BIO: Jamie Jensen grew up in Southern California back when freeways were new, cheeseburgers cost a quarter, and every beach had a beach-front amusement park. After wasting his early twenties bumming around the country, making hay in Kansas, and ghost-writing a book for the Grateful Dead, in 1990 Jamie Jensen set to work researching and writing Road Trip USA. Since then he’s traveled more than 35,000 miles in search of the perfect stretch of two-lane blacktop. When not crisscrossing the country by car, he rides his bike whenever possible. Jamie lives with his wife, Catherine, and twin boys, Tom and Alex, in Albany, CA, near the west end of I-80.
