Charles Kellogg's Travel Log

Charles Kellogg was a naturalist, vaudeville performer and a campaigner to preserve the Redwood Forest in Northern California.

A truly remarkable man of many accomplishments, one of which was to create the "Travel Log;" what would be called a motor home today made from a single 8-ton redwood log estimated to be 4,800 years old, mounted on the chassis of a 1917 Nash-Quad truck.

He used this beautiful vehicle to travel across America from 1917-1921, promoting awareness of the Redwoods. Today the vehicle has been restored, and is prominently displayed in the visitor center at Avenue of the Giants, in Weott, CA.

There is a log truck in the Avenue of the Giants Visitor Center. It is a fully restored log mobile indoors. Very cool.
