    When we first started yarding,my son who had never climbed,was
    doing the tree rigging.Last week he told me as stressed out as he was thinking ahead about it,especially the time it would take,it turned out to be a non issue.We had to go up at least 40' on the tail trees.No big deal for you guys,but doin ok for us guys new at it.Thank you for the great photos,they take the sting out of missing my SJ.
    We were able to get another shovel and a skidder to clean up
    the burn (cream actually,going to 10 inch tops!And the mill isn't taking shorties either.) ,all 17,000 acres.The forester said
    in 2 years we'll be needing another yarder. It will probobly
    be a GT3.

    I will have the loading operator send me the ones he took yesterday morning of the sunrise. Absolutely phenomenal as you could see Mount Rainier, mount Saint helens and mount Adams all together

    Good ol 009. Back when compact & yarders were not used in the same sentence.

    That yarder is as big as one of our landings that we occasionally get the chance to work on

    I can't say I miss getting up in the middle of the night to load under lights on the first round . But I truly do miss those occasional gorgeous and brilliant sunrises that we were so privileged to view in the Pacific Northwest .

    I love seeing those incredible sunrises from the landing in the morning, what sucks is watching the sun set and you still have to get home and do it over again the next day. "Two moonlight rides and a picnic lunch!"
