Bummer. Looks like it could have been worse. Working in the weather is rough.
Oscar 328 Band Mill, Husky 450, 372 (Clone), Mule 3010, and too many hand tools. :) Retired and trying to make a living to stay that way. NYLT Certified.
OK, maybe I am the woodcutter now.
I can work with wood, but I am NOT a Woodworker, yet.

well that load of pine was hauled all the way from new hampshire to maine. he was going by his gps instead of staying on the main rd he turned. the good news he was 1 mile from the mill. what held the truck there i don't know the wrecker driver said the same thing. they unloaded two tier then pulled the trailer back into the rd. i asked the driver if he had enough of trucking yet. he says no i like it. i dont think it was his truck and someone said it might have been his first day. that hill is steep i may have backed down it a few times sanding it in a ice storm

To day you find tractor trailers on county roads where you have never seen them before and they are not making deliveries. I live and work in a triangle with 2 address and if you gps either it will take you to a neighbors home. I am on a state road by a large, red iron bridge and have stacks of lumber along the road. Nobody will take instructions from me but they will somehow get my mailing address and bother my neighbor. I wonder if owner operators are this dumb.

He kept it shiny side up and nobody got hurt, that's what matters the most.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

I have been there, done that.  Just a few miles from the mill too.  The mill sent a self loader truck over and bailed me out.

I would not be too quick to judge the driver unless I heard his account of how this happened. Too bad there was no skidder handy. And he kept the sunny side up. I was sent to a job once where I told my boss that it was too wet to get in and out of the job and the boss insisted that I go. When it didn't go well the boss wanted to put the blame on me. He threatened to fire me because I wouldn't fill out an accident report. I told him it wasn't an accident, it was his stupidity. I was eventually exonerated when they looked into it further. Stuff happens with log trucks, this is nothing.

the main rd has a left turn to it. to get on this rd he had to pretty much stop then its a 1/4 mile to the steep hill. should have been this cant be right. pick up the cb or the phone. yes he did well not to upset it. very seldom do the log trucks have problems in a storm. now the guys hauling lumber out. last winter had the driver call the law its slick they call me. here he is on flat ground over 1/4 to the first little hill. he tells me i cant make the hill....you didnt try . or the one that went down a dirt rd then tried to turn down a driveway in freezing rain with a big truck. ended up in the ditch. that driveway used to be a town rd and there used to be a bridge across the river    150 yrs ago.............if it dosent feel rite sound rite look rite        stop
