the back of the sleigh & waking up in the back seat of the car just as we were getting home, we'd (yes ok, they) were working at our 2nd farm at the time, so after I fell, my brother would have had to unhitch the horses and put them away, then drive home, about 15 minutes, so must have been out a while. Was put on the couch to "recuperate". 

 My grandfather in the 1910's,  father and uncle in late 40's and early 50's, all went to northern Ontario bush camps in the winter, so there were always stories growing up, my uncle wrote a book about it.

Now it's just a bit of firewood and the odd load of poplar to the local rayon mill and whatelogs we need to have sawn for our own use, how times have changed.
