Some great stories, if you like ones about the open road. In the end a sense of freedom is the common thread that excites me every time I pick up this book to escape from the 8 to 5 week day and the self-imposed obligatory errand crammed weekends, all in the name of a happy existence. This collection is a challenge to that ideal.
