Got ourselves a 'convoy'?

"It was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June and a Kenworth pullin' logs" are lyrics from the truckin' song "Convoy" and last Friday a string of loaded log trucks made one think of that old CB radio lovin' song from years ago, as it appears things are fairly busy in the timber industry.

Most local logging companies say that they are busy and it appears things will remain busy for a few more years. With extra logging sides in operation experienced timber workers have been more difficult to find. Locals also may notice many out of area trucks in town too, as companies were unable to find enough local trucks.
