The inspiring story of a life-changing adventure….
After battling cancer and leaving a failed marriage, Kathleen had many reasons for doubting herself, feeling overwhelmed, and lacking self-confidence. But, instead, she pulled herself up and found a way to reclaim her life and regain the confidence those events had almost ripped from her. She got comfortable riding a bike as the operator, instead of in the passive role of pillion rider, and took off on a prodigious ride of self-discovery, criss-crossing the US on her own motorcycle. Along the way she tested herself with long-distance "Iron Butt" rides and, while visiting many of the country's most beautifully inspiring natural wonders, slowly regained her love of life and adventure, and rediscovered her own inner strength.
This is not a swashbuckling tale of conquering the Andes or crossing the Altacama; there are plenty of books for that. This is the story of Kathleen's inner struggles and how she rose to meet the challenges those inner battles presented to her. An inspiring story that you don't have to be a rider to appreciate.
A wonderful book about taking on a life-changing motorcycle ride. Even if you are not a motorcycle rider, you will relate and will rejoice with Kathleen on this life-growing experience. I encourage everyone to ride along by reading her story.—Jean Davidson, granddaughter of Harley-Davidson's co-founder, Walter Davidson
I experienced swells of joy reading about Kathleen’s triumphant escapades as she explored this great country. Her story of grief, fear, and pain—culminating in courage, freedom, and blessing—is one that can bring light into otherwise dark days to any reader. For those who can’t explore for themselves, Kathleen’s adventures can be experienced in the pages of her book. I could almost feel the wind in my face as I read and was excited to hear descriptions of places I’ve been and places I long to visit.—Nancy Williams, MA, Marriage adnd Family Therapist
A great example of the capacity to overcome adversity. Kathleen’s story really captures her ability to work through life’s challenges, and to face down the self-doubt that creeps up in us all, opening up the door to an incredible, life-changing adventure!!”—Ian Andersen, Founder of @MakeLemonadeTour

"We had become known on the various Internet forums as 'those two idiots' as we bumbled our way around from one minor disaster to the next"
Mayhem, mirth, and adventure follow these two riders across two continents. Jack and Marcin set off for Thailand thinking they were prepared, more or less, but mostly less. This story is full of mishaps and triumphs, told in an amusing style. Here is an honest overland excursion with all the highs and lows, wins and losses, wonderful people and low-lifes, and charms and pitfalls of their manner of travel and of the countries through which they pass.
