We get make as many long logs as we can but the mill it's going to (not sure where somewhere in canada) pays us straight through. They just dont like 10s but they still buy them.

Ya it's beautiful stuff. I chop and the guy I work for runs skidder and we've been getting around 2.5 self loader loads a day. Short hauling so those are freighted loads. Really easy to make production in this stuff cut 9 trees the other day and made 2 loads.

A few of the stands on the chopping block for the summer.

Picture 1) White spruce plantation to be commercially thinned. Stand has been herbicided and PCT'd in the past.
Picture 2) Natural black spruce stand in a poor growing area. Shallow/wet soils.
Picture 3) Balsam fir stand which had been PCT'd and commercially thinned.

 Quickest way to lower your IQ is to cut wood without a slasher, not to bad running this skidder behind a Timbco but this blows. 😂🤮

Finally got her fixed yesterday, buttoned up today and in the woods at dark.


 


  One of our customers is a welder in NYC, straight off the boat irishman, July 4th at 7am rod was burning, my loader now has some plate in the boom from 20th street in Manhattan, has to be worth more now 😂


 
Weather has been good and its nuts between hay and trucking.


 
 

 700 today, get about 6k in that barn right to the roof.


  I'm going to have my CDL changed to "log truck only".
I did text a few of you the picture of the 2 females waiting for me last night, I cant post the rest of the pictures here 😂


 

  Its like Disney but for loggers over 30 😂

Geez Barge,
That looks like a joint from a Bridge support or something; won't they miss that?

 No not quite like that, 😂 This arrangement has been on / off since high school, the ones husband talks like he wants to kick my @ss, I've told him where I'm working but he is kind of pretty and doesnt look like the type to get hit in the mouth. The last one said how I work too much, how her life goals and mine where diff, it happens.

Finally back to putting wood out. Was soaked after the 4th drag today. Booms fixed and the self propel on my loader is working again, wanted to get all my new lights out on right but just didnt have enough time at the shop.

There actually was a pilfered hunk of bridge and a dude from ireland.  He called me lad, even though i was riding in the middle of the bench seat reserved for lasses.

Started cutting some pine saw logs. Way different than my normal diet of Balsam Fir and fire wood. First tree got me a load and then some.



 



 



 

Those are 12'ers on an 8' bed plus 2' of tail gate so it's not as bad as it might look but I don't think a DOT guy would buy that. Good thing it is all quiet dirt town roads except the last mile, where there is no traffic and going slow won't bother any one, to the log yard. 800 BF

Been doing something else mornings, head to the woods at 1-2 and go till dark. 
 

 
 Pull 20ft of cable, hook 6-8 and go, woodpile grows. 
 I sent my employee back to weaving baskets / collecting shopping carts, good help is hard to find. 😂 Still get 4ld of good wood + firewood alone, keep the money in my pocket for my iron fund. 


  Theres 4300 international there, not bad for what it is. Cut those lengths so they go in the container just as they are. 
 I'm sure I'm not the only one here knocking hay down. 


 
 One of the blondes stopped over before I got home, tied the dog out. Here even the woodchucks are dangerous 😂 Woodchuck is around the 100lb shepard's neck determined he isnt going out with a fight, she has to grab a piece of wood out of the woodpile and club the woodchuck, dog eventually got him, I've lost faith in the dog 😂

That's why you need a dog like this, Barge! "Badgers! Badgers! We don't need no stinking Badgers!"


I (or my dogs) don't need to shave....

I had a dog named Flash that was deadly on them things. They weren't safe in their hole, he dug them out if it took all day. Ring it's neck, a toss in the air and that was that. :D

We have a new pitbull rescue named bella, young dog.  Will not stay out of the frog pond [puddle really] until she gets every last one.  Theres an impenetrable thorn bush they hide in that she punches holes right thru without a yelp or flinch.  The prey drive just turns her pain receptors off.
