    Thanks for sharing the link Dan. Did you see the one of a giant fir being transported through town.
    Thing that struck me was the size of logs in any of those pics.

    Interesting pictures. My grandfather and g-grandfather were loggers in the Florida panhandle.
    I still have two short section of pine (would be about 10" diameter) salvaged from a barn my g-gf built about 1895.
    Not showing the logs but here is the oxen team.
