Lee the Horse Logger visits Coshocton

| May 30, 2013

001COSHOCTON – Imagine traveling the open road with nothing but a five-horse team and a covered wagon with very few provisions. That’s exactly what Lee the Horse Logger is doing across the nation, visiting small towns to restock his and his horses’ food supply, and visiting local establishments.

Lee’s destination is Waynesburg, PA where he hopes to find a logging job. He’s already got the horses for the job as his five traveling companions are logging horses. This is Lee’s third time crossing the United States.

Lee left his home in Montana on Aug. 9, 2006 and has been on the road in his homemade covered wagon ever since. The wagon mostly houses supplies for his horses, although he does have a loft where he sleeps and a 4×7 driving dock. These conditions are not anything new to Lee as he considers traveling and logging his livelihood.

Being on the open road in his journey across the nation, Lee has experienced every weather extreme imaginable. He and his team of horses have experienced extreme heat and cold, tornadoes, hail, pouring rain, and even lightning striking close to his wagon.

Lee has his team of horses at Roscoe Village Visitor’s Center today and tomorrow. To find more information on Lee and follow his journey across the country, visit his Facebook page, Lee the Horse Logger, or visit his website at leehorselogger.com.
