Although this is only Tuesday, and we don’t make another Great American Road Trip stop until tomorrow, I can’t stop thinking about road trips. Much as I hate to admit it, people looking for a good read about road trips can go somewhere other than A Traveler’s Library. So in all fairness, here are four really good spots that I recently discovered.
- CNN’s gathered their articles about American Road Trips in one handy spot. Enjoy, but don’t forget to come back to A Traveler’s Library.
- Before you leave on your own road trip, read this. Ten Things that Should Always be in Your Car
- Reading for planes, trains and (on audio) automobiles. From The Millions.com . Thanks to World Hum for pointing us to this.
- A brand new book about roads and how they affect civilization, reviewed in the LA Times, The Routes of Man by Ted Conover. I am currently reading a simliar book called Lunatic Express , which I will be reviewing in the next issue of Indie Travel Podcast Magazine. I know,they do not sound similar,but both are (more or less) about men engaging in extreme travel in various dangerous parts of the world, and contemplating the effect that road building has on society.
