About

Mike’s Road Trip is about discovering those hidden gems of the road and sharing them with other adventurous and discerning travelers. Whether you live vicariously or by example, we will do the exploring, so you can have an adventure!

The road is the page. The experiences are the ink. Next chapter begins in 300 miles.

Launched in early 2010, Mike’s Road Trip began by chronicling the journey of a man who lost his house, sold everything, packed up his Ford F-150 and embarked on a nomadic adventure of a lifetime—to seek new opportunities, to boldly follow a road of uncertainty. Six months later, GotSaga named Mike’s Road Trip the best “Travel Tips” blog for 2010…many accolades have since followed.

Mike’s Road Trip is led by Mike Shubic, a former marketer who turned the lemons of life, and his passion for travel, into a profession. After years of perseverance, Mike has become one of the leading travel bloggers on the planet and is affectionately known as the “Most road tripped man in the world.” Mike is passionate about video content and often speaks on the topic at travel conferences around the globe. With books, T.V. shows and a production company all in the works, Mike relies on his team to help him produce interesting, informative and helpful content that readers will enjoy.

“I’ll never forget the time I veered down a dirt road for a dozen or so miles, ending up at “Bodie,”an extraordinarily well-preserved ghost town.  Or when I went fly-fishing on a rural ranch in Montana that featured a luxurious B&B nestled among acres of rolling hills.  I also recall driving through a majestic valley in remote Colorado and was befuddled to find Gateway Canyons, a resort that typifies luxury and outdoor adventure.  While the visual magnitude of western Colorado is difficult to top, the edibles that teased my palate in the small town of Chalottesville, VA certainly satisfied my quest for amazing cuisine. In pursuit of fun activities, I searched high and low in San Diego to find the ‘one thing‘ that folks must do. — Travel is nourishment for my soul,” Says Mike. 

Road Trips can provide some of the most unexpected discoveries…including awe-inspiring sights, creative cuisine, exciting attractions and adventurous activities that blend together to establish memories lasting a lifetime.

Come along for the ride…experience the adventure of discovery…
