Publisher's Summary

A chronicle about an Army veteran who becomes homeless and follows his dream of hiking and cycling all over North America. Although he is homeless, he gets by with his survival skills and the help of strangers as he raises money for various charities and support groups. His altruistic trek spans over the course of three years and comes to an abrupt stop at his 10,000th mile. From Delaware to California, from Florida to Alaska, follow along to experience this man's journey of compassion, chaos, supernatural events, deadly situations, loneliness, comic relief, selflessness, betrayal, heartbreak, and humbleness. You will never hear a travel story quite like this one!

Disappointing.

this book was basically a summary of the daily food eaten, miles traveled, and camping spots. All worthless info in my opinion. I could care less that you ate crackers for dinner, rode 50miles that day and slept behind a gas station.
Failed to mention anything about the trials and tribulations of a journey of this sort, lessons learned, internal and external challenges, personal growth, thought process assessing situations, travel reccomendations.....
would not recommend.

Rare

You won't find another book like this one. What an amazing journey. Honest, shocking, distributing, confounfing, heart warning and exhilarating; with a subtle, dry sense of humor and a melodic rhythm. I'll be listening to this again.

Must read/listen to

Thank you Jake for sharing this trip of yours with us. To do what you did not only for yourself but to help children who’s only wish is to live long enough to grow up says a lot about the man you are.
I do not think I’ll ever take a walk or travel without trying to better appreciate what my eyes take in. Thank you again. Ernie
