The Road to Gobblers Knob - From Chile to Alaska on a motorbike -  - Geoff Hill - Blackstaff Press

De Pan-American Highway op de motor van Chili naar Alaska.


‘At 16,500 miles it was the world’s longest road: a road on which travellers faced being kidnapped and murdered by Colombian drug barons, buried under Peruvian avalanches, drowned by the Guatemalan rainy season, fleeced by eight-year-old Ecuadorean border touts, driven mad by blackflies in the Yukon, eaten by Alaskan grizzlies and, worst of all, limited to a glass of Chardonnay a day in California. The Pan-American Highway.

It sounded brilliant.

A brilliant read, a book I simply couldn’t put down. You become part of the adventure and all its ups and downs, and the book is bloody funny. It’s like a cross between Ted Simon and Flann O’Brien – a cracker!’ Hairy Biker Dave Myers
 

 

The next day, I went out to buy every book that I could find on it. And found that there weren’t any.

Then it’s about time I wrote one, I thought.’
