Heres a fun site from our neighbors to the north.

Life in the Cowichan logging country.

Theres quite a bit here and it makes for good reading. Someinteresting little tidbits regarding the use of trucks and the fact that tires were not tough enough until the inventing of Rayon to take heavy loads.One of the reasons it took trucks as long as it did to take over logging from railroads.

Of course the inventing of the Cat bulldozer for making roads didnt hurt either ;)
