Read full description of the books:
When she was 20 years old, RK decided she didn't want to live a dreary life and so she quit her job packing goods at a warehouse, left her boyfriend and gave away her belongings. With only a blanket, some clothes and a little money, she left the world as we know it to hitchhike and vagabond around four countries in the span of almost five years.
The term "Road Dog" can mean 'to live on the road' and 'a traveling companion'. Not only did RK live on the road with basically a cooking pot, tarp, matches, and a blanket, but along the way, she picked up a Shepard/Lab puppy, named him Jambalaya and he was her traveling companion through Mexico, the Bahamas, the U.S., parts of Canada and Venezuela.
These are the incredible stories of a young woman who discovers herself & the world around her through her radical love affair with the road. She begins her journey traveling amongst the Rainbow family and helping to build kitchens, water supply, seed camp and clean up. A run in with a Mexican cartel, almost getting jumped & beaten by a Los Angeles street gang, catching a ride on a sailboat with no engine to the Bahamas, getting tossed into a Bahamian refugee camp & experiencing student riots in Venezuela are just some of the exciting experiences found in this wild memoir.
Not only is hitchhiking considered an unconventional way to travel, but it is rarer still that this journey was completed by a woman. Jambalaya lived to be a nice ripe age of 12 and passed away peacefully after a grand retirement in southern California.

Read information about the authorAs a kid, I spent a lot of time hiking and rafting. During my teen years I spent 18 months living out in the woods and learned to build cabins, lashing, and other outdoor activities.
These experiences shaped my love of the outdoors. When I was 20 years old, I gave away my belongings and lived "on the road". I hitchhiked in four countries around the Americas, camping and basically living outdoors.
This awesome journey lasted about four years. I learned so much about the world and about my place in the world. It was an amazing experience.
I now live in Southern California where my adventurous spirit still lives on in my entrepreneurial endeavors.
