November 2, 1960.
Brian Sims had no idea what he was about to do, how long it would take him or what would happen, but he knew it would probably be a great adventure. He wasn’t wrong about that.
He had graduated from college that spring, spent the summer teaching kids how to swim and was now visiting his friend, Bob, who was working towards a master’s degree in drama at Boston University. At first their idea of opening a film company somewhere on the coast of California had been just a dream. But as time went by it had become more of a goal. Bob had one more year of school left, so Brian thought it would be a good idea if he went out there, got a job, looked around and when Bob was finished they would have a head start. Bob agreed.
Bob’s roommate, Chuck, said he was heading out to Cleveland the next evening and if Brian wanted a lift that far he could go along. Brian agreed not knowing that Chuck’s vehicle was a motorcycle,
