Two years have passed .....A lot has changed....and then he met Maggie. In a jazz bar in Columbus Ohio and he challenged her to learn ham radio, get in shape and leave with him in August. And she did and they were well into the 4k of their first date.
The reason I love this book and buy up copies is the same reason I loved and bought and but Bill Gates book The Road Ahead. Because they speak volumes of the history of the computer tech world and serve as a reminder of just how damn far we have come.
Steven Roberts did just this. Sold the house, cars, quit his job to begin his long (and true) trek across the United States. Armed with a CB, a sattelite uplink, a laptop computer, and other high tech gadgets (circa late 1980's) he writes about his journeys in a fascinating manner. This is what MTV's Road Rules is....for adults. What is amazing is the people he meets along the way, the sites he sees, the trials and tribulation of finding water and getting a flat tire. I can't give enough praise for this book, and would love to read anotehr one if he has one.

I'm not really much of a techy but I loved Steve's bicycle adventure and innovative lifestyle he pioneered. The book is a must for anyone interested in Technomads.Published on December 31, 2011 by Wondering About That
