i stayed up to catch it on the 12 to 1 rerun. i was gone getting groceries with the family when it aired the first time.
ol bobby was really getting the short fuse with the landowner saying they could trim their trucks here and then want ing the wood pile cleaned up.  that is just exactly the way i got pushed around when i grew chickens on contract. one company rep(who knew nothing) would come out and tell you to do one thing and then someone else call or come by telling you to do something different. really gets under your skin after a while. looks to me like the way to do it would have been when there wasnt a truck there and the skidder came in with a load he could grab some sticks to take back to the brush. easy to say from here but maybe more tough to do.

Chains are a rarity in the south. Even most skidders don't bother with the hassle.

Chains here are a necessity almost year round on trucks and skidders. I wonder if the air pressure adjustment they use down there keeps them from throwing chains? Or they might just be typical truck drivers and don't want to get out of the cab ;)
