Eagle Creek Wants You to Quit Your Job and Go Traveling Instead

A few days back, we shared the news that GearJunkie is giving away $5000 to help fund your next adventure. As it turns out, they aren’t the only ones who are looking to send us off on a globe-spanning journey. Travel gear company Eagle Creek is also running a fun new contest designed to get us out into the world, and all you have to do is quit your job. (Okay, not really!)

The new contest from EC is called Quit Your Job, but the idea is all about getting us to use those vacation days and get out to see the world. Many people are simply content to stay close to home, remain shackled to their jobs, or not take that first step towards visiting a destination they’ve always wanted to see. Thanks to Eagle Creek however, you could win a trip to anywhere you want to go, courtesy of G Adventures.

Here’s how it works. Starting in March, Eagle Creek is kicking off the Quit Your Job Tour, with stops all across the U.S. The tour will begin in Los Angeles on March 28, but will also visit a number of other places –– like Chicago and New York City –– as well. Potential candidates are invited to swing by the location of each of the stops and take part in a short, five minute interview that takes place on camera. The interview will ask you about your top bucket list destination, where you’d most like to go in the world. Based on your answers, not to mention how charming you are on camera, you could be in the running for the grand prize, which is a trip from G Adventures. And since that adventure travel company goes pretty much everywhere, there is a good chance you’ll be able to check that dream destination off your list.

The Quit Your Job tour will be taking place throughout the summer, with seven stops currently planned. You can find out more on Eagle Creek’s website, where you’ll also find an array of great travel gear to see you through your adventures. I use several of the companies duffels and backpacks regularly and always love the simplicity, convenience, and durability they bring to the table.

So, where do you want to go? Are you ready to quit your job yet?
