If you choose to leave the forum lumberjack, that will be your decision. I've become a little tired of how much more, better, faster one man can be at skidding wood than others that also do it for a living. I've seen how hard men work in a day in the woods all week long. It's not a job for slackers, that's for sure. However, I have no reason not to believe you was a top producer in your day. But over time I think the figures that one recalls get a little fuzzy. Even I catch myself, or someone else does on here with numbers that don't seem right. Then I get to think about it a little harder.
I just did three loads with my small log trailer last week of various species and grade levels. Most of it was low grade beech and low-grade hard maple but I did average $1600 a load. My trailer can hold around 1900 bft or close to 4 cords of wood. Couldn't get anyone to haul it for me given the band on trucking & the lateness of the season as I normally try not to do any trucking. Cost me roughly $225 in total fuel expenses for three trips to haul 5700 board feet. Not a lot of money in those logs given the overall effort but worthwhile to me as I own the stumpage.
