    Leaving from western Washington, to pedal over mountains and through plains, this author completes his 80 day arduous trek across the country, eventually to ride the last miles with his son into Washington D.C. Carlman’s tricycle ride took considerable mental determination and planning. He receives on going updates by those following on social media, and takes the reader through his deliberations as he adjusts his prearranged charted course. The adventure is written in a friendly, easy to read style of goal setting and achievement, adventure, challenge and reflection. As he cycled unaccompanied, the author shares his thoughtful appreciations of many valued relationships. A reader will welcome Carlman’s dedication and process to arrive upon finishes of real importance.

    Dan R Carlman's book Changing Things Up A Tricycle Journey Across America is a very good read for anyone needing inspiration in their life. As a avid cyclist and a Recumbent rider who has log over 10,000 miles and ridden across America myself, Dan's story even inspires me. For someone to take on such a physical adventure and persevered at his age and with his health issues truly should make anyone that reads this book feel that they just have to try a little harder with what ever troubles them. Dan reminds us that it's not how strong you are or how fast you are but that you get up every day and face the next challenge.

    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

    From the first pages, I couldn't put this book down. I felt like I was traveling across the country with him. What an adventure! It's easy reading but deep, and it gives a glimpse of a man who made the adventure of a lifetime and the impact that adventure has had on him to this day.
