In 2013, Luke Foster took the best advice he was ever given: he borrowed a van and toured the United States for four months. Determined to discover the country he had lived in his entire life but had seen only a small portion of, he visited freezing mountains and scorching hot deserts, theme parks and national parks, big cities and small towns, old friends and new, and more than his fair share of Walmart parking lots. And he turned all those experiences and many more into this comic.

In 2013 Cartoonist Luke Foster traveled across the United States for four months writing and drawing a journal/travelogue about his adventures.
