  1. Winter Preparations

    Yes, I am fairly certain it is mined here.
  2. Winter Preparations

    Certainly could be mistaken on the tonnage. The other truck drivers said this was the smaller ship of the two. I did not talk to anyone from the ship. Very possible they had it wrong. Either way its alot of salt. We get paid to truck it by the hour so don’t matter to me how much it had.
  3. Winter Preparations

    When that ship comes in I’ll be sure to let you know.
  4. Winter Preparations

    Trailblazer is spot on. You got it. The guys in the loaders and cranes on the ship are all union employees of the port. You don’t want to know how much they were making on the holiday yesterday. Trust me. It was triple time for them. Paid holiday plus double time for working on the holiday. Their normal rate is lets just say between $70 and $80 per hour. Do the math. Nope is covered with plastic then a heavy tarp. Big giant mountains. Here is one finished pile. In back of blue building.
  5. Winter Preparations

    While most are thinking about swimming pools, boats, motorcycles and warm sunny weather, up here it’s never too early to get ready for next winter. Spent my birthday and all day today (30 hours in two days for me) unloading a ship at the port in Becancour(south side of river from Trois Riveres). This is where they stockpile the road salt for most of Mauricie and beyond. This ship they tell me was the “petite one” only 42k ton of salt onboard. The larger ship will make one or two visits to unload before September is finished. It holds 78k tons. Thats gonna be alot of trucking. This one we started on Sunday morning at 8am. 4 tri axle semi-trailers and 2 big off road Dump Trucks. 3 loaders beside the ship loading the trucks. Another loader at the pile where we dump and an excavator on the pile to stack it up. Takes about 12-13 minutes round trip. Give or take. I made 67 trips Sunday and only 62 today. 24 hour operation until the ship is empty. They expect to finish this one off by midnight Tuesday. I’m back to my regular show tmmrw so I won’t be there to finish it off, I just went for Sunday and the Holiday Today here, Victoria Day. Thought you might enjoy to check it out.
  6. Joyeux Anniversaire Monsieur Iceman!

  7. Team Travels

    Got your text yesterday, sorry for the no reply. My phone decided it had enough action for one day. Battery fatality. Looks like an awesome trip over there, enjoy. #teamiceman #worldwide

    The “Work” horses for Club Motoneige La Tuque are in the Barn. See you next season.
  10. device !!!..........beeeeeeeeeeepp !!!

    They been using this for years in off road logging operations on ice roads. Where roads are way too narrow for two trucks to pass. Works exactly the same.
  11. Warm Weather Groomers Needed

    Put a Sticker on it. And send it!
  12. Another gas stop loss

    Not on the front door, I do not believe but, one was installed there. If it’s still there, I can not say.
  13. Another gas stop loss

    Lac Carling, nice for sure. Heated Garage like Fairmont but is free.
  14. She's Warming Up : (

    She has already left the stage here. And to think I trucked snow for 3 nights this week. All that new snow here and none of it to be ridden on here at least.
