I will cherish this book always for many reasons, but the "Top 3": 1) Denny's writing style gives you a glimpse at the trials & tribulations of setting a goal & actually realizing it. It is easy to establish a goal, but a whole different story to actually set out & do it. 2) Denny's experience reminds me it is "OK" to NOT see an entire road in the same drive, no matter how much it frustrates me to not be able to do that when I want. 3) Denny's descriptions & photos of different places along the way give you the basis for your own exploration & journey along the highway. Sometimes, I like a little "mystery", & in this case, using Denny's experiences as a guide to plan my own will allow me the opportunity to investigate & meet people as I go.
My only "issue" with the book ... I found myself searching online for different places after, & in many cases during, each chapter. I literally "followed along" via online maps to see the roads & get a overview of the different places Denny traversed. But, for a "map junkie" like me, this just enhanced the experience.
Yes, it was an effort of love for the author but not very beneficial to the readers. Thank goodness, I did not have to pay for the book.
