Live your life as an adventure—not as an existence.

There are travel journals telling you what to know before you go, what to see and what to do. Some journals show the authors quitting their jobs, selling their belongings and traveling the world as a nomad in search of adventure. Still others suggest the need to spend money to have fun, see all the sights until you become "museumed" out.

Don't Quit Your Day Job: Adventures For The Working Stiff arrives at doing adventures from a different angle: the everyday working person. Whether taking a day, weekend, week or longer, you will see that the average wishful adventurer in all of us can become a reality. An informative and entertaining journey shows the fun in planning, education and excitement of adventure travel along with the people you meet along the way.
