This is the best early trucking story I have ever read. Unfortunately I copied it quite a few years ago.

I will put up the first of ten pages to see if people can read it. I think it will be OK if you expand it as the print seems clear but just a bit small.

Give it a go and if it is OK I will put up the rest.

Cool article.

I was wondering like Swishy where it's set but i'm guessing USA due to flying timber with steel cables.

Interesting comment on boxing gloves and Kangaroos.

Also the truck makes. A couple of Pommie trucks in there which was enlightening.

I drive with my thumbs outside the wheel but that's a 4x4 habit.

OK I will put up the rest. It is in Canada and the bloke is a legend in the logging industry. When you read further you will see they were guts men in those days.

Next one.
