02.13.2014 – Mansfield, Ct – How much does it weigh? “A lot,” says Shawn Allen, a 42-year-old Marine Corps veteran. Allen, who works as a tree-trimmer, says he walks several miles a day pulling the log with the goal of, “The bigger the better.” Adding, “besides, they make good mantle pieces when they’re done.”
This is the sixth log Allen has used for exercise and he has named it, “Captain Larghe.””He was my C.O. when I was in the Marine Corps,” Allen explains, “And I’m going to give it to him when it’s done.” Photograph by Mark Mirko | firstname.lastname@example.org.
