Constant Rider Omnibus: Stories From the Public Transportation Front

Constant Rider Omnibus: Stories From the Public Transportation Front

Product Review (submitted on August 5, 2012):
Kate began her zine in September 2000 and this booklet contains the first 3 issues. Issue 1 was my favorite. This one detailed Kate's trip home from Portland, Oregon to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There are so many wonderful stories of the people that she meets. My favorite parts...fruit and customs. Kate doesn't declare her pears on the way into Canada, she eats some and then throws the evidence away. On the way back she declares her orange and is forced to eat it at the border. I also loved the funny description of her Amtrack ride through a barren North Dakota. Kate is a funny gal and a wonderful story teller.

The other issues are about people that Kate meets on the bus that are 'in an altered state of mind while riding' and positive stories of riding the bus. Constant Rider is a great travel zine with a lot of humor.
