    Well... this is 5 years late , but , yeah some of us went to WS when the transition happened. Most did not. A lot of the old hands just hung it up.

    I don't think anyone lasted more than a year at WS from the Broyhill ranks , as that's not stickhaulin'. That's a company that bought the business of hauling sticks. It was an exercise in futility.

    We've all scattered to the wind now. Most are retired. A few of us are hauling sticks at Zenith. A few at Sunbelt. Some are pulling flatbed for a local lumber mill.

    We were a pretty tight group. There were only 50 of us , give or take , and we all cared about each other a lot. You can't find that any more. It sad.
