Across America by Motorcycle: recreating CK Shepherd's epic 1919 cross-country trip Featured

Mark HunnibellIt’s a dynamic traveling feat by anyone to journey across nearly 5,000 miles of American road, but imagine doing so completely alone in 1919, riding a four-cylinder Henderson motorcycle on dirt roads with no GPS and no previous travel in the American landscape?
British Royal Air Force Captain Charles Kenilworth “C.K.” Shephard explored miles of territory on his trip across America outlined in his book Across America by Motor-Cycle, published in 1922. Nearly 100 years later, United States Air Force Captain Mark Leslie Hunnibell retraces C.K.’s path in his own book. With annotations and updates, anyone with a wanderlust to follow C.K. Shepherd’s original adventure can now do so with the benefit of additional 250 photos and illustrations, 750 detailed notations, and thoroughly researched facts to fill in the gaps of the original story. In addition, the centennial book includes many photos by C.K. Shepherd never seen before, plus a foreword by his son.

This summer, nearly 100 years later, Mark will be retracing C.K. Shepherd’s original journey on his own vintage 1919 Henderson four-cylinder motorcycle in an exciting trip that will be shared to the world via social media including Facebook Live, drone video and to newsletter subscribers. Also, Mark has planned stops along the trip of over 4,500-miles for book signings, media appearances, rallies, and events. 

Would you be interested in sharing information about Mark’s upcoming cross-country trip? Mark is also available for interview.
