    Roadtrip Nation [#1103H] It's A Journey - Not A Destination Against a backdrop of sweeping sand and swaying palm trees, the road-trippers make their way to Palm Springs to interview NASA engineer Adam Steltzner. Adam boasts an impressive resume that includes directing the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars, but describes an unlikely sequence of life events that led him to where he is: He was a terrible student in school, isn't sure whether he graduated high school, and spent years as an aimless musician without even knowing the Earth rotated on an axis! A fateful night looking up at the stars eventually kindled his interest in science, but his circuitous path teaches the road-trippers that it's always possible to alter your trajectory.
    Later, in Taos, New Mexico, the team meets with Sherry Grathler, a river guide who backed out of a career in law to pursue the outdoors. Sherry discusses the challenges of defying societal expectations, and leads the road-trippers through a whitewater rapid excursion down the Rio Grande that teaches them the importance of going with the flow of life. Later, the road-trippers find themselves pleasantly outside their comfort zones with a festive Fourth of July celebration deep in the heart of Texas.
