And there was a diary every night, written by my husband. The where, and when, and how much gasoline, and how much did our food cost us--everything per? taining to the trip was written in that book--every day--and where did we camp, what town near, or what it was. Every night. And the cost. The cost was very--I really believe, if I remember right--it couldn't have been very much because there wasn't any of us that had any money to speak of.... I think it was in the neighbourhood of $180. It was very, very low. Because...nobody had any money, you know. Just a little bit of money we were going on. (How long did this trip take?) Well, the round trip, we left home on June the 6th and we were back in August. Two months. And we stayed, I think, not more than two weeks here. Not any more than two weeks. We were anxious to get home. And then we stopped two days in Illinois with my brother-in-law's family. And then we stopped with my brother--in Boston. We were there two days. And that was all.... We were travelling the rest of the time. Yes, we got back home the last of August. (What did you do with your car when you got home? Did you sell it?) We picked a dog on the way. We found it just before we got home, we picked a beautiful dog on the way. We'd like to have this dog, so-- somebody came along, and they looked at the car, and he, "I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll give you a dog for this car." It was gone. We never got a dime off the car. We kept the dog, and he took the car. (This was back in Los Angeles.) Back at home.
