One More Day Everywhere: Crossing 50 Borders on the Road to Global Understanding

In November of 2001, Glen Heggstad decided to ride his motorcycle to the tip of South America. His journey was interrupted when he was kidnapped at gunpoint by Colombian rebels and held captive for five weeks. Yet even after his traumatic incarceration, Glen did what few others would – finished his trip. 

Three years later, frustrated by the climate of fear in a media-saturated world and the resulting stranglehold of self-imposed security in the U.S., Glen decided to look for truth on his own terms – on the back of his motorcycle. Once more the “Striking Viking” left the comforts of California as an unofficial emissary with his own message to the world: We are not afraid and we refuse to hate. 

Starting in Japan, Glen wound his way through Siberia, Mongolia, Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, and Africa, stopping in over 30 countries. This was not a tourist’s bus tour – Glen battled extreme temperatures, knee-deep mud, bureaucratic roadblocks, health problems, and loneliness, but these problems faded to insignificance with the thrill of the open road and the smiling receptions he received from locals and fellow bikers at every turn. 

With One More Day Everywhere, readers can share Glen Heggstad’s vision of a world ungoverned by fear and, like Glen, embrace each experience, with one eye always on the horizon.
