To all; In book 2, Lug Nut has gone back to the states, and his home base Fort Riley in Kansas. When the new army trucks came out, he was given to a farmer. The farm is sold, and Lug Nut is abandoned in the forest. During a blizzard, a family’s Jeep breaks down on the forest road. They look for a farm house, and find Lug Nut. Lug Nut ultimately ends up in a junk yard, where in book 3, Coop buys him.
If you should purchase the book on Amazon for the kids or grandkids, please leave a book review. Thanks to all.
