Ok, it's not really an emergency but it's driving me nuts. I know there is a term for the method of pulling logs up an inclined plane (ramp) using ropes. I CAN'T REMEMBER IT. It's driving me bonkers. I believe I saw it here on Permies.com but can't find it, and I googled it and found thousands of references to the technique but didn't find the term. I am a long time reader but have never posted before. I absolutely love this site and the people here. So, I guess I'm no longer a lurker. "Hello my name is David, and I'm a Permie"

I just asked my husband and he knew exactly what you were talking about and has used that method of moving logs but didn't know the name either.
Welcome to the forums, David.

We always called it "cross hauling" or "crosshaul". Not sure if that is what you are looking for.

Parbuckling was the term I was looking for, but if others know it by other names throw them out there, and thank you for the responses.

I've learned a new term. I've never heard it called that before. Thanks!
 
Something must be done about this. Let's start by reading this tiny ad:
