About the Author
has been immersed in road trip culture from an early age. After a three-year stint bumming around the country, making hay in Kansas, sailing boats in Chesapeake Bay, painting houses in Boston, and living in the storeroom of a Manhattan music studio, he returned to California and earned a degree in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley. Rather than get a real job, he then moved to England, where he began to write about America. Jamie is the author of Road Trip guides to the USA, California and the Southwest, and New England. He lives in Northern California, at the west end of US-50.
