What is a "Bling"?                Who is RAM??            Check out Road Romp '04

The Book

Rough draft chapters of a non-fiction collection entitled:

RAMblings: A Pithy Stream of Cogitations and Ruminations, Digressions and Reflections,

and Observations and Consternations Around and About the U.S.A.

or, as I nicknamed it, before the term got hijacked to mean something else, The Blings.

The book loosely chronicles the Roadrage2000 roadtrip from Rochester NY to Sacramento CA and back. 

Digressions and flashbacks abound as the mind wanders with the passing of the miles....

(Someday, I might even finish the dang thang.)
