Old Dog Log at Port Alberni B.C. Canada


Recommended Posts

I met Bob Dingsdale through the BigMackTrucks forum, crossed on the B.C. Ferry to Van. Island then up to Port Alberni. The city built a new arena and gave the Historical Society use of the old one. What a great use of a building. The community has several retired old loggers who tinker around with very old equipment 'til it looks and runs like the day it left the factory. Bob came down and gave me a tour then we went to his house where he has a '56 LJ off-highway logger completely restored. This person is a walking Mack encyclopedia, he can look at the side of a truck and tell you the make, model and year it was built, even has details of dozens of trucks imported into Canada, model, build date, when it left the factory and was delivered, Customs brokers and original owner. Best 5 hours I've spent in many years. Thanks Bob. Ted Campbell
