The addition of a Chuck Wagon to the Northwest Carriage Museum's collection brings their total number of horse drawn vehicles to 43. This is more than double since the museum opened in 2002.

When I look at a chuck wagon, I see much more than just a wagon. Sure it was used as a range kitchen, for all the meals, coffee and biscuits for breakfast, beans, biscuits, meat, cobbler and coffee for supper. There was always a pot of strong coffee brewing when the chuck wagon was set up. But the chuck wagon was so much more to the cowhands far from home. While the cowhands were responsible for moving the herd, "Cookie" and his chuck wagon were responsible for moving the cowhands. The trail boss was officially in charge but it was "Cookie" who was always respected, never talked back to and issued most of the orders. After all, he not only fed you but also mended your clothes, had the medical supplies, moved your bedroll and belongings to the next camp, provided the entertainment, provided a place to wash up and shave and, most importantly, always had that pot of coffee going to rinse the trail dust from your throat. On a special occasion, "Cookie" might even break out a jug for a little nip of whiskey. Yea, you never wanted to be on the wrong side of Ole Cookie!
