This shot was taken in Dryden NY of a KW self load log truck entering town southbound on route 13.  During the depression years in the 30,s a lot of farm land was abandoned and bought up by the state and reforested.  In more recent years land not suitable for modern farm machinery had been allowed to go back to nature and native species such as maple and beech have returned. There is a large mill on the west side of Cortland NY (Gutchess Lumber) and others scattered about the state. 7-16-2010   sorry about the sign.

Here is a picture of Terry Wright's truck loaded and empty.

Took a picture to show how some of the trailers are loaded.

A Western Star after a days work stoped for a coffee with the trailer down before going to the tire shop.

Yes it is Tri drive, with it being able to lock up each axle as well as power dividers.  They have moved to a different cut block so he is happy only use 1 set of tripples, last 2 weeks all 3 axles had to be chained up, steep comeing down.

The settings on some of these shots suck, but the best I could get at the time with the current weather conditions.

The shot of the Jerry Boyce truck was in Astoria, but next to the Ford dealer by the New Youngs Bay bridge.  The other shots going over the bridge are the Lewis and Clark Bridge in Longview WA.
