Yup -- though in all fairness they were trying to stack and sticker when not off-bearing and the customer didn't seem to appreciate the importance of having a crew that could be on time, worked off-bearing all the time, and was prepared to work as long as the mill was!

But I appreciate all the work either way (and charge by the hour ;) ) 8) ;D :o

Watching the video footage and I realize this crew was working hard most of the time...the issue wasn't them, so I stand corrected.  It was just not enough guys to stack and sticker and keep up with 16 footers coming off the mill.
