This largely autobiographical work, written as a stream of consciousness and based on the spontaneous road trips of Kerouac and his friends across mid-century America, is often considered the defining work of the postwar jazz-, poetry-, and drug-affected Beat Generation.
Sal Paradise, the narrator of On the Road and the character identified as Kerouac's alter ego, is a literate keeper of American culture.
Sal’s aversion to commitment and duty ensure that he does not hold this job for long, and he is soon on the roadagain, where he meets one of his biggest temptations.
I had been on the road for nearly two weeks prior to my arrival in the Yukon Territories, and at the tender age of 46 it was my first major overland motorcycle trip.
Go off the Alaska Highway and most roads are well-maintained gravel highways, and it was refreshing to cruise 60-80 mph on dirt or pavement without the pucker factor associated with riding single-purpose machines on the wrong surface.
This meant that I was on the road off and on from May to September, and it is not a travel method I recommend.
