Where bad choices make good stories
Nice flat land. I've seen those things operate on some very rough land. Steep hills etc. It takes a bit of talent to fool in areas like that. I'll bet the guy in the video has been in those areas. He seems to know his stuff.
I enjoyed watching that, even though I've never been an equipment operator in the woods.I hope Mr Manley for his next video, takes his camera into the woods and does a day in the life of a crew of hand fallers.Tim in AK
What is the title of the Johnny Cash song at 4:48?
Here 'tis-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-P6qS1eZIM"Is it one for forward and three for back" refers to talkie tooters, the gizmos used by the guys in the brush to signal the needed movement of the carriage to the yarder engineer. After you've worked on a yarder side for a while you hear those toots in your sleep and on weekends.
Thanks Elmo.Grandpa was a logger. I have a photo of him on springboards standing next to a 48" birdsmouth. I believe it was a Cedar on the Olympic Peninsula.
Cool! There's a guy that collects vintage photos of old logging scenes that would probably love to have you share that photo with him. His e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org at P.O. Box 319 Siletz OR 97380His name is Quinn.
Blake Manley here. We have more videos out there trying to inspire the youth of today to go get a job. Thanks for the support.
No, thank YOU! It was an excellent video and you run a great series. I'll be posting more of them in the future.
