One More Day Everywhere: Crossing Fifty Borders on the Road to Global Understanding | [Glen Heggstad]

One More Day Everywhere: Crossing Fifty Borders on the Road to Global Understanding

In 2001, martial arts-trained biker Glen Heggstad began a journey from California to the tip of South America on his motorcycle and made it as far as Colombia, where he was kidnapped by local rebels and held captive. Undeterred by more than a month of traumatic incarceration, the 'Striking Viking' finished his trip after being released. Three years later he set out into the world on his bike again, this time searching for truth on his own terms in a world that had become strangled by a climate of fear.

Publisher's Summary

In 2001, martial arts-trained biker Glen Heggstad began a journey from California to the tip of South America on his motorcycle and made it as far as Colombia, where he was kidnapped by local rebels and held captive. Undeterred by more than a month of traumatic incarceration, the 'Striking Viking' finished his trip after being released. Three years later he set out into the world on his bike again, this time searching for truth on his own terms in a world that had become strangled by a climate of fear.

Starting his trip in Japan, he traveled through Siberia, Mongolia, Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, and Africa, stopping in more than 30 countries to deliver his message of the real United States, as he knew it. Unique stories and gritty adventure fill this quest for new sights and insights amongst extreme temperatures, knee-deep mud, bureaucratic roadblocks, health problems, and loneliness.

    Story
    "A must read for someone attempting a distance ride"
    What made the experience of listening to One More Day Everywhere the most enjoyable?

    As someone who has ridden across borders, although not nearly to the same extent, I found his descriptions of the process, and of cycling very accurate.


    Would you recommend One More Day Everywhere to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it highly to someone that REALLY is going to do/ has done a long distance ride. It is superb prep for the hassles and paperwork you will experience. I would not necessarily recommend it to someone just looking for a travel book to take you away. There are not many descriptions of the people, culture, and foods. This book is more about the journey as an accomplishment. As a travel narrative it is 2 stars, as a distance motorcycle guide it is 5 stars.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are some good descriptions of his experiences in parts of Africa.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen, 2 hours at a time, when riding my bicycle ion the mornings.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr Heggstad is the real deal when it comes to motorcycle riding. A few of his martial arts analogies make one roll their eyes like that one friend we have that is into martial arts and talks too much about it. That being said he gives a superb and accurate glimpse into what to expect with your bike, what happens at border crossings, and the bureaucracy of it all. He is not a food lover and says as much and there aren't many vivid descriptions of people and the cultures he rides through. Its about a rider conquering and accomplishing a hard task. How to get from point a to point b. It is absolutely a must read for anyone thinking of doing the same.

    Story
    "One man's journey to discover humanity"
    Where does One More Day Everywhere rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks quite high. It is filled with honest and unwashed reality.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The inclusion of the relationships he formed along his journey. So often this aspect is ignored or whitewashed.


    What does John Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Though he doesn't sound like Glen, he does convey the emotion and spirit of the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Many points moved me to laugh and smile.


    Any additional comments?

    An exciting and riveting adventure that connects a man to his humanity.
