    Ya- I think I saw a Cat skidsteer around the corner or something :laugh: If I was a little more redneck I would have had a gun rack in my truck and a shotgun in my lap at that moment!

    And Junior- I showed the nice part. I conveniently left out the part that I couldn't walk on, but the Bobcat could make it through (only once though!:laugh:)

    Apparently I bought the "super heavy duty" version of the Bobcat forks that can lift the heavy weight a T320 is rated for. Maybe the extra money I paid got me the extra steel in the rack. Don't know though, they kinda look like all the other forks in the Bobcat yard...

    Its always key to go through a muddy area once, and only once, you learn that the hard way.. :hammerhead: :laugh:

    This was the job from the last two weeks. Had to open up some access roads that went through a state forest. Looked like this for almost a quarter of a mile :dizzy:.

    Moving the tree around so that the chainsaw guys could cut it up from safer footing:

    Another problem tree :dizzy: Ended up having the chainsaw guy cut it down in small pieces after I kept pulling it out from the trees. Finally got to the point where it would go no farther and was out of the rear stand of trees enough so that we could drop the whole tree holding it up.

    Hey Chris- feel like bringing that Volvo or Daewoo with a thumb up here? One of those would have been nice on this project.
