This book is for you who wants inspiration by discovering the world for a shorter or longer time, and get new impressions every day by traveling, either in nature or by meeting people. Or those who want to know a little more about North America's continent (even if it is your home continent) or want inspiration to feel that everything you want to do is possible. I, Olov Giertz, and my friends, Karl Sitell, and Torbjörn Ekman saw new landscapes and talked to new people every day. Our physical performance was approximately equivalent to body work in eight hours a day. Most people can do this without any special training. We got a lot of experiences, we lived in tents and saw much wildlife and national parks. this book is based on diary notes and letters home from the 1991 trip, when we rode from Anchorage, Alaska, to Key West, Florida, a total of 8000 miles, one third of the Earth's perimeter at the equator. The Illustrating photos are my own. I hope you will enjoy your reading and think it's interesting!
