and another.

After leaving the trucking world behind, Charles P went to work as an independent logger in the Pacific Northwest. His "can do" attitude and the hard-scrabble, grizzled look he sported at the time made him immensely popular with the old-timers, and he soon earned the nickname "Stumpy". However, when he discovered that logging required him to actually CUT DOWN the trees instead of just sitting beneath them to enjoy his lunch, he threw his chainsaw into the river - which made him immensely popular with the Sierra Club, and left Charles P in search of another career.
