I'm all about the road trips! I wish more pubs would bite on them. They're far more realistic than getting on a plane solo. How many people can leave their spouse and kids at home? And before I had them, I was in my early 20s and too broke to travel.

You're lucky because Europe is so densely packed, so there's so many stories to write in a short distance. In America all the cool stuff is spread out and there is a LOT of nothing in between.

The places I actually want to travel to are such weird, off the radar places that all I'm hoping for is maybe some hotel discounts or VIP upgrades. I'm sure I'm still going to lose money in the long run, but I'm going to travel to these places anyway may as well, you know?

How do you recommend I reach out to places? I'm not looking for huge all-inclusive trips, but ways to offset some of my costs so I don't go completely into the red.

I mean, this system would also save a LOT of time and keep people's inboxes manageable. The whole "Guess what we want to publish!" system wastes thousands of hours a year. Plus I'm not a psychic and I don't know what anyone wants at any given time.

And what if your piece gets killed?!? Honestly I don't see how any of this can be ethical. Would make more sense for editors to hear about the press trips, then contact their favorite writers who they think are best to write about the angles they find interesting.

Being honest, I don't find many things about resort travel interesting. If a place like Toledo, Ohio called me, though? I can think of all the weird shit to write about Toledo!

I've never been invited on a press trip so I have no idea how this works. You just get an email from a place asking for you to come check it out, and then you've got to hit your editors up and hope they see an angle they can run with? What if you can't get a placement?

Things I don't get about press trips: 1. How do you figure out what the story is outside of "look at this resort! It's something, ain't it?" 2. What if everyone rejects your pitches? 3. Aren't all the writers on the trip competing for bylines as is? Who pitches who?

Helping a 6th grader put together this report remains one of the worst experiences of my entire life.

I helped my son do a history project on that back in December. Really deep dive into the materials. Had nightmares for days. The stuff we commonly know doesn't come close to what happened.

I have been craving road trip stuff for YEARS, yet pubs keep sticking with the aspirational stuff. Seriously, it's far more likely people are going to be Googling stuff about getting away for a weekend than for planning one single vacation (if that, even) per year.

Hey everybody the latest episode of The Robicelli Argument Clinic is up, and it features one of the top 5 stories a chef has ever told me. And trust me, I have heard a LOT of stories. We also argue about narwhals, because we're doing God's work.
