Life on Easy Street: Leung and Klausen Meet and Greet
One of my favorite travel essays begins, “Beware thoughts that come in the night.” I imagine a similar moment of clarity when Jason Leung conjured up his ambitious plan to follow his favorite band across his homeland during Pearl Jam’s 2005 Canadian tour. I’m sure any good fan has had this fantasy but Jason and a revolving cast of like-minded misfits actually had the audacity to go out and do it. Lucky for the rest of us, Jason documented the whole trip in his self-published book This All Encompassing Trip so we might come along for the ride and live vicariously through him. As it turned out, that initial experience was the catalyst for a series of events that literally changed the trajectory of his life. Extending to multiple tours and places abroad, Jason's book really captures the fan experience. But more than just recounting the specifics of each show, it's about life on the road and the people you meet along the way - and the inward journey of self-discovery.
