    This 3rd Gen. Corn that they are logging averages about 3.6 to a load

    Hallback,
    I admire that you have the awareness and perspective to understand the market you are working in.
    I've had clients in years past that saw what was happening and just parked all their gear and worked in construction until some sanity returned. I like the term "Corn" to describe the current size of trees harvested.

    Is there any export anymore from state and federal land or is that all private timber?

    Thanks John. If you're as old as we are and have seen the cycles like we have you are a fool if you do not adjust with them. No in 1989 the export of timber from state & federal lands was prohibited. It is all local sawmill stuff now for the government timber. That is what we log.

    Apparently you found someplace to work that isn't still on fire.

    Somewhat OT, did one of your lowboys take a Linkbelt over to Eastern Washington Tuesday? As we were headed East, saw the lowboy and wife who scouts names for me as I drive said the truck was labeled Pacific, similar script to what we see in some of your photos. It was yellow and she thought it might be a Pete. She just doesn't have the quick eye and traffic was heavy so I couldn't gawk myself...

    That is about as much log as the machine you have wants to handle is it not?

    More than it wants to handle. I have to one end them on and sometimes I have to choke them

    Here's a loader from a limber and a road user. Just had to post a pic of my favorite log truck in our area rig
