We are looking for an adventure minded person or persons who would like to take on the task of taking our numerous in-the-field journals and turning them into a readable book.   Loren has many health issues, one of which is dementia.  It is not yet progressed very far, but we need to find that journalist as soon as possilbe.  

The following is a note from Loren to his granddaughter, Kandi Lee .....

     "Kandi Lee, little sweetheart, because Patty all too often leaves herself out of the equation, out of the picture / out of the narrative (which is absolutely 110 percent ludicrous / wrong) and because your grandfather's off the back wall / off the charts journalistics / writing will never ever suffice, cut the mustard / get the job done we are desperately seeking a writer, journalist, co-partner, someone who has the desire and the talent to dig and sift through hundreds of pages of in-the-field expedition journals and tell the whole story of our Roads End to Roads End Expedition. And if you are in any doubt about Patty's contribution to A World Odyssey -The Epic Voyage of the Sand Ship Discovery, then might your grandfather ask you to examine his somewhat questionable track record, there you will find; if not for Patty, your grandfather would still be at it / in over his balding head trying to drive around the world."


           We have long wanted to return to Israel and Jordan with the Sand Ship Discovery and drive the Final

Mile of our Roads End to Roads End Jeep Expedition, A World Odyssey - The Epic Voyage of the Sand Ship Discovery.  Several years ago the border posts between the two countries opened and it is possible to drive from one country to the other.   Please visit our web page, the Final Mile, for all the details and photos.  Also you can search Facebook for The Final Mile - The Last Quixotic Grand Hurrah and click Follow to keep up to date with where we are and what we are doing.
