Jack Kerouac’s On The Road Turned Into Google Driving Directions & Published as a Free eBook

Gregor Weichbrodt, a German college student, took all of the geographic stops mentioned in On the Road, plugged them into Google Maps, and ended up with a 45-page manual of driving directions, divided into chapters paralleling those of Kerouac’s original book. You can read the manual — On the Road for 17,527 Miles— as a free ebook. Just click the image above to view it online (or click here). Likewise, you can purchase a print copy on Lulu and perhaps make it the basis for your own road trip. Wondering how long such a trip might take? Google Maps indicates that Kerouac’s journey covered some 17,527 miles and theoretically took some 272 hours.

“Our journal is excited to be looking for, and publishing, experimental and all other forms of poetry. Whether telling the story of a young Iranian man trapped in a web of love with a Welsh Paramedic, spurting dadaist verse, or quite simply anything your poetic heart creates, you are very welcome to submit.”
