'A Rant and a Road Trip' chronicles an alternative holiday, you might say, a heart-on-the-sleeve road trip. Itas not so much about where Brendan OaLeary went, but what he found when he got there and the people he met along the way. This journal covers five weeks spent on the road, drifting from town to town and motel to motel, living out of a suitcase and, for the most part, never knowing where the next stop will be. But believe it when OaLeary tells you that it can be a very liberating experience, seeing aanother town, another diner, another motel, a the story continuing as he travels to new places. Nothing can beat the feeling that comes from unexpected discoveries made while traveling. As you travel through the pages of this journal, youall see what OaLeary sees and feel what he feels. From New Jersey to Texas to California, OaLeary shares his thoughts about the places he visits and the people he meets. Written as very personal journal entries, OaLeary examines the essence of America through his experiences and shares the ups and downs of living life on the road.Just as I finished the last line of that poem, the picture on the right hand side of my screen was of the Sphinx in front of the Luxor Hotel, in Las Vegas. ... APU (as per usual), I bought some fridge magnets for myself and for my sister, Anne. Oh, how ... What if the snow sticks, making it more difficult to leave town in the morning?
