So what do you want to do with your life?
The Roadtrip Nation (RTN) Movement was born from this question, and the idea that hitting the road to meet with inspirational leaders from all walks of life could help people discover their own paths in life. Started by a group of recent college grads whose life-changing roadtrip set this all in motion, Roadtrip Nation has evolved into a National PBS Series, student roadtrip movement on over 400 colleges, three books and a growing online network at roadtripnation.com. Whatever the medium, our goal is to help people discover their own roads in life based on individuality, passion and exploration.
