Road trip!

Cabin fever?  Bud never heard of it.

 In May of 1903, Horatio Nelson Jackson and Sewall Crocker slid into the front seat of a gleaming, cherry-red Winton touring car to begin the first known cross-country road trip in America’s history.  But they lacked one essential component: a pit bull

Problem solved when the boys reached Idaho and found Bud.  The men fitted Bud with motoring goggles to protect his eyes from dust as he rode on his front-seat perch.  After their successful cross-country drive, Jackson, Crocker and the photogenic Bud were featured in newspapers and advertisements for Winton cars.
