Roadtrip Nation + Fuel TV Partner for Action Sports Roadtrip this Summer
Costa Mesa, CA – May 8th, 2008 – Roadtrip Nation is partnering with Fuel TV and NowWhat.com to create an episodic roadtrip focusing on the action sports lifestyle and genre, which will follow a team of young adults with a passion for action sports as they connect with the heroes and icons who define this culture.
Roadtrippers will have the opportunity to converse with people in the action
sports industry who will share their stories of how they got to where they are
today. The finished roadtrip will air on Fuel TV’s program ‘The Daily Habit.’
NowWhat.com will provide support for the roadtrip.
Fuel TV is the only action sports cable and satellite network in the United States
producing original and exclusive content, packed with programming spanning the
lifestyle and culture of skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, BMX, freestyle
motocross, wakeboarding and more.

About Roadtrip Nation
In the summer of 2001, recent college graduates Mike Marriner, Brian McAllister and Nathan Gebhard decided to take a roadtrip to discover their place in the world. The idea behind the roadtrip was simple: if you don’t know what to do with your life, go out and talk to people who are doing what they love, and ask them how they got there. They hit the road in a mechanically unsound green RV, and 17,000 miles later had interviewed 85 individuals including the Chairman of Starbucks, Craig Venter – the scientist who decoded the human genome,
Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the director of Saturday Night Live, and many others.
Since then, Roadtrip Nation has evolved into a movement that helps individuals
define their own lives: a PBS television series, three books, an online community,
and a student network on over 350 campuses. Roadtrip Nation’s programs
enable students to hit the road on their own to interview individuals across the
country. In the fall and spring, Roadtrip Nation’s fleet of three green RVs tour
campuses across the country holding grassroots events, film screenings, and
recruiting sessions to empower other students to hit the road and discover their
own paths in life. These experiences are shared online at
