You know you're a logger
« on: February 06, 2013, 07:58:53 PM »
Was putting a bunch of skidder parts in my pick-up heading for home when the thought hit me "You know you're a logger when the skidder parts you just put in the back of you're pick-up are worth more than the pick-up!"  got a chuckle out of it....guess I amuse myself

You know you're a logger when something like that tickles you.
It makes most other folks cry.  :D

When you open your wallet to pay for coffee and theres saw chips in it.  Stuffs like sand, gets everywhere. 
When you wife says she can smell two cycle exhaust in your hair AFTER you shower. :D

When you carry so many extra parts, extra saws, fuel/oil cans, and associated gear in the pickup bed that you can't see the floor OF the pickup bed. ;)

This is so me! Glad someone is like me!

Now this is truer than true :D. The life of a man who truly enjoys what he does, and doesn't care about a fancy car or big house, but a nice skidder and lots of big work toys!

Now that is funny! The other day my wife wouldn't hug me and she told me to take a shower because I smelled like a chainsaw.  :D

When you stop at the local pub after work and the women want to smell you, because you smell so good.  ;D  And then guys stopping wanting their chainsaws sharpened or go for a ride to see whats wrong with their skidder or help fix a tire and ect.
Third generation logger, owner operator, 30 yrs felling experience with pole skidder. I got my neck broke back in 89, left me a quad. The wife kept the job going up to 96.

When your wife freaks because you bought  a pallet of cases of bar and chain oil because it was on sale, but you know the more your using the more money your making.  (It was a good price, I swear)  8)

When you refuse to go to wal-mart, but go to a scrapyard or dump to look for useable parts ;D

When you think hauling wood around from place to place and watching the log pile grow is the most pleasurable down time in the world.

You get home and think you have some food stuck in your teeth. You get it out and it's sawdust.

You know you're a logger when you get home in the evening and you're sore, tired, hungry, covered with sawdust and happy all at the same time.  smiley_thumbsup
