Story Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

This story is a brief snapshot of history as seen by two young travelers who are learning about themselves, while finding out how they are perceived through some harsh realities on the road. It is a sequence of events that illustrate the unbridled energy and adventurous enthusiasm of becoming an adult, along with the distasteful and morose realities from which life's lessons are all too often learned from.

Mandy's Review:


I like the 70s styling of the cover art. Reminds me of the black light posters you'd stare at while tripping or getting high ... not that I'd know anything about either, mind you ...


Two friends decide to hitchhike their way from Milwaukee to California. Along the way, they experience more than they bargained for.

Will they ever make it to California?

Main Characters

Jeffrey - Author and narrator of this autobiographical memoir.

Kris - Jeffrey's friend and hitchhiking buddy whose extremely smart, but just doesn't do well in school.


Extremely well-written and descriptive. Mr. Koconis has a talent for writing stories (even true ones) that capture the reader's attention and keeps them engaged until the last page. If you enjoy memoirs, I would recommend this to you.

I must forewarn you of the language, though. A lot of f-bombs were thrown in the telling of this story.
