It’s a strange phenomenon, but Log Luggers
aren’t bought by men…….in the first instance.
You would think that
in today’s world of murky divisions of labour, firewood would neatly
fall on the male side of things. And it does.
But the male ego is
such, that any aid for carrying firewood is frowned upon by most men.
They think that if you don’t bring the wood in by the armfuls, with
woodchips all over your clothes, bang into doors and walls as you go
and ruin a few woolly jumpers, you’re not doing a good job.
It’s the girls who see
the sense of a Log Lugger. They’re the ones who buy them for the men
in their lives. They ignore the bloke’s usual response of “what do I
want that for?” and just get one, because they know what’s good for
Now this is the interesting part. The
bloke grudgingly gives it a go. Well it’s there isn’t it? He might
as well use it. And surprise, surprise. He finds that it works. It
makes life easier and does the job better than an armful of
splinters. So now he starts making lists of all his hairy-chested
mates who need one too and before long he’s our biggest devotee.
You see, lots of things influence our
customers. Sure, quality and style are important. But who would have
thought that the Log Lugger could be ego driven?
So it was with Carolyn
Rasmussen, one of Australia’s leading historians. The first one she
bought resulted in the standard “what do I want that for”. Which
soon turned into “we should get another one for the second fire
place”? And then "we should get one for Paul". Carolyn thinks it's nature not nurture that’s responsible.
She says that every man has a firewood gene in there somewhere,
which compels bare handed cartage only.
We can’t help with the
ego factor, but since the devil is in the detail, we can tell you a
little more about the log Lugger.
