On this day in history 1903 the 1st transcontinental auto trip begins in SF; arrives NY 3-mo later. Horatio Nelson Jackson decided to undertake this trip with mechanic Sewall Crocker as result of a $50 bet. Bud, an American bulldog, joined them in Caldwell, Idaho. Interesting articles about this trip can be found here and here . Notice in the photo that Bud has his own pair of goggles! (Originally posted on my Yahoo 360 blog)
