Is that when things get all Mission: Impossible?
Yes, yes it is. Well, sort of. Shortly after you finalize your online transaction, you’ll receive a mysterious envelope in the mail with all of your travel/hotel confirmations. Should you choose to accept the mission -- and why not since, like, you've already paid -- you'll stare at said envelope (dying of curiosity) until the day of your trip. Or, if you’re the type who opened your Christmas presents on December 20th then you've probably already opened it and ruined the surprise. Sooooo, where're you going?
About a week before the trip, you’ll receive an email with your destination's weather forecast destination (but still without revealing the location), a recommended packing list, and a time and place to be if you opted to fly/bus/train. For example, the email would read: “Be at Ft. Lauderdale Airport at 10am, Friday April 15." Whether the email self destructs is anybody's guess. We don't believe it does.
Finally, the big day is here. You go to the appointed place, rip open your envelope, and find out where you’re going! And your immediate reaction is either: "Holy crap, this is gonna be awesome!" or "WTF... do I have to get on that plane?" Pack Up + Go's envelope also includes a curated list of recommendations (from locals) for must-hit bars, restaurants, breweries, museums, activities, etc., although they don't go as far as scheduling everything out, that's up to you. But hey, having a set list of great places is at least better than arguing for an hour while you research best bagel shops on Yelp!.
