Life Below Zero
« on: November 13, 2013, 06:34:49 PM »
Thought I saw my mill on TV last night!

Watching "Life Below Zero" last night, the guy (can't remember his name), but it was the guy who live near Eagle, Alaska was taking his Wood-Mizer LT40HDG24 home!

I was thinking "that mill is going in the drink" before he gets it home!

But, he made it with narry a hiccup!

Even showed him milling some lumber with it!

All in all, it was neat to see!

A buddy of mine would sure like to have an LT40.  I told him if he gets one, he has to let me play with it.

Warbird, have your buddy keep in close contact with the Wood-Mizer dealer in Anchorage, If they sell a new mill, they may have a used one (trade-in) in stock!

I saw that show a couple weeks ago when that guy was dragging his LT40HD home through the snow. I had to wonder how it was going to work north of the Arctic circle. I have to wonder how any of those people work up there. Cold. No electricity. No running water. No way you would find me up there.

It's really nice in the summer, if you don't mind mosquitoes!  They wear flight goggles and fly in formation up there!  I took a backpack to Alaska in 77.  Had a snowball fight in my shorts, in Denali Park, in August.  Wandered through tidal pools in the Kenai and it was in the 90s that day.  Watched the sun dip behind the tree line and come back up on summer solstice.  Was ready to get out of there by the end of August.  Winter is long, dark and cold.
