1 redneck, 1 ATV, 1 homemade logging arch.  Thinning Doug fir.  Doesn't really show, but this was a fair grade up and out to the skid road.  This area was horse logged in the 1920's and hasn't had any management since.  Unfortunatley, the pine beetles are killing all the big Ponderosas, but they make nice timbers if you get to 'em quick enough.

Picking Up the Chains. The log hauler operator picks up his "tie down" chains for placement with the loader's clam. This "trick" and "skill" saves time and unnecessary labor. Witte timber harvest 6/03.

This is my part homemade and part bought, TSI trailer. I've already decided that the 4/wheeler isn't going to be heavy enough for any hills. But its a good excuse to get a bigger 4x4 - 30hp tractor.
