Joining me today is someone who fell in love with biking in the city of Detroit, who enjoys being (and peeing) outdoors, and who is on a two-year bike trip from Alaska to the southern tip of Argentina, Chris Haag from ThePlacesIPee.com.

Ever sat at your desk and wondered what adventure could be out there for you? Daydreaming about that “one big trip”?
Leon McCarron did.
He had a yearning to bicycle across the United States for as long as his savings could support him. No one wanted to go with him, so he did it alone.

Today Leon joins us to talk about his new book, The Road Headed West, along with some of his other adventures including walking across China for 6 months and crossing through the Empty Quarter with previous podcast guest Alastair Humphreys.
He shares his methods for choosing adventures, how he cuts down on costs and his beliefs that the adventure lies in the unknown.
