summary Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Brad Van Orden

On an afternoon just like many before it Brad Van Orden sat at his desk When a coworker meandered past his window Brad succumbed to an impulse and blurted out the most outlandish thing he could think of Hey Steve let's drive your hippie bus to Tierra del Fuego This prompted Steve's halfhearted response I don't think so But this got Brad thinking What if we just dropped everything and left Isn't there to life than this He messaged his wife with a uestion Want to do this to which she immediately responded Yes They clearly had no idea what they were getti. I felt that the book was written by people who traveled but somehow did not fully bond with the world that they traveled through There were instances in which they could have dug deeper and explained the economics of the places that they visited and even listed statistics to create a much deeper understanding They however avoided doing this for the most part and instead focused on the traditional travel log style of writing I think that there were some pretty memorable moments but they are also hampered by slow monotonous talk The author had a fascinating struggle with fishing but never once thought to interact with locals on a deeper level regarding the matter The book is also heavily written by the male traveler Brad and seems to include Shana I believe that s her name sparingly I am curious to see what things they do on the next leg of their trip but cannot help shaking the feeling that this is a very forgettable book in the long term

    This is the memoir of a couple's drive from Arizona to the southern most tip of South America in their VW van which they named Nacho All the while you're reading you wonder what they could have possibly been thinking to take on such an endeavor But in the end their reasoning becomes as clear as a Patagonia lakeThe self publisher in me only gives this book 2 stars It is loaded with typos and missteps of grammar and synta

    The best part about this book was to have a list of potential scout out locations for future travels However it lacked depth and was focused a bit too much on the mechanical problems versus supplying actual insights into the journey besides trials which can be expected or really anything amazing that happened Also the chapters which were written by Sheena just seemed a bit of a random toss in Think I’m done r
