Strapped into an American Dream captures America by whirling readers along a 35,000-mile trek through the 48 contiguous states in a rebuilt RV. Glenn Maynard brings this journey to all of the armchair travelers who will love this adrenaline rush. One week following his wedding, Glenn and his wife quit their jobs, sold their cars, and set out to find America. This book details how they were able to realize this dream, and then introduces the unique people they met and places they visited along the path. Travel with them through 23 National Parks, Las Vegas, Mardi Gras, and dusty ghost towns. Feel the rush from tornadoes and the rocking from an earthquake. Sleep on roadsides and in truck stops, shifting from state to state, risking danger in favor of a limited bank account. The maps in hand directed these two adventurers who decided to get lost in America, and ended up finding America as a result of their constant thirst for its history.
These are the dreams of many Americans in all walks of life. So many people want to travel the country, but few realize this dream. They may do so vicariously by reading about these adventures. Feel your adrenaline rise while reading this book. Laugh along the way. Share the terror, sorrow, and humor as these feelings surge through all of the armchair travelers who wish to be strapped into an American dream.
