The second of two-reels by Julian Gromer about his two son’s John and Gary from 1948 through 1972. The film shows John and Gary as teenagers visting various sites around the United States, including Wyoming's Devils Tower and South Dakota's Bad Lands. Later segments appear to be outtakes from the Wandering Wheels films, which shows the two boys as they cycle across the country.
