A man, his motorcycle, and the open road.
When Dan Matthews christened his motorcycle "Zookymoon," he had no idea at the time where their travels would take them. But when adventure called, it ultimately led them from the small town of Tupelo, Mississippi, as far north as the Arctic Circle and finally as far south as the tip of South America, every mile bringing unexpected and entertaining situations along the way.
More than a travel memoir, Zookymoon is the true story of how one man's thirst for adventure and the love of his motorcycle brought about the trip of a lifetime-with comments from Zookymoon herself thrown in for good measure.
I am thirty-one years old with a degree in history from the University of Southern Mississippi and a master's degree in history from Mississippi State University. I live in Tupelo, Mississippi. I wrote these stories about Dan Mathews because, according to friends and family, it was past time for his craziness to be written down.
