This was also a suggestion from the marketing department except they just said, It's Not Like They Claimed. This is all on the right track though.

Scratch my picture with Arabs idea.

The shot of you alone during the sunrise (picture 396) is great. It conveys contemplation about all that you have learned while looking out over a foreign landscape.

OK, the choices of pics should be:
175; 298; 584; 999. With the top 2:
385;



1102:



And you already have the title: EarthRide.

And you truly are inspirational!! Keep it up, can't wait for EarthRide to come out.


Oh ya, and I'm gunning hard for the Birthday Suit book!

I got your book Glen, it what an amazing story!!
So well written, one of my favorite parts was "Attack" when you were on your way down in Mexico. Your a poet!

Any chance I can get those passwords? I tried every combination I could think of.

I like "One More Day Everywhere".

Great pics. I have some of the same shots. In a quick look through the pictures on this link, I noticed one that I am in and one that I took of you with your camera. Good times, good times................

The title has to say what the book/story is about, which is basically what I discovered along the way by experiencing so many locals debunking media myths: Governments may not get along but people do. This thought has to be rephrased into a catchy title. Although scoring a little tail along the way was an interesting byproduct of the journey, this was not written about nor the primary theme.
I think your title has already been written. It's all embedded in this thread.

Thumb +1 for Raycj's idea

I like Raycj's title and cover. I think it capture everything you found, and what your publishers are looking for.

Yeah, I'd buy it, even if I didn't know the back story.

I was going to suggest 1102, 778, and 882 until I saw the thing Raycj came up with. Nevermind. Just use it.
