Josiah Heiser is 31 years old and lives in Bozeman, Montana. Josiah grew up around his grandfather's sawmill in Montana and ran a loader since he was seven years old. But after 9/11, Josiah felt compelled to join the army. Before he could be posted overseas though, he was injured and had to be invalidated out of the forces. Struggling to find work in the U.S, he found a job for an American operation, but it was at the South Pole! In Antarctica, he operated heavy machinery in temperatures below 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
He is now back in America with a new wife Jai. But Josiah has struggled to find work in the logging or construction business. He is currently living in a trailer and is desperate for a chance to better his life. Josiah has the skills to work in the toughest environments, but he hasn't logged for years and he has a lot to prove to himself and to the rest of the crew.
