Maybe you just hit the jackpot and came up on a "Tony the Tiger" grrrrrrreat idea!
A practical, affordable, fun and exciting adventure "somewhere" is bound to contain valuable fact-based data to start an interesting thread on a
topic of your choosing...the field investigations you mention would be an easy hit for me! I live in between some cactus and palm trees in
ok - so here is me thinking out loud -
....maybe it's a separate mini series airing once a qtr (or every 3 months)
....it could be a quick weekend trip based on - say a contest
....a contest where members who create the most interesting topic, start a thread about it that includes fact-based information containing credible
sources, giving specific details on were to go, who to ask what, and most importantly - what's the story about, how does it relate to the topic and
what's the overall objective sought? What does it impact? How would researching a specific place or group of places, visiting a person or talking
to many people benefit the topic, overall story and satisfy the objective?
...and - Why would it be worth it? The thread could also include a logistics piece from planning to execution. (ex: top trip sites to research and
lists of people to interview based on the topic selected)
...and ofcourse you would need to include an efficient, well laid out prepared agenda - that, wait- yup you guessed it - would be voted on by members
*This is just an idea now but talking about is the only way things go from dreams to reality!
