Too Far Gone

Todd Blubaugh (Author)


Written with raw emotion just days after the tragic loss of his parents, Todd Blubaugh takes a voyage of American discovery and self-healing on his beloved hand-built motorbike. This compilation of real stories, mixed media and both urban and remote landscape photography tell the story of a man's intuitive understanding of himself and people within their environments.

Todd Blubaugh quit his job in pursuit of adventure on the open road. His long-planned trip criss-crossing the nation was meant to be an escape and an opportunity to forge a new existence while pursuing his twin passions for photography and motorcycle culture. With the passing of Todd's parents only days before his expected departure, his journey took on unanticipated gravity. All told, Todd spent six months on the road, touching down in various U.S. cities during his transcontinental trip.

His time spent traveling marks a personal sea change, and a period of great self-discovery. Too Far Gone is the photographic and anecdotal account of his experiences, presented through short vignettes as well as personal letters and artifacts. Threads of human experience weave throughout the text, presented in Todd's compassionate voice and provide the reader with deep access to every detail of his trip, from the fine points of motorcycle culture to the stories of Todd's life on the road.

"Too Far Gone exemplifies the kind of documentation you wish you'd do when you took a road trip. ... Todd's poetic language and candid photography is therapy in itself for the reader. For anyone seeking to understand man's way of dealing with bereavement, this book is a must." -- Florence Walker "Petrolicious"
"Todd, I just went through the book. I'm broken, humbled, inspired, and in awe. Your words alone are enough to stand on their own. They brought me to tears, made me want to hug my kids, kiss my wife, and not take a second for granted. Then, your images take things to a whole other level...I want to walk into each frame...." -- Adam Fitzgerald, Editor in Chief "Iron & Air Magazine"
