    it will be just like being a worker in the logging industry who performs the initial harvesting and transport of trees for ultimate processing into forest products.

    Old School Lumberjacking is difficult, dangerous, intermittent, low-paying, with primitive living conditions, but the men built a traditional culture that celebrated strength, masculinity, confrontation with danger, and resistance to modernization.

    I am more apt to enjoy a cocktail while sporting an overpriced flannel!

  13. ELIZABETH MAKHOBEY November 8, 2012 at 2:46 pm #

    Would Love to win then I can get more of my gang together in flanels, jeans, and boots. We would have a BLAST!

  46. Emmy November 9, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    I wouldn’t even have to dig too far into the closet to find the garb!

  47. Kevin November 10, 2012 at 1:03 am #

    I am the tree chopper. You got a tree? I’ve got an axe. My arms have been replaced with axes. I used to be friends with the trees. But those days are done. I chop for it is all I know. I yearn for the sound of breaking branches as a tree falls to the ground. The thunderous explosion ignites my soul. I have multiple beards. This event is inspired by me. Let me be your guest and all I will reveal the secrets to a fulfilling life.

    Chop chop.

  48. Addie November 10, 2012 at 11:19 am #

    I want to win because I’m a true Northwest girl and my poor, neglected lumberjack plaid shirt has been hanging in my closet for way too long!
