    @Brightsea, that was my first thought too, used for logging to break up jams.

    My son think it looks like a firemans tool to poke holes in a door to vent or to pull the door open. He thinks it's a fire hook.

    I wish I had access to my parents old pictures right now, but they're 900 miles away. @CrealCritter, like stated by NHH, I think the old loggers poles looked just like that, used in upper Michigan and Wisconsin. My mom's grandfather was a logger, and my dad's uncle's ran the logging camps. We've got tons of great old pictures, I just don't have them here.

    No idea....my first guess would be a board road like the oil field workers use to be able to drive across fields without getting bogged down in the mud - but somehow I don't think it's a mud-related issue there. :idunno

    Same deal but on sand....

    They had an old plank road crossing the desert in Imperial vally heading up to the Stage trail that crossed the mountains....

    [​IMG]

    it seems the sand dunes covered it up and uncovers it now and then... Now most of it is lost.

    Part of the Butterfield stage rout went past where I live... There are old rock buildings here and there that mark stage stops ....
