Oh gosh!! I will be reading this book FOR SURE!! We are about to take off to ride our bikes from Alaska to Argentina – with our TEN-YEAR-OLD ten boys!! They want to get the world record for being the youngest people to cycle the Pan-American Highway. I can’t wait to read their story – it parallels ours in a lot of ways!

Great interview Chris. Listened to it on the train into work this morning and found myself wishing I was out in the wilderness somewhere. Thanks to the Egberts for taking the time to talk about their experiences.
