Are you ready to GTFO of your house already but travel restrictions, sneezing lunatics, and vaccine passports are giving you stress? Well, now you can travel without leaving home!
The Motorcycle & The Molecule takes you on an international journey, through intentional communities, and into alternative styles of living. Mayan rulers, janky motorcycles and mischievous beavers all make appearances in a tale inspired by an overland expedition through Central America.
More than just a travel novel, The Motorcycle & The Molecule delves deep into the human experience and our desire for connection, reminding us that we are all beautifully flawed, masterpieces in progress.
Dougie Lux is the alter ego of experience designer Douglas Campbell, cofounder of the Los Angeles event series MindshareLA and tech collective Syyn Labs. After a yoga course in southeast Asia left him questioning his existence, Douglas returned to the states and began a three year identity experiment; he changed his name to Dougie Lux, left his flashy life in Southern California and moved up to a wilderness community in Southern Oregon called Trillium, where he learned carpentry and began restoring an old, off-the-grid cabin. In his proudest achievement, Dougie finally settled down enough to write a book; The Motorcycle & The Molecule is a novel about his journey to Oregon and subsequent explorations of Central America during the winter of 2018.
Douglas Campbell lives on as a brand consultant & designer on the West Coast of the United States; Dougie Lux continues to explore his untapped capabilities…while getting away with things that Douglas Campbell would probably never admit to doing.
