Wed i picked up a tarp load in kenora ON. 40 below wind chill 52 below.
Tarps were like plywood. But the sky was clear the sun was shinning. And they had a tarp shed.  
Heading to Grand Rapids MI then to sault st marie pick up lumber and head for Belchertown ma.

Tarps were like plywood.
Straps can freeze too. I had a couple loads where the straps were caked in layers of ice and frozen onto the winches. Some peeled apart after thawing them out while standing outside in sub-zero windchill. Others I just cut off and got new ones. Oh the fun I used too have flatbed truckin'... 
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

Wife and I  enjoyed going through it.  We combined it with a woodmizer open house in indy.   Go to woodmizer site to read about their part in building it.

Well summer is here and time to get my logs and go home.  Hemlock, could have got a couple more on but was worried about the weight.  Have not pulled a full max weight triaxel to know what my gauge pressure should be. Logs were 10 to 14 tops 16 to 22 butts. 50 plus long.

Do you have a big right leg from standing on the throttle . I did Beach ND to Fargo in 5 hours and I wasn't buying the fuel . That KW would fly set wide open .

No problem we are all automatics in the KW.  But still on the foot through the mountains, The first 5 hrs was 20 to 30 mph, very narrow and squiggly road, hairpin turns etc, once on the #3 I was pretty good except on the hills down to again 30 mph. pretty solid and road very nice.
Got home and the 150 hp tractor was dead alternator is gone took it in to the dealer today for a bunch of work, So used the 65 hp JD 3020, lift one end of a log and then the other or just dragged several off.
