Lois Pryce was working at the BBC in London, firmly set on the career track. But unbeknownst to her coworkers, Lois was leading a parallel life as well, that of a biker babe with an overwhelming case of wanderlust, one that couldn't be satisfied by a weekend holiday. Her days in a cubicle were numbered, and it wasn't long before she was back on her bike and looking for adventure. Armed only with the Spanish words for "caution" and "cheese," Lois set off& to conquer America---both Americas, actually. Starting in Alaska and working her way down the Pacific Coast, she rode through snow, desert, and everything in between to reach the southernmost tip of Argentina. Lois tackled every type of fellow biker imaginable and endured everything the continents could throw at her with quick thinking and a vibrant sense of humor. Whether bribing her way through Central American borders, spending the night in a Mexican brothel, or crashing her bike in Patagonia, Lois's bright, funny travelogue will charm anyone who longs for adventure and a stretch of the open road.

OK, this one looks good so I've placed my hold. But I was curious about when this ride happened, so I learned she rode Alaska - Argentina in 2003 when she was 29 years old. And since then she's also ridden through Africa (2006) and Iran (2013-14) - and written about those travels as well. Her blog [http://www.loisontheloose.com/about-me/ ] might be of interest to anyone who's in the queue...

This book has inspired me to trek out on my own adventure - not like Lois, but anything is possible!
