The Road to Gobblers Knob - From Chile to Alaska on a motorbike -Â Â -Â Geoff Hill - Blackstaff Press
De Pan-American Highway op de motor van Chili naar Alaska.
â€˜At 16,500 miles it was the worldâ€™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 couldnâ€™t put down. You become part of the adventure and all its ups and downs, and the book is bloody funny. Itâ€™s like a cross between Ted Simon and Flann Oâ€™Brien â€“ a cracker!â€™ Hairy Biker Dave Myers
The next day, I went out to buy every book that I could find on it. And found that there werenâ€™t any.
Then itâ€™s about time I wrote one, I thought.â€™
