A little while back, I had the pleasure to edit the riveting tale of one young man who had achieved the American dream, only to realize it was not his American dream.
He worked hard through college and got a good job as a programmer with a Fortune 500 company. Things were fine. But he didn’t want to settle for fine—he sought adventure, excitement and a life that would never stopped inspiring him.
He paid off his debts, saved up his money, did his research, quit his job and bought a one way ticket to South America. He then spent the next 2.5 years climbing mountains, biking down the world’s most dangerous road, canoeing a river up the Amazon and so much more.
That’s man’s name is Dan Perry. He is a Madison local (via a few other Midwest locales) who currently lives in China. He will be in town this weekend and I figured what better time to highlight this awesome guy and his exciting book!
Check it out on Amazon today (the other Amazon). And if you ask real nice while he’s still in the area, I bet he’ll even autograph it for you. In the meantime, check out his website, where he continues to blog about his many great adventures.
