Term: Travois (logging)
Definition: A drag used to haul logs from woods to skid-way. Generally made from the natural fork of a tree with a cross piece bolted midway in the V. In using, one end of the log rested on travois the other end dragged on snow on the ground. The same as crazy-drag, go-devil, snow-snake.
