As children of the 1980’s (we know — we’re old) we LOVED reading choose your own adventure books. For anyone who missed the Regan/Bush years, those were these books told in the 2nd person format that allowed you, the reader, to choose different outcomes for yourself. The author sent you to different pages of the book depending on the choices that you made, and the outcomes were different every time you read it.
Here’s an example:
You wake to the sound of singing in your house. It’s a pleasant song, but a language that you’ve never heard before and the voice is not one that you recognize. The singing seem to be coming from your kitchen. You walk down the hallway from your bedroom and see that your parents are still sleeping. What do you do next?
Turn to Page 50 to wake your parents
Turn to Page 13 to explore the sounds in the kitchen
Okay, so we’re clearly not children’s authors but you get the picture – it’s a story told where YOU get to decide the outcome as you read.
We decided that would be a fun way to plan a trip and travel, so for the next few weeks, we want YOUR help in choosing an adventure for us!
Where we go, what we do there and most of the trip details will be decided by YOU, the Robe Trotting community.
HERE'S HOW IT WILL WORK
We have two long weekends planned for our mystery adventures! We will each be in organizing the trip with YOUR influence.
In case you missed our launch on Facebook Live – Derek will be coordinating the first trip. This means he will send you a survey with at least 3 possible destination options. (dates below) Read his insights and then select the destination you want to see us go to.
He will follow that email up with another survey of what to do in that destination. It could be a launching point for a road trip, we could take a train to the countryside or do a city break in that destination – IT’S ALL UP TO YOU GUYS!
You’ll then have a third email recapping the destination, what we’ll be doing once we’re there and then you’ll decide on the final details: lodging, tours, etc.
We want these whole trips planned by you guys and one of us will be totally surprised by the entire outcome!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR CHOICES
Help us plan these trips! To be a part of the process, we need to send you a survey – that’s how we’re keeping the planning a secret. We need to know where to send the survey, so fill out the form below to make sure you get our survey and can shape our travels!
