Ok, this thread is driving me insane.  I need someone to pm me their snail mail address that would scan and post a picture or 2 of my skidders.  I am becoming insanely jealous.  Thanks.

Ok, I am going to try to stick my skidder picture in here real quick.  But I am supposed to be working.  I hope to post more shortly.  This, if it works, is Molly and Ginger pulling a pinoak pallet log this winter.
