Know Before You Go

March 1, 2017

Planning the perfect trip goes beyond knowing whether or not to pack a sweater. Listen as your co-hosts teach you how to “Know Before You Go” with our first ever, on-air game show.

Kick-off the episode with Mike Marich a long-time DreamTrips™ Member, who talks about his love of DreamTrips Local mini-vacations.  The crew introduce the “DreamTripping Tip of the Day” which asks a question about packing for a trip, and despite his co-host, Hannah DeClerk attempting to get the answer, Wayne refuses to budge until the end of the episode.  Wayne also introduces everyone to his rescue puppy Henry, who has contributed to a nice number of sleepless nights for Wayne.   

Today’s Feature
We give Today’s Feature a different feel in the form of our on-air game show, “Know Before You Go!” Hannah is your quiz master with Wayne her announcer as the contestants are given different scenarios in the form of questions and incidents frequently addressed by our favorite travel support team over at Rovia™.

Since a lot of these questions were tricky, and involved statements about Wayne, Hannah made sure to select contestants who are experts in the world of DreamTrips travel and work closely with Wayne and his Muttonchops at our corporate office in Plano, Texas. The contestants, videographer Logan Harris, who also serves as a behind-the-scenes audio engineer for many of our episodes, and DreamTrips™ writer Wendy Leth-Steensen go face-to-face to try to win the ultimate prize – the opportunity to never have to do this again (kidding). Actually, it is bragging rights and a chance to really get to know personal information about Wayne that they can share with others in the office.

Who is the ultimate winner? You will have to listen to find out.

DreamTrips Local’s, a taste of Texas is announced on today’s podcast via pre-recorded clip by Wayne. Listen as he tells you the details of this exclusive member event. Because, everything’s bigger in Texas! We reckon you’ll have a “darn tootin’ time!”

Social Beat
Jason Clayden passes on travel tips pulled from popular travel blogs “Glitter and Spice” and “My Vogue Style”, while Wayne shares his experience with using various airline apps.  Plus, you’ll learn about a new travel trend and what millennials are really going for in their travel plans.  Of course, DreamTrips Local is the subject of discussion as the two chaps speak in their fancy accents and elaborate on what you need to “Know Before You Go!”

Wayne finally reveals the answer to our “DreamTripping Tip of the Day”, which is surprisingly beneficial for all travelers.
