We needed to sell the house in Dearborn and move for Dave's new job in Ogden, Utah. When the house didn't sell fast, Dave drove himself and his car west, in October 1992, taking a northern route and seeing two presidents and several mormon sites. When the house finally sold in Februrary 1993, the three of us drove the new van and followed a more southern route picking up six presidents and showing America to Jesse.
