Using humor and history to connect people with their passions, American explorer and National Geographic author Gary McKechnie has traversed his homeland by bus, car, rail, and motorcycle in an attempt to unravel the mystery of the bold and unusual experiment known as the United States of America.

The two-time winner of the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award -- recognized as the Pulitzer Prize of travel writing -- brings his background as a stand-up comedian and improv actor to the stage in presentations that inspire audiences of all ages and nationalities through tales of American determination, ingenuity, creativity, courage, faith, and patriotism. McKechnie's unique style of 'motivational storytelling' has been shared at corporate conventions, travel trade shows, libraries, panel discussions, civic clubs, and at sea aboard the Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria, where he is a popular member of the Cunard Line's prestigious Insights Series; sharing with international audiences stories that were born in the USA.

A two-year long nationwide road trip was essential in creating his acclaimed book, National Geographic's USA 101, a cultural and historic look at 101 of the nation's iconic events, festivals, and pastimes, and was the follow-up to his award-winning, best-selling book Great American Motorcycle Tours, for which he saddled up for a 30,000 mile cross-country trek to create 25 back roads tours that highlight charming towns, historic sites, intriguing attractions, and wonderful restaurants. Now in its fifth edition and with sales of more than 100,000 copies, McKechnie knows his nation and will captivate, motivate, and inspire your audience with stories he's learned On the Road...
