Shitty Trucks, Big Trucks, Good Luck!

The first two photos are not mine, but I couldn't resist stealing them, mostly since we see the great times I had dealing with an over-heating truck on Canada Day Eve.

It started the week off on the right step, taking 6 hours to get to a city 3 hours away...

And this is the giant trucks we had to deal when we were replanting land in the middle of a gigantic open-pit coal mine.

But the best truck I had to drive this season was the rollogon. The slowest machine to ever roll over earth, and sometimes, mud. Contrary to my supervisor's original beliefs, it won't go over a crevasse though. I'm doing the classic John-John pose there.

Alright, guess I just wanted to post pictures of shitty and/or big trucks. I'll leave you with this one:

Will Update Soon

Haven't had time to write stuff on the planting blog. It's the post-planting season and it is the time of the year when I don't miss nor want to talk about treeplanting much.

I will post stories and pictures about my 2008 season, but I guess I should send some info to my treeplanting company so they could pay me my non-production day hours before I actually undergo less productive endeavours.

Not working, at all, feels great though.

Potential planters, start getting as much info on the job as possible, you'll need to start applying in December. Jobs will only get rarer if the industry remains the way it is, which is a rather optimistic assessment.

To the fellow planters, enjoy the post-season, travels and school. Will post soon and start missing planting around mid-December if the previous years are any indication.
