The title comes from the moniker of older millennials, and very young Gen X-ers, as the "Oregon Trail Generation" from that popular computer game that we spent all of our elementary school years playing, and that game serves as an overarching metaphor for the book itself. Over 60% of the manuscript has already been written, largely in hours shoehorned in on days off, vacation days, and my sabbatical, and I really do think it contains some of my best writing to date already.
TL, DR version: I'm writing a book that I'm very passionate about. It'll be published next September, not long after I (hopefully) also complete my doctoral thesis and degree. I'll be accomplishing a lot in 2018, and I am determined to make that year my annus mirabilis.
