    How many hours of cutting on either side, Squish?
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    About all you would be good or safe for Cory. Seems more accidents happen after the 5-6 hour mark.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Still makes for a long day, from what I'm told, travel to the woods and back.

    Ain't no seems to it at all - it's a statistical fact. Plus, Fridays are the worst...

    Yup.
    And Sean also brings up the trip in and out. Sometimes hours of driving, or a flight in and hike too on top of your day.

    How about east coast/ midwest/ southern (might be feller-buncher loblolly pines or something) logging? How long do people cut/ commute?

    That's for falling, those hrs.

    Logging we did eight hrs on site. Sometimes super long commutes, truck, boat or heli are the only ways I ever went back and forth to the block. Worked many fly in camps but never took a plane to and from the block/worksite. Seen over 2hrs each way many times.

    So, no travel time? Not even one way?
