About This Book: Part 2. Before I give you some directions on how to navigate America The Beautiful. Part 2 Trip News, I thought I'd give you a brief history of how I originally planned to navigate my transcontinental journey. My initial thought was to simply do a trip around the US by following the perimeter (see Route 2). But when I realized I could work in some key social events if I did the interior states first (see Route 1), I decided to do to all 48 contiguous states. And while my final routes varied a little from these original plotted courses, I did manage to safely and happily complete the 15,000+ mile trip and was incredibly blessed to be welcomed as a guest in over 50 private homes. With that said, here's some things you should know about before you read this original collection of posts I made before and throughout this trip.
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? :-) Since I am brand new to self-publishing, I would like to ask a favor. If you find something that needs correction, please tell me directly. If there’s something you really like, please share it on social media. If you have contacts in the media, tell them I’d be honored to do an interview. And if you are a social media mentor with experience in helping authors monetize online, let’s talk about collaborating and/or trading skill sets.
