Here’s your chance! Backpacker is in search of Brand Ambassadors to represent our expanding Get Out More mobile Tours. In addition to the 14th annual Get Out More Tour that will be on the road from March through September 2014, Backpacker will be launching a Get Out More Women's Tour that will be on the road from April through August 2014, and a Get Out More Winter Tour that will be on the road from October 2014 through February 2015. If you’re selected you will travel across the United States representing Backpacker and the Get Out More partner brands as Tour Hosts at 50 – 65 retail events and at a handful of cool outdoor festivals. We’ll provide the Tour vehicle, pay for the gas, cover your campsite/lodging expenses and even give you a paycheck. Sound like your dream job? That’s because it is your dream job!
