How to Use a Runaway Truck Ramp
Author Shawn Smucker was a guest on this week's WSIRN. I met Shawn Smucker and his wife Maile while they were on an epic cross-country road trip with the whole family, in a big blue bus named Willie. If that sounds like interesting reading, this is the story of that experience (and the title is NOT just a metaphor.... it still freaks me out to remember reading about his experience in the Tetons).
How to Use a Runaway Truck Ramp tells the true story of the 10,000-mile, cross-country adventure my wife, four children and I recently took in a big, blue bus named Willie. We were excited for the trip of a lifetime but had no idea how much the journey would change us.
“Like all epic road trips, Shawn & Maile’s story covers as much interior mileage, from one state of mind to another, as their big, blue bus does the physical miles across the United States. This book is many things: a travelogue, a parenting manual, a spiritual narrative. But most of all, it’s an engrossing tale told by two wise and thoughtful writers. Don’t read it if you’re not prepared for the oncoming wanderlust.”
