Once completed,

When it comes to works about the Great American Road trip, I've always been much more of a Steinbeck Travels with Charley kind of girl than On the Road or Easy Rider. The entirety of the quote I stole from Steinbeck to make my blog title is this: "A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans,
