who we are… 
The Midlife Road Trip is an unscripted, organic, reality-based food, travel and adventure series focusing 
on the experiences of polar opposite travel experts Rick Griffin & Sandi McKenna. Rick is a southerner with a thirst for adventure while Sandi is a northerner who leans towards leisure.  They provide two totally different perspectives on what to see, do and eat in each particular destination along their journey.

Whether it’s meeting amazing people, visiting interesting places, tasting incredible food or crossing items off their bucket lists, Rick and Sandi share their expertise on travel & food and their passion for the fun side of life as they intend to check it all out …before they check out! 

Their inspiration for making the most of every moment is what makes the Midlife Road Trip the perfect Therapy for a MidLife Crisis.
