Jump Street. This week Manuel takes us back to a simpler time in Bingham Canyon. This is when it was common to have a flat bed truck become the passenger cab for your large family. A hint to how this story ends: this could have also been called “Leap to Lee’s” starting Manuel’s sister, Silvia. #miamerica2020 #binghamcanyon
