About the book

Two Brits shipped their Jeeps 3,500 miles back to the USA, before embarking on a 5,500-mile coast-to-coast road-trip from New York to LA. Stopping in Utah, they tackled the world-famous off-road trails of Moab, took a tour of the nearby national parks, and sampled a few of Colorado's most scenic byways. Over the course of three weeks they were almost arrested, swallowed by a tornado, and nearly mugged in Las Vegas. The Jeeps broke down, caught fire, and were nearly confiscated. But they also met some incredible people, all of whom contributed in their own way to this story.

You are in breach of Pennsylvania State vehicle code and you are driving illegally without proper vehicle tags. Your vehicles will be impounded and crushed.

— Angry Philadelphia cop

Reader reviews

Not only entertaining throughout but makes me want to pack my bags and book a coast to coast road trip right now! If you're a Jeep fan, you'll love this, but don't be put off if you aren't or not even in to off-road vehicles. This, as the author says, is a road trip of a lifetime. Described in entertaining detail so you feel you're there as a passenger through the ups and downs. Highly recommended...

Raw and honest with no padding... The best descriptions relate to the people they met along the way ('the human fridge' - my personal favourite), and the situations they found themselves in (tornado, anyone?). An easy and enjoyable read - it made me smile too, which is no mean feat!

Really enjoyed this... from the other-worldly feeling the first time someone from the UK visits the US... the mad dashes across the unreal distances... to the amazing natural beauty of their ultimate destination. It brought back a lot of nostalgia for my own trips.

I really enjoyed reading this book and managed to finish it in just two sessions, as I was so hooked! An all round thoroughly good read which I have no hesitation in recommending.

Loved this book, it was a truly wonderful read... listening to the adventure had by two Jeepers from across the pond. The story just pulls you in.
