Dave Hoekstra visits with Will Freeman, Professor of Physical Education at Grinnell College in Iowa, who completed a summer-long cross country road trip in a Morgan 3 Wheeler.  Freeman discusses the mission for the trip, which ties into a course he’s teaching and a book he’s working on with the focus on rediscovering the American dream through an intimate road experience.  He also talks about the 3 Wheeler, that was hand-built in England, and covering over 16,000 miles and the 48 contiguous states in such an unconventional vehicle.
