    Dan Carlman's difficult journey across the U.S., on a seemingly deliberately slow device, granted him time to self-reflect and focus on the why and how's of, not just life, but in what way one may live out that life in the context of community. We get wrapped up in our pursuits, passions and what’s going on in our own lives (not to say it's not important), yet I would recommend and encourage folks, especially those who know Dan, to take the time to read Changing Things Up. We've all had and will have challenges and trials in life. These metaphorical intersections along the author's path found him asking for guidance, having a longing for fellowship with people, seeing them in meaningful ways...are we it random or is there always a presence with us? The path is a process but to live and die and never ask why is something Dan's destiny declines to do.

    To say that Dan Carlman faced some dramatic changes in his life sitting down would be partially true. Facing post-retirement adjustment and a lengthy rehabilitation thanks to several accidents, Dan decided to purchase a recumbent tricycle, one of those three-wheeled machines that looks like the skeleton of a La-Z-Boy chair, ride it solo from Washington state to Washing-ton, D.C., and during the process try to figure out what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. The ride was always slow, sometimes hot, often boring, but the retelling is not. Thoughtful, introspective, and told with an honest voice, this is more than a travel journal. It’s the story of a man “changing things up,” one pedal revolution at a time. Sitting down.  Chandice Johnson, Retired Founding Director, NDSU Center for Writers

    The thrill read and ride of a life. Author Dan Carlman hit it home. Do you plan accordingly or wing it? Written on his reflection of lives conditions, memories, patience, friendships and emotion. When does the going get tough? A must read. A true example of how life is always changing. Good for any age. Time travel into the life of one man's experience in the wilderness on a trike ride across America.
