In the summer of 2001, Mike, Brian, and Nathan faced the end of college with the realization that, like many college students, they had absolutely no idea what to do with their lives. Their solution: Take a Roadtrip and interview people from all walks of life to learn how they got to where they are. Their mode of transportation: A clunky, 31-foot green motor home. Three months and over 17,000 miles later, they'd met with bookstore owners, filmmakers, CEOs, and more than 80 other inspirational Leaders who had found their Open Roads.
Originally released in Starbucks stores across the country, this book chronicles the Roadtrip of East Coast students Mike, Randy, and Ryan as they traveled across the Western United States in the summer of '03. Featuring a Road Journal kept by one of the students, this book highlights the stories of an eclectic list of Leaders from across the country— from the founder of Sub Pop Records to author Jane Smiley. Features an RV Gallery section that gives readers a feel for life inside the big Green RV.
Roadtrip Nation's first book, showcasing of the 30 best interviews from the Original Roadtrip, has been updated to include new interviews from Roadtrip Nation: Season Three. It details the beginnings of Roadtrip Nation, from the green paint and first cold-calls to the present day Movement. Each interview includes back-stories on how the interviews were booked and the effect the Leaders had on the students. Includes tips on how to hit the road and interview Leaders you admire.
