About me

Howard Blount is founder and editor of the travel web site Backroad Planet. He has traveled internationally since boyhood and lived abroad in Mexico, Chile, and Paraguay. Now his passion is navigating the roads-less-traveled of this amazing planet in search of anything rare and remote. Howard is a writer, consultant, and has published with major houses such as Simon & Schuster and McGraw-Hill. Howard writes primarily for Backroad Planet, his road trip, fly-drive, and cruising travel blog. Backroad Planet promotes the philosophy that taking scenic routes, scouting offbeat sites, stopping at roadside attractions, and getting immersed in local flavor are the best ways to travel. Active daily on social media, Howard through Backroad Planet has a combined organic following of 102K+ and a Klout score of 70. Howard loves participating in press trips and other forms of sponsored travel, and he welcomes opportunities to work with travel brands, CVBs, DMOs, and tourism boards.
