On this day in Mendocino history

September 8, 1921 – Ed Rasmussen and James Bowman, the local garage owner and Ford dealer, went out to Mettick Creek on the Southfork of Big River to get Rasmussen’s truck. Rasmussen had bought the Ford truck from the Caspar Lumber Company. The only problem with his purchase was that the truck was on a road that had been completely blocked by felled trees.

Bowman disassembled the truck, and they packed the pieces out to the county road on pack mules.
