    BC logging equipment left to rust

    Your camera has to put many a smile on your face, setting something in the blind. When they have no idea, how you can be so talented, best operator they have ever seen.

    Working the National 1300A

    What is the experimental plane that you fly Natman? I went to the Stearman fly in last week and got a couple rides with pilots I have met over the years. Sure lots of fun and always enjoyable meeting some of the pilots!

    Demolition, clearing and grading

    I try to scrap as much as possible when tearing down houses. I did a demo for the church and told them I would give them the scrap. They didn't think much of it till it paid for a third of the cost of the demo, job.

    A few projects I have done recently

    You do some interesting and good looking work. I had to dig for a new commercial service 3 four inch PCV pipes last week. Had two gas lines and a fiber optic to go under, plus cut the street. I helped pull the 2500' of wire this week with the electricians old pole truck that has a reel on...

    A few projects I have done recently

    Gee maybe they are getting close to building mine, I ordered one in November last year also. I had to cancel the gooseneck hitch because they said it would not be made this year if I wanted one it's an F350 long bed.

    Thunderbird Yarders, Loaders, and Etc from the Murray's in Eugene Oregon

    I hate thieves, and the problems they cause. Then the judge lets them go, which really burns my rear.

    Demolition pricing help.

    Very seldom do I give a firm price on demo's, especially old corn cribs. They didn't have a dump truck to bring fill so used concrete, often old machinery pieces for rebar. The county sent me a letter from a job I did 4 years ago saying I didn't get a demo permit for removing concrete. I had...

    I knew I retired for a reason

    First Winter Storm, maybe....

    If my driveway wasn't frozen I packed the snow down and drove on it. Much easier than raking rocks out of the yard in the spring.

    Any brand log trucks

    When I was there a few years back as I remember the truck and trailer were close to 80K we were hauling 250K of logs. The grade coming down was maximum of 30% it took about 300 gallons of water each trip to cool the brake drums.

    Why do you rarely see jackhammers and air compressors?

    Years ago there weren't very many hydraulic excavators, which have now dominated the construction industry. They have reduced the need for a hammer that is slow, and makes a lot of noise. I still have a hydraulic hammer that I can put on my skid steer, or my mini excavator. I don't use it...

    Frozen stuff in tracks

    The fellow I started working for a long time ago, would get a tire burning and pick up the crawler loader and hold over the fire. It made a blackened mess but got the tracks thawed out. I clean out every night and park on tires usually. Much easier to prevent than to clean it up. Don't have...
