To say I write about road trips would be like saying Mark Twain wrote about life on the Mississippi River. I am passionate about road trips but it’s not just a career; it’s also a way of life. My name is Jason Barnette. I live my life one road trip at a time and share it through travel photography and blog posts on this website. Grab yourself a coffee and let’s go for a drive!
