You all think you'd have made a career of treework without modern gear? That was a hard life getting stuff done. Logging's hard work anyway, but when your tool is a misery whip, and you're gonna be running it all day... Doing it once? Sure. You'd get home, and think "Man, I really did a lot of work today. I don't want to do that ever again", but to be told you have to do it for the next 5 days after that, and every six days for the rest of your life...

Kind of hard speculating I guess. Newer people look back, and think "I'd never do that", but you did, and it was ok cause that's the way it was done. There's probably people now running harvesters thinking "I'd never spend my day beating myself up with a chainsaw" :^D

I am amazed at the power of the old machines, the steam donkeys, and the yarding operations. Huge wood just being pulled along like it was nothing,
