About This Book: This book literally and figuratively goes all over the place, which is one of the reasons I divided it into three parts. America The Beautiful. Part 1: Trip Chapters includes 10 chapters about my trip preparation and 10 chapters reflecting back on my journey. America The Beautiful. Part 2: Trip News contains all the blogs I did prior to and while on the road. America The Beautiful. Part 3: Faces & Places showcases some of the images I was privileged to photograph in preparation for and throughout this trip.
Since all of the pages laid end to end would be almost as long as the trip itself, I suggest you approach reading it like you would taking your own journey. If you are a true road trip warrior who wants to see and do everything from pre-launch to post-finish, start at Part 1 and then read Part 2 and Part 3 in sequence. If you are the kind of adventurer who likes to tell quick anecdotes about your experiences, start with Part 2. If you are more of a scenic driver, just skip ahead to Part 3 to enjoy the views. And lastly, if you are more of a destination driver - you know, the kind that only stops long enough to fill your tank and empty your bladder (also known as “men”) - then just scroll through the various parts to see what peaks your interest.
About The Author: When I'm not gathering Stories From The Road Les Traveled, I am a Dad, Granddad, writer, photographer, marketer and trainer who calls Arizona home. To learn more about my background and creative services, check out my Gigs and Photos pages at www.LesManess.com.
About The Photos: Unless otherwise indicated, all photographs were taken by and are the exclusive copyrighted property of Les Maness (AKA LesManess.com). To purchase photos or the rights to publish, please contact Les Maness.
About The Missing Links: I have left out some additional pages that appeared my original blogs. However, to preserve continuity and offer added reference, I have made them available as links on my Archives page.
About The Dates: To publish this ebook in a timely manner, I built it using Weebly's remarkable website builder blogging program. That meant I had to manually reorder the blog dates so they would read in proper sequence. So please ignore the dates under each header as they do not pertain to the actual start and end dates which were May 26, 2016 to October 9, 2016.
About The Navigation: To read this book, simply scroll down on your PC, tablet or mobile device. At the bottom of approximately 10 posts, you can click on <<Previous to advance to the next 10 posts, or click Forward>> to go back to the last 10 posts. You can also use the links at the bottom of each text block (as shown below) to make navigation a little easier. Cover = Front Cover for this book, Contents = Table Of Contents for this book, Books = Links to all my books, Home = Home page with my contact info in the footer, Hire = Why you may want to hire or refer me, and Stories = All my latest blogs.
About That Favor? :-) If there’s something you really like, please share it on social media. And if you have contacts in the media, tell them I’d be honored to do an interview.
