Two Lane Gems is a book series about the Great American Road Trip. Author Theresa L. Goodrich travels the country with her husband, exploring the back roads to find America’s treasures.
Two Lane Gems, Vol. 1: Turkeys are jerks and other observations from an American Road Trip
This fun and uplifting travel memoir is a road trip romp from the Chicago area to San Diego and back. Theresa L. Goodrich grabs her laptop, her camera, and her journal and makes (asks, she means, asks) her husband, Jim, to drive 6,479.5 miles through thirteen states so she can fulfill a childhood dream.
Two Lane Gems, Vol. 2: Bison are Giant and Other Observations from an American Road Trip
In this homage to the Great American Road Trip, Theresa L. Goodrich and her ever-so-patient husband, Jim, embark on a cross-country adventure through the northwest. Departing from the Chicago-area, the couple heads for the Oregon coast with a loosey-goosey itinerary and a bucket of trail mix. Along the way, they meet mermaids and a man named Lizard, escape rattlesnakes (twice), feed horsies and step on the Center of the Universe.
