Mystery Weekend

We periodically see a high school classmate of mine. He and his wife own the RV service center where we have work done. This week he shared something that he and his wife do and we thought this was a super neat idea.

This year is their 40th year of marriage. They decided to celebrate their marriage all year long. They came up with "The Mystery Weekend." One weekend a month one of the two (they alternate months) comes up with some place to go away to for the weekend. I think they try to stay within 3-4 hours of home. That person plans the entire weekend, where to go, where to stay and they have some idea of what they want to do in the area they have chosen. When work is over on Friday, bags are put in the car, GPS coordinates are set, and off they go. The "surprised" person does not know the destination until they arrive. Now, how cool is that? I think that is a neat idea. Since this was the wife's weekend, he didn't know where they were going, but he was excited just anticipating a fun weekend.

I can see "Mystery Weekends" in our future. . . just sayin'

Till next time. . .

That sounds like such a great idea!

But I know every time it would come for ME to plan it, I would always chose camping!

Well, since we travel full time, I thought our weekend would have to be sitting still for a couple days. hahahah. I'm with you, though. We would be camping somewhere! Course, that would work as well.
