    i feel like i have definitely heard the name or seen the trucks! Condolences on his passing! i love talking with old loggers, they always have the best stories! i heard quite a few of them when i was there this past year with my chainsaw collection!

    Also where are you from? An hour is not very far away.

    i talked with my sister last night, she is on the board and she says that they are wanting to increase the entry fees to all of the competitions and change around and get more sponsors so they can have higher payouts for the competition winners in the hopes of attracting more people.

    I’m going to talk to my sister and see if we can’t get the tractor show to come back and also get some chainsaw carvers to come.

    Not sure about Mr. Hanson (Coon) but Mr. Joe is stepping down from organizing after 2018 and since no one wanted to step up, and she said if they couldn’t find anyone to do it then the forest festival would be gone and i can’t and won’t let that happen, not after 39 years! If it does then it won’t be because i didn’t try my damndest to save it.

    Well that’s good to know! I’m still learning how everything is done and setup, I’m trying to Get Logger Wade from YouTube there for this year to hopefully attract more people from out of state.
