A Nineteen Sixty Three road trip through America
A story of two young men in an emotional struggle, having to spend an extra year in high school. The frustration of seeing their friends move on into a new life at university while they remained behind was difficult.
Shortly after the school year began the pressures of their plight overtook their rationale. Musings about a fantasy road trip to visit a friend in Florida became a silly but interesting concept. They thought Adam’s old Volkswagen could survive such a trip from, Edmonton Alberta Canada to Orlando Florida. They had a few dollars in their pockets — thirty-seven to be exact — and although they knew it wasn’t enough, if they could scrape together a few more, they’d probably be able to make it. Thoughts of such an adventure was an emotional release, but would they really take the plunge.
The more they joked about it, the more the enthusiasm grew.
Then, an unexpected meeting with a school friend pushed them over the edge. The trip was to become a reality.
It’s a fun read—a Tom Sawyer adventure, into a racially plagued American south of 1963, filled with — police encounters — racial conflicts — murder — jail time — and more. A lifetime of memories . . . if they survive.
