Adventure of Olli and Konsta in Luua Forestry The END

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!

So, it is time to tell to you, what we have done on this week.

This week was pretty much same than last week. On Monday we went to cut some big trees which was too big to harvester. Tuesday – Friday we went to forest and we thin out with chainsaws. It was rainy week over here so we didnt went to outside at all. Hopely the weekend will be more sunny! Two weeks left and we are going to drive some machines, not sure. This is pretty hard to write about this week becuase we didnt do anything interesting.

Here is some pictures what I took from Monday, Enjoy. -Olli

Well hello there. Our adventure is on half way and this week was kinda boring and we doesnt have any new pictures because the landscape wont change at all because this is so small village. Anyway I will tell now what we have done on this week so enjoy!

On Monday we met another teacher who speak Finnish very well and he is also a lumberjack. He will keep care us on next week also. We got chainsaws and we “cleaned” the sport field by cutting some bad looking trees etc. Tuesday we went forest and the weather was so bad. Raining heavily and when we went back to school, our clothes was so wet. Wednesday and Thursday we both were sick by Tuesday and Friday was a holiday (workman day)

So that was our week and I think next week will be same. Anyway I will show some pictures of this trip. -Olli
