Down on the Farm -- Summer trips
Sometime during the summer of 1970, Dad and Mom loaded sister and I up in our old car, drove to Fargo, traded for a brand new Ford LTD station wagon and without even going home to show off the new car, headed for the West Coast.
That started a summer family tradition. For the next 10 years, every summer of my childhood, an epic trip was an expected ritual.
