When the toughest, hardest swamps need to be logged, Bobby Goodson is usually on everyone’s short list. Bobby is a third generation logger who turned to ‘swamp logging’ a few years after his father’s business was burned to the ground. Although his dad decided to retire after that incident, Bobby simply found a new way to log. He brought the innovative technique of laying down a ‘skid road’ to his home state of North Carolina after watching it done in Georgia. “My dad couldn’t believe it, but we’d found a way to keep from sinking into the swamp and keep the land underneath in pretty good condition too."
