For those of you who have been following Jedidiah Jenkins’ epic bicycle journey from Oregon to Patagonia on Instagram for the last year, you can now contribute to the novel chronicling his journey through a Kickstarter campaign.

The 16 month journey will be documented in the autobiographical account, as will other personal details about the author. Inspired by greats like John Steinbeck and Jack Kerouac, Jenkins’ adventure is not only about self-discovery but about building community and sharing stories. Described as his life’s dream, ‘Oregon to Patagonia: Novel of a Journey’ is ‘On the Road’ for modern times and "a transformative and transitioning generation." By combining exploration and the internet (by appropriately seeking funds via a crowdfunding platform), this pioneering poet will hopefully be finishing this bike touring chapter in 5 months.
