In a whimsical trip to the antipode of Washington, DC, the startled look of an Australian implied wordlessly to the author " I'm a madman to have traveled so far for such a frivolous reason." (p. 45) After reading through the nineteen "lite" travelogues in this volume, the reader asks "Why has Mike Tidwell taken my time to read these accounts?"
