Without sitting down with receipts I'd guess I'm between six and seven months gross income in debt trying to launch the book and I haven't left home yet. If I don't sell a bunch of books at the Expo I just might be seen at the entrance of a shopping centre holding up a sign that reads "Traveling, need gas money". Personally I think the book is very good, my editors think it is very good, and I think as word gets out it will sell well for it genera. But who knows, people may think it too expensive, though it is in colour and cheaper than Tom Sheppard's B&W version (Colour printing just about doubles the printing cost). If I could, I would love to sell the book for the printing cost. But I need to make back the money I have spent or be in a world of financial hurt for years to come. It is also why I'm jonesing so hard to try and win the coolest overlanding truck contest. First prize is a certificate for $500 of gear purchased from expo vendors on the last day of the show. Most of my recovery gear is over 35 years old and past its useful life or gone. I'm currently down to my shovel, hi-Lift jack, and a set of waffle ladders I was recently given. Oh and one shackle. Thanks for your vote. I wish I can give a discount for multiple books but right now I just can't.
And I thought I was the only Rover owner living paycheck to paycheck.
I'm not even prepared for anything. Aaaaagh !!!
Sounds like I'm not that bad off after all.

The book, "The Essential Guide to Overland Travel in the United States and Canada. A Resource for Independent Travel and Camping" is both a How-to and a why-to. Why you might make one choice over another depending upon your individual situation.

The book is divided into three sections: Getting started, gearing up for extended overland travel, and going out on the trail. Content includes the basics of choosing a primitive camp site, cooking on the trail, proper hydration, choosing clothing based upon the fabric blend and not appearance, driving over different terrains, getting unstuck, choosing and using recovery gear that’s appropriate for your vehicle, traveling with others, communication options, maintenance, and much more. Throughout the book there is a focus on traveling in harmony with nature and leaving no trace behind as you travel and camp.

My best analogy would be to think of Tom Sheppard's book which is focused primarily on North African travel using gear available in the EU. My book covers most of the same topis only focuses on North American travel using gear available in North America with a strong focus on traveling in harmony with nature to keep open access open. I also think my book is a lot more readable.

The book represents what I have learned in 38 years of travel and camping in my 1960 Land Rover Dormobile and my understanding of what gear is currently available in North America.

The book has a web site: Guide to Overland Travel in the US and Canada

You will find additional information and the complete table of contents on the site. When I return home, I will add a buy it now button on the web site allowing people to purchase autographed copies of my book.

I just voted.

Is it possible to preorder the book? That way it will magically arrive one day as a nice surprise.

Anyway since I will be there selling copies of my new book and teaching classes I entered my 1960 Land Rover Dormobile. The Green Rover — Overland Expo

I'm being outvoted by a vanilla looking 2005 Toyota 4Runner with a roof tent. He is doing a better job than I am at going to various forums and begging for votes. So I thought I had better up my game.

I would very much appreciate you going to the web page with my entry and voting for the 56 year old 1960 Land Rover Dormobile that I have owned and traveled in for the past 38 years. How is a 2005 vanilla Toyota 4Runner a cooler overland travel vehicle than a Series Land Rover Dormobile with decades of overland travels in its history???

In case you are wondering, the winner gets a certificate worth $500 for purchases from expo vendors during the last day of the show. Most of my recovery gear is over 35 years of age and should be replaced or updated.

SO please, I would very much appreciate your vote.

No. I'm sorry but all the logistics of getting the books and myself to NC , teaching classes at the expo, loading the truck, and more, are about all I can handle at the moment.

My first focus is 200 books at the expo.
Later they will available, unsigned from Amazon.
When I get back home I will add a PayPal buy it now button to the book's web site so people can purchase signed copies directly from me.

There is also a one time printing of a special mendo_recce edition I need to get a proof copy printed. The mendo_recce version is hardbound, on heavy paper with deluxe colour printing and about 40 additional pages. The additional pages include a history of the mendo_recce email group (in its 22nd year) and over 30 pages of pictures of members & vehicles at mendo events. This in addition to the contents of the regular book edition. Right now I'm guessing that there will only be about 100 copies of this version printed.
