Thanks all,
The NHTOA is a good place to meet loggers, truckers, foresters, and other mill owners.
They help keep our land ours, Less regulation from the state.
They work with UNH.
NH is small and everybody in the timber industry is in the NHTOA. [Big and small land owners too]
Or the ones that are serious about the industry, Up to date on laws and trends.
As a group we help each other in the long run.
A place where you can call a big mill owner and ask a ? Or two.
Or a logger that can bury you in logs if you want.


Well, Ann and I are off to another Fair today.
If anyone wants my autograph sent to them, That will be $300.  :D :D
