Yup. Used to be the lumber was stacked high enough to obscure the view of the buildings. I used to stack what they termed "green-in" lumber. This is hardwood, mostly oak, to be sent to the kiln. A typical scenrio was 8/4 (2" thick) un-dried wood 10"-24" wide, lengths up to 16'. Some of that stuff weighed close to 250#. Schleping those boards around was no picnic. I've not worked harder before or since.

I have heard alot of tales from that place. Bitter cold, tough labor, treated like mules, and alot of druggies worked there. (no offence to you guys) I had just heard there was some problems once upon a time from a relative that worked there.


Mark, Those tracks hold fond memories of jumping. I will never forget when a kid from school hit the tracks at like 55 in an old Capri 4 banger. He was traveling east and it literally caved in the front suspension, smashed the exhaust closed, and bent the rear axle. It slid just past the junkyard parking lot and into the field. He left it there and caught a ride with a buddy that was following him. The next day he stopped by to give the title to the junk yard for the car. LOL

Or how about the time that the semi carrying a load of florida oranges got stuck on the tracks. LOL

Alas, it did provide for a welcome trip down memory lane.

I spent my high school years living not 2 miles from this tag.
Sold one of my first cars (1980 buick skylark pos) to this very junkyard.
I also worked one bitter cold winter at the now abandond lumberyard on this road 19 years ago. I hadn't been down this road for close to that long.

Thanks for the memories, Mark.

Edit: Good tag Mr.0.
Damn I was going to ask your name to see if I knew you, but then seen you would have been a Sr when I was in 3rd grade.

Nicely done, Paul.

A good Bruc'ing is the barb on the tagging lure (to use a fishing metaphor). Once you have swallowed the hook deep enough to get Bruce'd, it is hard to wiggle off. It just makes you want it that much more.

Way to guys...another tagging frenzy.



Night tags are cool but someone is slipping on the major awards.

It's interesting how people get into this game, and then become tagging animals after their first tag.

Well done, Paul. I considered getting that tag overnight but just wasn't feeling it. Hopefully your next tag will be closer to home... since you live 15 miles away from me!
