Read from November 25 to December 30, 2010

I'll start by saying that I really am impressed by the author's sense of adventure and ability to adjust to all kinds of uncertain, awkward, and difficult situations. Riding solo on a very heavy tandem, pulling a trailer of camping gear, and picking up strangers as riding partners along the way over a 2-year journey from Alaska to the southern tip of South America is totally off the charts. While there are some ups and downs along the way, for the most part, the trip goes relatively smoothly, and the author adjusts pretty well to most of what he encounters. That said, there's just, for the most part, not all that much drama for some long stretches. I'd like to have seen some more detailed maps of some of the areas he passed thru also. Overall, it's still quite a good read if you have an interest in bicycle touring. I'd be willing to rate it 3.5 stars.
