We are driving across the country with a goal: to find out and creatively relay the answer to our question of how actively Americans exercise their power of choice. We will interview three generations: twenty-somethings, fifty-somethings, and seventy-somethings.
In meeting and interviewing our fellow Americans, we will determine who utilizes their power of choice most, and how? What do Americans base their decisions on - family, upbringing, or passion? How much do location and beliefs influence the decision making process?
Ultimately, we are looking for developments and changes in American thought processes and consciousness over the last half-century. We will talk to experts on the subject, and especially focus on the individuals throughout the country who are making these decisions daily. We will find out whether our younger generation is seeking passion or success, and how they are doing so. We will find out if and why people residing in the land of the free actually feel free, or if they feel stifled and restricted.
We plan to publish a book upon return - a compilation of our own handwriting, typed and printed word, as well as photos documenting our findings. But we need YOUR HELP! Any support is greatly appreciated.
Thanks kickstarters, for making our vision a possibility!

Well, there is going to be a juxtaposition of two journeys - both our internal and external experience while on the road. We will interview individuals and transcribe those interviews via typewritten word, printed word, or handwritten writing depending on several variables. These interviews will be anything from full length, to just excerpts or quotes used to tell our story. We will also keep an ongoing journal of our internal responses to the trip, and much of that will be handwritten. In addition, we will be diligently documenting via photograph - both digital and film - and also video recording. In our written publication, we will use our written work, printed documentation and photographs. We will also produce a short film upon return from our video footage.
