Description: After graduating college, Eric Saperston set out on a summer vacation. He took his Golden Retriever, Jack, hopped into a 1971 Volkswagen bus and set out on the road to capture the collective wisdom of our most thoughtful elders. He wanted to interview them and learn from their experiences. Along the way, his trip turned into a modern day Wizard of Oz. When Eric started, all he had with him was a still camera and a journal to document his adventures. As the journey unfolded, he purchased a video camera, picked up three other travelers and they found their way into the homes and hearts of people most of us only dream of meeting. In the end, although the wisdom they found from the elders was compelling, it was their own journeys that brought them the greatest insights. Just like the song says, "Oz never gave nothing to the Tin Man that he didn't already have."
