Travel Trivia

Becky? On the movie that inspired her to travel. It was The Grapes of Wrath. She said that the cars had to back up the steep hills because reverse was the only gear that would allow them to do so. Actually it was because the gravity feed fuel tank was located between the engine and driver and when on a steep uphill incline the fuel wouldn't flow to the carburetor.
