Book Hunters in Brief #100: Road Trips

Think about it: Gilgamesh; Sir Gawain;  Huck and Jim; Sal and Dean; Luath, Bodger and Tao. Road trips have been the makings of stories since the first caveperson gathered some friends around the fire and said, "Wait till you hear this." Why? Because a journey is shaped like a story. By definition, every journey, like every story, has a beginning, middle and end. Likewise, every journey and every story have some sort of conflict--whether that be weathering the elements to reach the top of Mt. Everest or just a long layover in Albuquerque. Bingo! You've got yourself a story, and as readers and travelers alike know: getting there is way more than half the fun.
