TOO FAR GONE
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 providing the reader
with deep access to every detail of his trip, from the fine points of
motorcycle culture to the deeply personal stories he encountered along
the road. Too Far Gone breaks with the traditional motorcycle
adventure narrative, joining mixed media pieces with a compelling story
to create an engrossing visual experience.
