About Jim Hinckley
Route 66 is our primary focus, but this is Jim Hinckley’s America. So, we work to provide everything that a community needs for harnessing the power of Route 66 as a catalyst for revitalization and economic development. Linked with this are projects that provide travelers with tools for planning adventures on the back roads and two lane highways of America.
Jim Hinckley’s America was born of an epiphany that occurred in 1990. After years of being told that I had a gift for telling people where to go, the decision was made to do so professionally. It began with the writing of feature articles for various publications, and then books (19 to date). Inspiring adventures was quite satisfying but a day job was needed to support the writing habit.
Then I learned that writing, a blog, presentations, and the use of a social media network could inspire road trips AND enable communities to develop tourism that enhanced road trips. These endeavors could also be used to provide struggling authors, artists, and event organizers with a promotional boost. This was even more satisfying but the day job constrained what I do best – telling people where to go.
