Hey everyone! The last week is nearly over and we didn’t really have time to do anything else other than practicing on simulators. The trip has been extremely nice, apart from some little drawbacks that we were able to handle. But no we’ll look towards the upcoming summer holiday and next falls semester. And a special thanks to all of you people who made this trip possible for us! A very VERY big thank you
Howdy! We started this week by getting to know different lumber types and measurements and already on the next day we got back onto the forest to thinning it on harvester. There the whole week went by like flying! At first we had some little challenges, but after some practicing things started to work out and the aftermath was appealing to not only ours, but to the teachers eyes too! We still have one week to go and after that, we’ll be coming back to home!
Hello everybody! Now we have been in Luua for two weeks and everything is all right. On Monday we fixed one training machine and drove a harvester simulator. On Tuesday we went to the forest to pick up some logs and carried them back to the school. On Wednesday and Thursday we did some repairing on a Timberjack with a few Estonian boys and it’s done now! On Friday we woke up earlier than usual and went to the other side of the country into a city called Pärnu. There was a ROTTNE work show where were able to take part in! It was a very interesting day because we didn’t have any experience with that brands machines, but we liked it, and hopefully we get these machines to Finland too – Konsta
konsta and lots of oil! =D
Hello. We are Team Lokomo and our names are Olli and Konsta. We are first year students from Jämsänkoski Forestry school. In autumn 2014, Kari the teacher asked us to go Estonia, Luua forestry school for exchange students on 12.4.2015 – 22.5.2015. In few minutes we accepted invite and we prepared go to adventure. When time has came, we went to Estonia in monday morning on 12.4.2015.
First week in Luua.
We has arrived in Luua on monday afternoon with Kari and there was waiting one teacher from Luua Forestry school, Marko. Marko show us the most important places where we can go to first days.
We made some deals where we will go and when etc. Kari sent us to forwarder contest with others Luua Forestry students. The idea of contest was to do a tower from short logs under 10 minutes. It was pretty easy to us and we did it under six minutes. It was our first time and teacher said it went very well!
Middle of the week we went to forestskill competition. Same day in the evening was time to share rewards and we got a pouch and there was inside forestry things. End of the first week we drove harvester and cut some trees to logs.
We also went to Maamess fairs and after that we went to lunch to local restaurant BabyBack rips&BBQ which was a very nice place. There was on offer different burgers,pizzas and also juicy steaks. After lunch we came back to student dormitory and prepared go to sleep. So that was our first week and here is some pictures for this week…
Moment when we drove harvester first time!
