I'm still trying to become an expert at sawing -- I think I'll leave the trucking to people that know what they're doing :D :D.

Lyle,
I see a RB sticker in the window. Must have been the recent Edmonton auction? Not enough wheels or axels to make it a coastal BC logging truck.

I'm thinking a Pacific. It is in the Toba valley. 50 Kms north of here. The Klahoose Band does the logging and Allterra Power is in there with two run of the river power houses. Third one is just being built. Where are you in Gibsons or Sechelt?

I've had more than one job now where it would have been nice to have an Anderson log trailer and loader to just haul the wood back to the home base and saw it where we are.  Not to mention going to buy the odd load of saw logs now and then. 
If I never saw another board I will at least die happy having spent the last few years working with my dad!

I took the old log truck on the maiden voyage today, the neighbour had a small load of spruce that he didn't want and said that I might as well saw it up before it goes bad. It was tricky running the picker and I was a little nervous
