Preview Matt’s book, The Open Road, Two Wheels, One Summer, 13000 Miles of Asphalt, and a Pup Tent, and the first thing that draws you in is an email he sent to a good friend explaining how he longs for an authentic adventure. When he writes, “I want the fog that settles in the mind to be driven away by the light of truth and redemption,” you know this isn’t going to be your average road trip. He goes on to ponder transition, restlessness, and ambiguity. He touches on Slurpee and vodka send-offs. (Note: There was no driving while drinking vodka Slurpees.) His 178-page book is filled with notes on what the trip meant to him, and the beauty he saw on the road.
Congratulations on such a wild ride, Matt. Your story and visuals beautifully captured your experience, and you really put together a unique book. Here’s to your next big adventure!
