Shipping out the Logs

For several days the logs being trucked to Bud Martin's dock from south of Paid een Og's Road on Pinny's Logging truck from East Jordan were simply piled higher and higher, prompting several onlookers to ask, “How high can it go?” When the Ryba Marine Construction's 85' flagship, Kathy Lynn, arrived in the harbor with a huge barge in tow, people had their answer: “About this high.”

After three days of loading, the barge set off for Ironton, through Lake Charlevoix. In the meantime more logs keep coming into town (now following the back streets), and people are
again wondering, “How high will this pile be?”
