What begins as a serious exploration of the borders between the United States with Canada and Mexico quickly deteriorates into a comedy of mechanical, social, and natural disasters. King's four-month, ten-thousand mile solo test ride of the newly-imported Russian Ural sidecar motorcycle is punctuated by cracked welds and electrical gremlins, evil tow truck drivers, roadside romances, even tornadoes and hurricanes. "A great read!" says Lonely Planet - "Carla takes every breakdown, every weird encounter in her stride with a sense of humor, an eye for the ridiculous, and incredible stoicism." Come along for the ride; you'll have a great time.
