A humorous but extremely thought-provoking account of a full loop around the United States taken by a (fellow) expat and his family. An enjoyable read from start to finish that makes you want to pack your bags and see the same things while looking for answers to similar questions!

Very enjoyable 2 month adventure tour of the US by a young family. The author is a College of Wooster graduate! who is married to a French woman. They have 2 young daughters when they decide to return to the US for 2 months of exploring. Anyone who has traveled with a family will appreciate the fun and challenges. A fun read!
