Revolving around the antics of two friends, Myron and Eugene, the saga unfolds as the two decide to take a car trip across the United States and back to their beloved San Francisco. Myron has attached a video camera to the dashboard, and plans to film the trip so that the can enter the results into the "San Francisco Annual Film Festival". Incidentally, the car has been hooked up with a large passenger airplane for speed. Through a careful plot, this story dramatizes the duo’s recollections of their childhood, arrival in their favorite city, and their success in the film festival.

About the Author

Six years after being born in Latin America’s bustling, cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Daniel and his parents and younger sister immigrated to San Francisco. Once established there, the Barbary Coast’s mid ‘60s liberal and easy-going lifestyle played a heavy influence, although a consistent diet of super-hero comic books also played a large role in the author’s overall philosophy of life. A portion of the 1980s was spent on the East Coast, where Daniel enjoyed melting into New York City and Boston. Being an avid sports fan and athlete, Daniel also created a popular humor column for his soccer league newsletter. Additional artistic endeavors include a comedy series on Public Access TV. He also performs at a variety of comedy clubs in San Francisco and surrounding areas, in addition to various venues when he performs as the 3-D spectacled, caped character: "Blinky the Rock God". One of his unique talents which he performs on stage, consists of playing virtually any song, from Classical music to Rock ‘N Roll, by simply drumming his cheek using a No. 2 pencil. Daniel was also inducted into the 24th edition of Who’s Who in the East.
