    Roadtrip Nation [#1106H] Time to Jump In New York City, the 36-foot RV squeezes through the city's narrow streets, but the team miraculously finds a parking spot. Leaving behind their goliath transportation for a few hours, the road-trippers opt for a new method of travel: the subway. As they explore the city, Manhattan seems larger than life to Ed, whose small-town upbringing in England has never brought him face-to-face with a bustling American city.
    After taking in the sights, the road-trippers meet Staceyann Chin, a spoken-word artist and LGBT rights activist. Staceyann opens up about her rough upbringing, during which she was abandoned by her mother and sexually assaulted. Reflecting on the effects of traumatic life events, Staceyann notes that while these events will always remain a deep scar, they can also be harnessed for positivity. After all, her tumultuous childhood was the impetus that inspired her to move to NYC and discover the outlet of poetry. She encourages the road-trippers to feed their spirits, take risks and take advantage of their youth.
    Inspired by Staceyann's urgings, the road-trippers decide to abandon their inhibitions, act on their impulses and take a "jump" of their own. Driving to the coast, they plunge into the Atlantic and swim around in the pouring rain, soaking up the fleeting nature of the moment.
