Nice load of logs
« on: October 30, 2008, 02:06:14 AM »
Bit of a hold up on the road tonight coming home.

These guys normally haul pine logs, so this load of Cypress must have been a bit heavier than normal, he was down to about 60kph on a gentle uphill.

Wish he was going to drop them at my place  ;)

Your cypress ain't the same as our cypress, which would be lighter than pine.  What species is it, specifically?

Diesel is about NZ$1:70 litre here. Pretty pricy and thats hurting the truckers. Other side of the world - other side of the road, makes sense  ;) :D

The wood is Monterey cypress (Cupresses macrocarpa) while the local pine is plantation radiata. The pine never gets old enough to even form heartwood.  I think Cypress is quite a bit denser, especially when green.

Normally logging trucks dont hold up traffic except on steep hills, so this guy was hauling a decent load. I saw him hauling up this hill even slower another day, he was fully loaded with ONE log  :o . Didn't have my camera that do though.  ::)
