The Road Always Leads West

A new book about the call of the American West,
the power of the open road, and finding yourself…

Brought to you by Desk to Dirtbag, and the bestselling author of Big Travel, Small Budget.

After losing my job, I set out on a journey of discovery. To see where the road would take me, what I would find, and what would happen when time was mine alone instead of the 9-to-5’s.

I could have never imagined where the road would take me in the end…

About the Author
The Road Always Leads West


Facebook Twitter

Ryan is an author, adventurer, perpetual wanderer, and self-proclaimed dirtbag (but that might not mean what you think). Originally from Seattle, he headed to Washington D.C. where he spent five years working for Congress before heeding the call of the wild. He set out truck camping to road trip across the American West, and then across all of Central America and South America. When he isn't on the move, you can find him living as an expat in Colombia. He is also the author of the best selling book: Big Travel, Small Budget that will help you travel more for less. Follow the adventures on social media or read more.

The Road Always Leads West

“I wasn’t sure what I was looking for when I set out. I wanted to see what it would look like when every day was the weekend. No bosses. No deadlines. No Monday morning alarm clock. When you trade the stability of a secure future for an endlessly changing horizon. For dusty roads, for desert sunsets, for skylines that go on forever. Where you can see everywhere, and yet see nothing and no one all at once.

“What is it about the open road that calls to us? Begs us to travel forward beneath a sky awash in pink and gold as the last sliver of sun dips below? Those vast empty spaces just waiting for you to fill them, like a pen on an empty page, with your own stories, with your own adventures. I wanted to find the answers to questions that I didn’t even think to ask when I left. But most of all, I wanted the freedom and the possibility of the open road.”
