Ford Explorer Platinum Adventure Tour 2015 #ExploreMore ad

When Ford asked if I’d like to participate in their Explorer Platinum Adventure Tour, I didn’t hesitate for a moment in saying yes. It’s a chance to be among the first to drive this new vehicle and on some of the most stunning roads in the US and Canada. The event started out last week in Vancouver, BC with some of my favorite bloggers participating, and I will tell you that they’ve posted beautiful pictures of the area you’ll want to check out.

They traveled from Vancouver to Kamloops and on to Calgary. Each was given a 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum and the chance to explore the area and choose which sights they’d like to stop and see. Their trips and experiences were varied, but they all enjoyed getting there in comfort and style.

2016 Ford Explorer Platinum Adventure Tour – Join Me September 8-10

Watching their road trip unfold via their social media shares has got me excited about joining in. I fly out Tuesday to Bozeman, Montana, and then spend Wednesday driving to Jackson on Leg 3 of the journey. The anticipation of finally seeing Yellowstone National Park has me giddy; that is if my driving partner is interested in adding it to the list of attractions we’ll be seeing that day. This trip is a bit like the Dating Game.  I don’t know who’ll I’ll be spending the day with, but I’m hoping its someone one with similar interests.

While there are some uncertainties to the trip by design, one thing I know I don’t have to worry about his the vehicle.  I’m going to love this new Ford Explorer Platinum with its massaging seats, phenomenal sound system, and backup camera. They’re some of the first things I’ll be trying out, but you can bet I’ll be pushing buttons and exploring the rest of it as well. Plus, it’s a beautiful vehicle.

I hope you’ll come along with me on this trip – I’ll be sharing pics and videos as often as I can find a signal, but we’ll be traveling through a remote area where we’re more likely to encounter wildlife than a cell tower. I’ll do my best to keep you with me, and I’ll let you know how my date goes. My husband is hoping I get someone who pushes me to go beyond my comfort zone and get out there and experience it all.

What would you do with a new 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum for the day?
