      For nine years I traveled Europe and worked as a ski instructor in the Bavarian Alps. I got drunk on Romanian moonshine in Turkey. I got picked up by a blind Ukrainian while hitch-hiking in Germany. I found myself juggling naked for a crowd in Greece. I skied over one hundred days each season and learned to become a truly bad-ass skier. But the really outrageous thing about my story is that if you're an American tax payer, I did it all on your dime.
     AFRC, Armed Forces Recreation Center: How I Spent Your Tax Dollars on Lift Tickets and Beer--based on the exploits of Kris Barber while he worked at a US military recreation site in Germany--is the hilarious story of how an impromptu trip to Europe became a nine year traveler/ski bum lifestyle. Along with his new friends, a rag-tag group of travelers also working at the recreation site, Kris encounters (among other things) explosive beer, an asshole of enormous proportions, a malevolent border crossing bathroom, an army of drunken demons, and through it all he learns to become a great skier with the help of a Zen-spewing ski guide.
     His travels can only be described as MASH meets Animal House. Part travel story, part spiritual journey, part how to ski like a bad-ass guide, this book follows in the footsteps of writers like Bill Bryson and Tucker Max.
