In all likelihood this will be the last book I write about my adventures and discoveries over the last 35 years. “The Best of One Tank Trips with Neil Zurcher” will be published in June.
(If you want to be among the first to get a copy, you can pre-order the book here. All pre-orders will receive autographed copies.)
If you are looking for a book that simply lists places to go, though, don’t buy this book.
The most-asked question I get is: “What’s your favorite trip?” This book is a lengthy answer. It’s a compilation of my very favorite places, things and events that I found to be interesting and fun and that I think you will enjoy, too.
I skipped over the obvious big “super” attractions because you have probably already heard about them or have been there. What I try to do is direct you to lesser known, hidden away gems in the tourist world that might not attract lots of attention, but are still very worthwhile as a place to visit.
Free is always a good word. I have taken the time to search out some of the very best places in Ohio, and nearby states, like the Air Force Museum near Dayton where you can walk through Air Force One absolutely free. Or, a world-class amusement park in Pennsylvania that still has no gate charge. You just pay for the rides. A metro-park in Ohio where you can ride for free on a miniature steam train. You will find these and others in “The Best of One Tank Trips.” Of course, not everything is free.
I have tried to mix in destinations that my viewers and readers have told me they also enjoyed. Whether it was a slice of real prize-winning home-made pie in a diner in Jefferson, Ohio to a chance to fly on a life-size replica of the first airplane sold by the Wright Brothers in Dayton. I show you where you can sail across tree-tops and crawl through rock caverns. There is even a park in northwest Ohio where you, and the kids, can dig for prehistoric life.
No matter what you like to do on a holiday or vacation, I think you will find something in this book to excite and entertain you.
The book should be in the stores very soon and is available for pre-order right now. I know you are going to like it. If not, tell me.
