The paranoia files (Drive Day 1 minus 14 years and 33 days)

 I’m nerdly proud of my official researcher’s card at the Library of Congress. It’s where I go after work to look up everything ever written about each country along the route of my upcoming road trip down the Pan-American highway. Why? Because my parents did the same trip with no preparation and I became a seven-year-old stowaway through revolutions, coups and civil wars.



I’m dividing my findings into scary shit that happened 1973 and just-as-scary files for 2003. I won’t be caught off guard again.

Follow this bonus-material blog and ride along on a one-year road trip that inspired the memoir The Drive: Searching for Lost Memories on the Pan American Highway. On sale June 13th. Pre order through the buy-the-book links at the bottom of the landing page on my website or here or here. Like The Drive’s Facebook page and tweet back at me @writerteresa.
