Not an adventure story as most individual destinations in the book would be worthy of a family Sunday drive, but a terrific story not just of Gary's journey but as incentive for your own. What I took away more than anything is that you don't have to ride to distant places to see the beauty of this nation. When reaching the end of the book, Gary actually listed his two favorite destinations in the whole country... literally in my own backyard. They' re places I ride to often, when time is short and there's thinking to be done.
While the issues with his family contribute to Gary's personal story, I'd rather he had written less on that and more on the other destinations - north and south - he mentions riding to, but doesn't tell the story as he does in the cross-country (and back) trip. Hopefully he's saving that for his next book!

All-in-all, if you like motorcycles, travel or just personal stories, this is a terrific choice in an easy to read and hard to stop style. I can see it as one of those books I'll read more than once over the years.

I ride and am interested in any true experiences involving two or three wheels and travel. Book is an honest attempt by one person to tell others of his experiences. It has the style of a trip log that might be used as a time line reminder in the creation of a story. It is lacking in detail and color. It is overly simplistic and does little to involve the reader. Made the ride seem so uninteresting that I would rather not try it his way.

This is not a travel guide, although you could learn a lot about parts of this country. It's not a guide to motorcycle travel, although you could learn a lot about that as well. And it's not (just) the story of a bike trip, although it starts there and everything that follows connects to and flows from that trip. It is not a slick, professional product, it's more like the kind of tale you would hear over a couple of beers, very personal and open, and for me that was a plus. In this memoir I got to know Gary Stockbridge like you would get to know your neighbor or your cousin - a normal guy who loves to ride and finds relief and redemption in the face of job loss, serious health problems, the death of loved ones and family conflicts, someone who struggles and suffers and still rides into the landscape of this country with his eyes open to the beauty that's there.
