Chuck Wagon - A chuck wagon is a type of wagon specially built for carrying and preparing food. Chuck wagons are probably best recognized by their back, which has a drop-down tail gate that covers drawers and other storage compartments when moving, and that serves as a work surface or table when opened up and dropped down. Chuck wagons originated in the American West during the 1700s for use during cattle drives.

Stage Coach - A type of coach best known for being used as public transportation in the American West during the 1700 and 1800 hundreds. Stage coaches traveled from station to station (or from "stage" to "stage"), stopping at each station to change horses and allow the passengers a chance to rest.
