Family Road Trip by Book

In 1953, a familiar-looking retired man and his wife hopped into their Chrysler and drove across the United States on a road trip. The man didn't receive a pension to help pay for the cross-country vacation, even though he was an ex-president. President Harry S. Trumann didn't even have secret service to protect him. Back then, he used some money from his memoirs, and drove with his sweetheart, former First Lady Bess, to see the country they had enjoyed in their younger years.
