Joining me today is someone who once tried to sail from Norway to France and failed, who decided to ride a bike 5,000 miles from Alaska to Mexico but didn’t know how to change a tire, and who has gotten lost, stuck, and confused in more countries than he can count, Otto Ecroyd, author of Northbound and Down
