Given the current situation with COVID, not a lot of people will be taking planes or other mass transit anytime soon. The safest way to travel in the foreseeable future will be to RoadTrip in the family car -- or in a RV.
Yesterday we took a little drive. We drove 75 minutes up I-95 from Stamford, Connecticut to New London, Connecticut. RoadSpoke does 2 things: we turn the Interstate into a talking tour -- just as we turn the highway into an endless shopping aisle. Along Interstate 95 we presented you deals and discounts and even cash rewards from our Spoken Road partners. These deals amounted to almost a quarter million dollars. You could Claim a 10% discount on a $200,000 RV from Airstream Campers, a 15% discount on IKon Ski Passes for next ski season, a 20% discount on music and movies from Amazon, a lot of "Buy 1 Get 1" free deals from McDonald's and Dunkins, and of course, a 15% off deal from GEICO's Gecko. All you needed to do was claim these deals and then tell the merchants that RoadSpoke sent you.
In less than an hour we also explored a lot of things that happened along this strip of asphalt. As RoadSpoke's slogan says: “We turn drives into discovery.”
Man, ain’t that the truth!
On my RoadSpoke app -- right where it happened -- we heard about Nathan Hale(“Regret but one life to give for my Country.”, Childe Hassam(American Impressionist), Long Tooth the mastodon(At Yale Museum), blue fish, blue sharks, Taylor Swift, The Knights of Columbus, The U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Hat City, Sybil Ludington and her horse Star, Eli Yale…
…The Connecticut River, Wilbur Cross(Parkway namesake), John Cabot Lodge(Official name of the I-95 in Connecticut), U. Conn’s Lady Huskies, PT Barnum, Tom Thumb, whaling, sealing, harbor seals, aquaculture, culturing marijuana...
…McDonald’s, Wendy's, Walmart, Mobil Oil, Jewish War Veterans, Catholic Charities, Puritan Bigots, Venture Smith …
... coywolves, submarines, Eugene O'Neill, Puerto Ricans, Pilgrims, Pequots, Mohegans, and the biggest Movie Star Katharine Hepburn who lived in the littlest town, Fenwick, Connecticut.
And that was just 20 minutes near New Haven!
No wonder we won the Walton Family’s SCALE Challenge.
CONNECTICUT... still Revolutionary!
