Q&A: Professional Roadtripper Willie Witte on Why You Should Always Say ‘Yes’ to Pig Wrestling

There’s always an interesting tension we have to deal with during the month of August: a big part of us wants to get out there and live out the rest of our summer in the fabulously spontaneous [and Instagram-able] ways we’d dreamed about all winter!!!   But…realistically, the sweltering heat often makes us turn down fun experiences in favor of sitting directly in front of a large fan and not moving or...

Meet the Road-trippers: Arizona Innovation Roadtrip

When people think of "startups," many minds travel straight to Silicon Valley—either the city itself, or the equally amazing TV show. But as access to tech education and capital spreads, the barrier to entry for startups across the country has been lowered, and as a result, there's been explosive growth in areas that aren't San Francisco, CA. One such area? Arizona, a state whose commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation has attracted tons of new startups,...

Moments from the Road, by the Roadtrip Nation Crew

Today we're rolling out another webisode special from Beyond the Dream, our upcoming documentary about three young adult immigrants—who have only temporary protection from deportation—as they navigate the uncertainty of their twenties…and of their legal status. The newest mini-episode is about a very important—and very messy—part of the Dream Team's daily life on the road: dumping the RV's sewage tanks. To show solidarity, we asked the crew here at Roadtrip Nation to share some of their greatest, weirdest, or...

Operation Roadtrip: The Journey’s Ended, But Their Mission Continues

Every day, America’s service members put their lives on the line to serve their country with pride and courage. But for many, the most formidable mission they’ll face is the transition back into civilian life. This past April, we joined forces with the USO—as part of their Transition 360 Alliance—to send three veterans and transitioning service members on an exploratory cross-country road trip. These three road-trippers, Sam, Bernard, and Helen,...

Follow the Journey of These Women in STEM!

The number of STEM jobs is increasing—but the number of women entering these fields isn’t. We’re on a mission to change that. Studies have shown that women are more likely to pursue and succeed in STEM fields if they see examples of women who already have. That’s why we are collaborating with AT&T, through the AT&T Aspire initiative, to send three young women on the road to seek out and...
