(From the publisher):
Engine trouble in Patagonia. Sadistic troopers in Peru. Document hell in Columbia. Ice-slick highways in Alaska. Therse are some of the perils that Tim Cahill braved in the course of driving the 15,000 miles from Tierra del Fuego to Prudhoe Bay in a record-breaking twenty-three and a half days, all in a valiant attempt to find out how far you can go -- and how fast you can get there. Cahill documents this epic road trip in a fiercely adrenal and breathlessly funny book that tells us everything we ever wanted to know about low-budget counterterrorism; what the psychic effects of a diet of beef jerky and Farmer's milk shakes are; and how professional adventures can coax General Motors and The Guinness Book of World Records into subsidizing their high-speed wanderlust.
