"When a self-proclaimed Long Island Princess, who never imagined that finding the perfect campground would be more important that finding the perfect pair of shoes, agrees to spend a year touring the United States in a converted bus, hilarity ensues. Orion regales us with Americana of all sorts as she chronicles her journey with laugh-out-loud-funny tales of the many bus mishaps and unusual situations she and her husband encounter in their year on the road. Best of all, though, is watching her transform from a materialistic couch potato into someone her learns to appreciate living life to its fullest.

... Beneath its fun and frothy exterior, you'll find in this wild ride across America's highways and byways a lovely portrait of a marriage that treats its ups and downs with humor and grace."
