What a fun story. It's an adventure Garp or Gump would have gone on. Or any other fictional character. But the fact that it really happened makes it all the more fascinating. Few people would have the courage to launch into a life adventure like this. It's a neat story that has interesting characters, conflict, thrills and made me laugh. As much fun as the trip sounds I'm glad I can just read about it. Definitely worth the money and time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There is the “traditional” bravery – saving lives unexpectedly in the face of horrible conditions. And then there's George, who as you can read in the book description is 61 years old and hops on a decrepit van for a hiphop tour of the United States with three “twenty somethings” – playing guitar, eating fast food, maintaining a wild irregular schedule, and staying with friends of friends or relatives of band members across the country. I think he's brave, and you'll enjoy this short, well written account of a wild trip to everywhere.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I wasn't sure what to expect but the title drew me in. And I got pulled into the story - into the van - with the band. The narrative had me right there, on the stage, flopping in a flop house, craving a good breakfast. George writes quickly with wit and a keen sense of pacing. The photographs fit perfectly. I'm reminded of a time in my life when I did things without a plan and things worked out. I wanna do that again. George did and appears to have had a ball.Was this review helpful?
