Troutcation Hiatus

Posted in Uncategorized

This week, and probably next week, I’ll be on hiatus. Why, you ask? Well, the good people at Apple Vacations wanted Mr. Jen and I to check out their service and the Secrets St. James resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. We’ll spend three nights there and report back about Apple Vacations and Secrets St. James and various vacation-type whoo and rahs, in a series of compensated, but objective, posts.

In other words, this is quite a bit like that time I reviewed sunglasses for this blog because it meant I got to keep the sunglasses. And like the time I agreed to wear clothes and jewelry exclusively from ModCloth for the Steve Harvey Show and then I got to keep the entire wardrobe they sent me. I’ll take the free stuff, but I’ll always be honest with you about the product (in the case of the ModCloth thing, I told you the god’s honest truth by looking amazing in their clothes).

Since I have to get many ducks in several rows before I leave, both personally and professionally, and since I will probably be too sunburned to move by the time I get back, I’ll be taking a little break. Expect lots of pictures, and hopefully some great stories about snorkeling.

So, I will return, and when I do, we’ll all be ready for a new Apolonia recap, another chapter of my Patreon serial, and two #LegionXIII posts to make up for the ones I’ll miss.

Have a great couple of weeks, you wacky kids ‘ya.

    You were right I’m hugely happy or you/jealous. How would you say that? Happilous? Jealoppy? Anyway, have the fantastic time I’m sure you will, and when you’re back I’ll post off the parcel we’ve put together.

    Have a great time! I spent a day in Jamaica (part of a cruise stop) and I wish it had been longer.

    OMG – woohoo! Go have fun and report back. I am actually really psyched about this because my old man got a new job that will have a ton of vacation time in the next year or so and we will finally be able to travel. I know you will give us an honest opinion and I look forward to seeing how it goes. I trust you more than most folks so this is ALMOST as exciting for me as it is for you and Mr. Jen. Heh.

    Very few things on this blog make me upset but when I read that we are not getting a post from you for over a week… This girl gets super sad! I check religiously two or three times a day and my excitement meter shoots sky high every new post. But I’m happy you are getting a delightful sounding vacation. Have fun, stay safe and get sunburned.

  9. That’s awesome! Have fun!

    About five years ago, my family (my parents and their adult kids, myself and my brother) went on an Apple vacations trip to Tulum, Mexico, and it was great! Of course, part of the reason it was great was that it was during the swine flu scare, and the resort and all the tours were deserted, but even so it went very smoothly. I hope you have the same experience!
