They've arrived! Bonneville Go or Bust by Zoë Cano
In life we all have dreams. But do we ever attempt to make them happen?
A true story with a difference. She had nothing. No money. No time. No motorbike. No experience for such a mammoth trip. But she did have a clear vision. So with gritted determination, she goes all out to make her dream come true: to travel solo and unassisted across the lesser-known roads of the North American continent, starting in Boston and covering more than 8,000 km on a classic Triumph Bonneville.
My dear high school friend, Julie Bowland, now teaches art at Valdosta State University. She is the only one of a group of us in school that grew up with dream of being artists that stuck with it and now makes her living painting and teaching painting to others. The rest of us either ended up with jobs that had no connection with the arts or or jobs that used that creative side of us as a small part of a bigger whole.
