Steve Belkin sends me a note to let me know that the next Competitours trip is a go for July 23 through August 1.
Last Spring Conde Nast‘s Wendy Perrin featured Competitours on her blog, it’s “the Amazing Race” for the rest of us, with mystery itineraries and challenges and competition against other teams.
Here’s how Steve describes the variety of teams that are already signed up:
from iowa, michigan, florida, saskatchewan, texas, california, missouri; father/son, mother/daughters, married couples, best friends, sisters; from mid 20s to early 60s in age
There’s a maximum of 17 slots. Steve’s a good guy, and he’s confident enough in his product that he only asks for payment after the trip. And he’ll even book award tickets for you with your miles to reduce your travel costs.
So if this is your kinda thing, it’s worth jumping on.
