Please Vote and Help Me Win a Trip to Costa Rica!


A few weeks I entered to win a two week trip to Costa Rica in a contest sponsored by Nomadic Matt and GAP Adventures. Voting has finally begun and my entry made it to the final round! Please hop over to Matt’s site and vote for me if you think I’ve made a good argument for winning the big prize. There are 15 finalists and I’m #8 on the list.

I noticed that one of the contestants promised in her entry that she would keep her clothes on. I, too, would like to reassure everyone that I will remain fully-clothed throughout the trip. Unless there is drinking involved, then the pants are a maybe at best…

There is also a very good chance that if I go, I will be attacked by a monkey. I’ll take photos.

Thanks for your support!

If you win I shall be SO jealous! But in a NICE way, you know? :-) Retweeted @elkhorninn Good Luck, and for goodness sakes lose your pants at LEAST once! LOL

haha! thanks so much for the support. I’m hoping a monkey will steal my pants — that will tie up the story nicely ;)

Winner should be announced March 10th. If I lose, I may go find a monkey to wrestle anyways…
