About me…….

I am going on 3 years of retirement from the transportation industry. I grew up in Cushing, Oklahoma, and moved to Portland, Oregon after college.
I have a beautiful wife, Suzie, and 3 grand kids in SE Portland. My good friend Steve Trinkle has helped me with touring over the years, and I foolishly feel that I can do this trip.

I plan on meeting some family and friends along the way. If you are wanting to meet me – check the calendar and send me an email jake@grubbswest.com. Or call me at 918 321 0099

This trip across America by bicycle will begin May 2 with my flight to Williamsburg, Virginia.

This trip is with the Adventure Cycling Association, and I’ll be traveling with about 11 others from many places.


In the San Juan Island on Orcas Island in NW Washington.
