    i drove 2,5 kilometer to a parking place and after decouppling the rear part of the chassis about 27 tons less weight i could lift that axle.



    the darn thing was it's lowerts itself above 40 km/h.
    still had another 35 km to go.
    place a strech belt around the axle and chassis to keep it up that way.



    ( i'm not that great in selfies, i had this shirt clean on that morning, someone will be mad when i get home. but this you got crawling over and under a truck to place the strech belt)

    and i could drive again,all in all it takes me 1.5 hour extra. drop the chassis there and went back for the rear part. by the time i was back they discharge the 20 tons of marple plates couppled everything together and they discharged the second container.
    back to Rotterdam drop the containers ,drop the truck at the company yard and went home.
    had a week of ,to work on the new HC

    No not really. Most of those roads are gravel and solid. When it is just soil we don't go in the forrest.
    Cost to much to pull us out. We don't have the right type of tyres for that. We always get a place were we wait for the logs truck. A parking place or a cross- roads.in the forrest or nearby, but with no traffic.

    Interesting report, Thijs.

    When you go to backroads like these, do you sometimes worry the road can not handle the weight of your cargo and truck?

    .

    thats true, but thats is only for when it's stays in the aeria to a sawmill or something like that.
    those logs goes to Asia,to far away for a forestry truck to deliver,also when you see the GE maps,even to far away from Rotterdam.
    and they could load more (mine weights with a empty container between 22 and 23 tons, depends of container) ,but they have to secure the logs too then for transport to Rotterdam and they need many forestry trucks also to deliver them to Rotterdam. that one forestry truck loaded 6 containers within a few hours, there are times every day 6 to 8 containers a day. we stay on the gravel/tarmac paths, but that can also in the middle of a forrest,but we stay out of the soil paths. the forestry trucks collect them from the forrest,our office get the cordinats of were we had to wait and the boss pick us up from the parking place and take us into the forrest where there is place to park so that he can load them.
    works well

    everything was better in the earlier years,but there are things that i/m glad i live now
    but then again
    respect, collegiality was more and stress was less then these days
