Product Description

About the Author

First and foremost, Jeremy Kroeker is a culinary idiot. Born in 1973 in the Mennonite Mecca of Steinbach, Manitoba, he immigrated to the Canadian Rockies and Canmore, Alberta where he discovered that certainty of knowledge is guarded by a hedge of insanity. But, mostly he just eats a lot of canned soup.

This is a short book, just 116 pages long, written in the form of a diary. It's a great and funny read and is extremely well written.

If you are looking for an epic tale, a grand journey, a deep and meaningful quest to discover the inner self, then forget it. This is the story of two young Canadian guys who decide to shake off the blues (girl problems mostly) by getting on a couple of motorcycles (Kawasaki KLR650s) and riding somewhere. Central America happens to be exotically unlike Canada and handily nearby. As for a plan or an ultimate destination, well they'll think about that later.

They rapidly find that they have between them a variety of bad habits and incompetencies, and develop an ability to get on each other's nerves. It is all told by Jeremy Kroeker in a lively and funny manner, typically Canadian and self-deprecating.

The writing is lean, sharp, intelligent and stylish, and there is a welcome lack of any kind of self-indulgence or pomposity. Kroeker is all out-there; you warm to him quickly, and are with him all the way. He's the uncomplicated, friendly, smiling biker throughout.

The journey flashes past at quite a pace in a series of encounters with locals, trucks and truckers, missionaries, wealthy Mexicans, border posts, cops, fellow travellers and of course roads. There are side trips into the jungle and up not-very-extinct volcanoes. It is all a very enjoyable romp.

The diary form - lots of fairly short day-by-day entries - doesn't really allow the book to develop much, but that is no loss in this case. What you do get is a kaleidoscope of funny, slightly hair-raising and entertaining episodes with a few poignant moments thrown in for good measure.
