Quotes

Eric Saperston: [introductory subtitles] "In the superhighway of life, I find myself in the slow lane, lost, confused and desperately searching for purpose and meaning. When I graduated from college, instead of getting a job I bought a 1971 Volkswagen Bus, took my Golden Retriever, Jack, and set out to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen."

Truly inspirational
1 September 2004 | by Videoguy88See all my reviews

"Are you waking up excited and going to bed fulfilled." This is a

quote from Eric toward the end of the film and it really sums up a

main theme in this film. What are you going to do with the rest of

your life?

To me this film is so much more than a movie, because it really

empowers people to go for their dreams. With so many powerful

stories and interviews in this film you can't help but be moved.

Traveling across the county in a VW bus with Eric's dog, Jack, the

four travelers meet some truly amazing individuals. This is a film

with a lot of substance and should not be missed.
