Rumor has it I'm related to you guys. I didn't believe it at first but it was confirmed when I found we have the same nose. I'm definitely ordering one of those sweatshirts to represent you guys. My dad is Fritz Gustafson and my grandpa is Fred Gustafson. Hopefully you know who those guys are, or else they're lying to me. Keep logging because you rock at it

Really enjoyed the photos of your logging outfit. My son Ryan is best friends with Cody G here in St. Helens. He has gone for a ride in one of your logging trucks. Thought it was a kick! They are such great kids! Im really tired of Swamp Man! Any chance you guys could come back on TV? My husband was born and raised in Astoria and really enjoys Ax Men. Hope to see you soon!

What a neat site. Great pictures out there in the woods. My family history involves quite a bit of logging/ lumbering. My grandfather and father lived in Fairfax, Washington where my grandfather was the office manager for the Manley Moore Lumber Company. I have many old photos of the mill and logging railroads, camps etc. I've spent hours pouring over those 10X14 pictures. I recently acquired a number of them and had them restored at a local photo shop. They did a wonderful job and I now have them all on disc-best ting I ever did.

Good job to whoever did your website.

Be well,

You guys need to get back on the show because I can't take anymore aqua logging besides swamp man. Phil logging can't keep it together with flip outs left and right in seson 1 and can't even finsh a job in seson 2 and Melvean Lardy is busting Phil's stuff left and right. You guys need to get back on the show because you guys are the only crew that don't take it as competition and just work.

I'm in London and I just finished watching the first series of Ax Men - wish it had gone on forever. I'm leaving this message to say to Darrell Holthusen: in my book, you're a real hero! I'm thinking in particular of your actions and reactions during and after the storm. To this you add the best management and people-handling skills I've seen in my 63 years. Gustafson clearly have a great team - my salaams to each and every one - but, more than that, they have a sure, skilled hand on the helm. Darrell, you restored my faith in human nature. Thank you!

Hi fellas, I grew up in a logging family in Montana. My Grandfather owned a sawmill, and my father ran the logging operation. Unfortunately our company fell pray to one of the first timber crisis back in the 60's. I worked for a couple smaller outfits, but finally decided a new career choice was in order. I miss it and am proud to see companies like yours still getting it done. Nice job.

I've always been intrigued by the logging industry. It's interesting and majestic in it's ways. I own a construction company here in Delaware (East Coast, Mid-Atlantic Region) and we mainly operate as a concrete, masonry and excavation contractor. We don't log but like I said, it's always been an interest of mine. Well, I was bored and browsing the internet, came across your site, I must say, a pretty cool site indeed. Take care and be safe out there fellas!
