About the Author
I am a Forest Engineer with 40 years of experience loading and transporting everything from motorcycles to bull dozers. I was a logging and road construction contractor for 10 years in Oregon in the early 1980’s to the early 1990’s. For the past 10 years I have had a contract with the State of Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration to manage timber and roads on about 3.5 million acres. In the last 10 years I have put more than 380,000 miles on my pickups, most of which I have been carrying an ATV with me. I have learned a lot about loading and tying down vehicles from my experience and from the many people I have interacted with over the years.
