Send him here Mike.  There is no help to hire, and nobody wants to work.  Have one employee who came to me last year - needed a job, put him on full time, two weeks ago he tells me he can only work 4 hours a day, three days a week, can't handle any more.  New hire that I had for a week sends me a text at 3:00 yesterday afternoon - "Sorry, not ready to go back to work yet"  - only been unemployed for a year, bought a house right before the stuff started.  How do you survive that way?  Just what govt program keeps you going to where you can just walk away from work?  

Spent the past three days running two machines by myself that usually have three people running them as a team.  All the while customers call up wanting to know "where is my stuff?"  One guy tried to pull the "I am normally an easy going guy" thing - stopped him in his tracks, told him he could have his deposit back, come to work for me, or sit and wait.  He chose option three.

I have no idea how theyre doin it. When i couldnt pay i lost my house and so did my wife.  No one gave a spit what hardships caused it.  Youre a month late, we want the full balance now.  

Once bitten twice shy.  09 was just a dry run.  This bubble is the real deal coming up.  Im trying to set the kids up so that a lack of paper money doesnt slow them down.  Paper isnt diggin this swimmin pool hole right now kiddo.  Old junk iron and diesel fuel is.

Been trying to post pics off of an Apple computer, thought I would try a windows machine... just a bunch that I've been cutting on a while now, more red oak and hickory than anything else really.

Barge Annie is a much better dispatcher then whoever is up to Hancock they can't there stuff together straight chaos hahah.

We just finished job we're on 380k ft and at least 25 loads firewood with 4700 ft of slash wall built in 17 days. Straight up hammering didn't want to drive that far that long.

Every morning when I get up I make sure to stretch, I grab my ankles and wonder what the day has planned for me.... 🤷‍♂️😆.

Glad you got her fixed up. Looked good when I rolled out in the afternoon. Glad I could help with the blocking, hoped that worked out OK. Seems like you got a good wrench man there. The landing is shaping up well but I am still curious to see how you cut around all those cars, trucks, implements, trailers, and other stuff.  :D ;D

Is that the Cornell slashwall idea.  That's a good bit of production!  Interesting trucking situation going on, that's quite a bit of trucking, are they self loaders or is someone manning a loader?

We trucked hw sawlogs center mount and regular log trailer and 3axle flatbed trailers for the pine. I was loading the trailers with the forwarder. We have 2 forwarders so wood was always moving once they were done cutting.

Yes cornell slash wall deal the guy who started it out there was on our job 2 days ago. Pretty interesting project it does look nice with all the slash picked up.

Finished trimming up spruce and fir from winter blowdown and a little from road building. Headed to the yard this week. Only 3-4 mbf this year. Better than last year's 20+ mbf.

Around 180k pine I think. All went to maine. Hardwood is climbing around here but we cut this job for a hw mill so straight through per mbf.

Or a better question will be how many bars does he go through the first week.

Itís different going from a fixed head to a dangle if got a pile of bars to prove that.
