climbing Mount Everest in blue jeans and a pair of bowling shoes and
boozing the entire way up, or swimming across the Atlantic Ocean in a
Speedo and some Swimmies while towing a keg of beer behind you. Well, The Mile Marker Party celebrates one young
man-child's drive to do something just as crazy and utterly ridiculous,
and all that he did during that unforgettable summer to try and not die
along the journey. Coming from Library Tales Publishing on this Go-For-A-Ride-Day (November 22nd) - The Mile-Marker Party: one young man's inebriated struggle to pedal across a continent and find his way home.
About the Book:
1998, a 22-year-old man-child with a mediocre set of balls, zilch
between the ears, and a mind-blowing alcohol problem, placed the last of
his worthless belongings into a dilapidated baby carriage, attached it
to an even older bicycle, and decided to see if he could pedal nearly
3,000 miles across North America. With little more than pocket-change,
he wondered at his chances of making it home alive.
This book is not
only the ultimate in adventure-infused memoirs, but a dare to come paint
on some spandex as an All-American boy turns into an absolute madman
while trying not to die with every mile that passes. Saddle up and
strap yourself in for a unique brand of humor as a journey unfolds
through lands that will have you ultimately asking yourself just how in
the hell this kid managed to forage his way, all the way through The Mile-Marker Party: one young man's inebriated struggle to pedal across a continent and find his way home.

in the highlands of Papau, New Guinea, trading meat with cannibals, he's
just about seen it all, and now, finally, is ready to spew forth his
one-of-a-kind experiences. The Mile-Marker Party is the first of his
many jaw-dropping adventures to come...
