Todd Blubaugh quit his job in pursuit of adventure on the open road. His long-planned trip criss-crossing the nation was meant to be an escape and an opportunity to forge a new existence while pursuing his twin passions for photography and motorcycle culture. With the passing of Todd’s parents only days before his expected departure, his journey took on unanticipated gravity. All told, Todd spent six months on the road, touching down in various U.S. cities during his transcontinental trip. His time spent traveling marks a personal sea change, and a period of great self-discovery. Too Far Gone is the photographic and anecdotal account of his experiences, presented through short vignettes as well as personal letters and artifacts. Threads of human experience weave throughout the text, presented in Todd’s compassionate voice and providing the reader with deep access to every detail of his trip, from the fine points of motorcycle culture to the deeply personal stories he encountered along the road. Too Far Gone breaks with the traditional motorcycle adventure narrative, joining mixed media pieces with a compelling story to create an engrossing visual experience.
Must have for any motorcycle enthusiast, and anyone who loves adventure and life with all ups and downs of daily living. Photography in this book is first class as well along the text and all other surprises inside. Wonderful gift I gave myself.
First, great service from Tellason. I received my package in just a few days with a personal thank you card which was a very nice touch. The book itself is wonderful, very well put together and very high quality. The photography in the book alone makes it worth picking up, but the writing is very enjoyable to read. Thanks to Tellason for helping get this book out!
