Best Answer

The term first came into widespread use by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the United States in the mid to late 1930s to describe small work groups who travelled far from the base camp (carrying supplies by mule or by horse) to work on a distant project. There may be instances of a local use of the term previously but I do not know of it.
