“Passages — Volume I” is more than a collection of emails sent to friends and colleagues tracing a trip around the U.S. in a 28-foot Airstream with three little hounds. It represents an extension of the American Dream. It embodies the fulfillment of a “quest” … into the hinterland, onto the Mountains, off to the Pacific. It delves into the very core of what this country is all about: from the kindness of an iron monger in Glens Ferry, Idaho, to the patriotic throb of Mount Rushmore, to the nostalgic beat of Route 66. It is a fun read, puts you in tow, as well as behind the wheel, and if you happen to become transformed, it might just serve as a very good and accurate travelogue in the fulfillment of your quest.
“Passages — Volume II” is truly the second time around. It is the story of a camping road trip from Washington to Florida. The story is a collection of emails, known as i-bloogles, chronicling the journey. Photographs put you on location and are a constant reminder of the beauty of America. In this second time around, you will rediscover the same ol’ 28- foot Airstream cocoon, fondly called “Past Tents,” hitched to the same ol’ Tundra pickup truck. You will travel with two loving little hounds and you will hear the siren call of the open road as this adventuresome couple tow the blue-highways down the Pacific coast, through the mountains, and into the deltas. You will relive episodes in our history — from the ruts of the Oregon Trail to the rattles of Elvis’ birthplace. It is a fun read and will put you behind the wheel … again.
