R international lines mounting a stealth mission to steal Nacho back from a deranged Colombian auto dismantler or clinging to the side of a vegetable truck while descending a foot Andean pass there seems to be no limit to the predicaments that these two can get themselves into With Drive Nacho Drive the Van Ordens deliver a thoughtful hilarious and mouthwatering depiction of adventure and misadventure on the Pan American highway one that will leave you simultaneously shaking your head and holding your sides while asking yourself isn't there to life than this. This is the memoir of a couple s drive from Arizona to the southern most tip of South America in their VW van which they named Nacho All the while you re reading you wonder what they could have possibly been thinking to take on such an endeavor But in the end their reasoning becomes as clear as a Patagonia lakeThe self publisher in me only gives this book 2 stars It is loaded with typos and missteps of grammar and syntax greatly in need of an editor As a writerreader however I give it 6 stars Which makes it a 4 Star book I did that in my head It s an engaging funny and poignant adventure shared by real people You d be remiss not to get to know them

On an afternoon just like many before it Brad Van Orden sat at his desk When a coworker meandered past his window Brad succumbed to an impulse and blurted out the most outlandish thing he Drive Nacho PDFEPUB or could think of Hey Steve let's drive your hippie bus to Tierra del Fuego This prompted Steve's halfhearted response I don't think so But this got Brad thinking What if we just dropped everything and left Isn't there to life than this He messaged his wife with a uestion Want to do this to which she immediately responded Yes They clearly had no idea wha. I felt that the book was written by people who traveled but somehow did not fully bond with the world that they traveled through There were instances in which they could have dug deeper and explained the economics of the places that they visited and even listed statistics to create a much deeper understanding They however avoided doing this for the most part and instead focused on the traditional travel log style of writing I think that there were some pretty memorable moments but they are also hampered by slow monotonous talk The author had a fascinating struggle with fishing but never once thought to interact with locals on a deeper level regarding the matter The book is also heavily written by the male traveler Brad and seems to include Shana I believe that s her name sparingly I am curious to see what things they do on the next leg of their trip but cannot help shaking the feeling that this is a very forgettable book in the long term

    This travel book is not for me as one who enjoys learning about people and places visited other than the authors their friends and their biographies I prefer travel books that teach me about people and places I most likely won't have the pleasure of meeting Also I do not have any interest in a plot line that is pretty much how to repair a VW bus in a foreign land In short this would have pleased me if it had been about the people
