Hey Tractor King thanks for posting this here. I can use all the help getting the word I can get.

If anyone has questions about the book please ask away. I'd love to chat about it.

Awesome. I have to get it. I have had an iPad for awhile but have never seen an iPad specific book before. Usually not a reader. But something like this. Very nice.

Do you live in panama or was this a trip you took?

Good for you man. We can talk about the nuts and bolts on facebook, but good on ya for getting it out there. My second novel comes out this week (fiction, but there's plenty of motorcycle love in there). It's a whacky process, but rewarding.

This is a quick read, I only call it a book because I don't know another name for it. The book has over 70 minutes of video in it. You will probably spend more time watching the book than reading it. It looks freaking sweet on the iPad too.

Here is the link to the book in the iTunes store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-...00652119?mt=11

I live in Panama and stay busy going on little trips around the country. Check out my youtube channel I've had some pretty great adventures.

Sorry can't post the links because I'm too new to the forum. Just search for "The Volcán Barú Adventure" in the book section of the iTunes store.
