Ben Carlin wanted adventure, and he wanted it bad. He mined for gold in his native Western Australia, but that didn’t go so well. He enlisted in World War II, hoping to be a hero and dispose of bombs—instead, he won the less sexy task of repairing latrines. At the age of 35, fearing his chance at glory was running out, he decided to circle the globe in an amphibious vehicle—with his new bride, Elinore, as co-captain. Embark on a rousing tale of a honeymoon (and a marriage) that had a hard time staying afloat.
