    Hi gang.
    Just want to introduce myself.
    I am a Heavy Duty Mechanic with over 35 years in the trade hence the "wornout wrench" nickname.
    I grew up and have lived on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada all my life. From a very young age I alway had a love of big equipment.
    When I was a kid and lived in a remote logging camp, I used to play in the boneyard, the old machines were better then any tree fort.
    I have spent most of my career in the forest industry, now I spend most of my time rebuilding heavy equipment.
    I really enjoy this site and have finaly got myself registered so now I can post.
    Looking forward to having some fun, posting some pictures and making a few new friends, possibly connecting with a few old ones.

    Cheers

    Brian

    Notice Willie was the first to say welcome. Probably cause he's also worn his wrench out. ;)

    Hi Blitz138
    I'll help out as much as I can, I'm more knowledgeable on logging equipment.
    I have the opportunityty to move over to mining and I just might make the switch just to see how the other half does it LOL.
    Not sure what you mean by crazier and crazier, I know that they are going balls to the wall, a few new ones opening up, but that is all I know for now.
    If I do make the move, I'll keep in touch
