John R. Hall is a true wordsmith — a master of his craft: finding and organizing words for the human experience. I was the one tasked to typeset all 140,000 or so of John’s words into book form. I completely fell in love with the book when I read his intro and the following words, “The term “struggling artist” invokes images of impoverishment, which is certainly appropriate, but the artist’s struggle continues even after monetary matters are resolved. An artist is constantly trying to make sense of the world and society while searching to find his or her place.” Screaming yes inside, I kept on reading, prepping with notes on how to best typeset his book, I was taken back by my red pen underlining sentence, after sentence of beautiful, moving prose. As I got into the heart of the book, my own heart begged to know more about a man who seems to have done/been through it all. So I kept on it, at the edge of my seat as two semi-trucks crushed his ribs, while misfortune blended with blessings seemed to hit him at every corner. Solace in my heart was found along with John’s finding of his own American Dream — only to be stripped away once again. But through it all, he learned life’s most valuable lesson: the most important currency is, time.

John captures an amazing side of life. His creative and fascinating way of describing “life on the road”, his views on anything from politics to motorcycles, and the analogies will give you cause to appreciate every moment and possible rethink a few things. It also makes me wish I had gotten to know him more. Casual acquaintances, John and I share friends and many opinions. Amazing book, John. Thank you!
John R Hall opens his soul and takes you on a journey around America. This book is for anyone who has ever dreamed of telling your boss to take this job and shove it and then hopping on Harley to experience the freedom of the open road. John eloquently shares his journey. Along the way, he exposes his soul and the soul of America. Sit back and enjoy the ride. And loosen your belt a few notches because you will also enjoy some damn good eating and drinking along the way.
Warning: This book is for Patriots who love our flag and freedoms. If you're an Anti-American, Freedom Hating Trump supporter, you may not like this book.
