Transportation Carnival of Genealogy

Here are a couple of pictures of my dad Claude Hansen's transportation. The first picture was taken near Columbus Montana with his bicycle (I still have that bike, but he replaced the tires and wheels years ago as the old sized tires he had were no longer available). He rode this bike to Salt Lake City for a CMTC camp and later to Kansas City to Sweeney's Auto school.
The truck was his early Ford truck he bought to haul logs from the stump farm in Blanchard Idaho. They would roll the logs up smaller logs to the bunk on the truck, chain the logs down and then hall to the lumber mill or to the railroad. He hauled logs first with a Model T truck, then later a Model A truck, and finally a Ford V8 truck

  1. That's a lot of bicycle riding!

  2. Joan I agree, I have never rode my bike more than a few miles, so riding that far seems unreal, but he did do a lot of riding, taking a small tent and sleeping where ever he found a good spot.
