Fitcation is Taking Applications–Twitter Party July

Fitcation, a healthy blogger retreat organized by the Mamavation campaign, has just opened up applications. This year our excursion is to Paso Robles, California in October. It’s just in between Santa Barbara and San Francisco and is beautiful wine country. During this weekend bloggers will be doing several activities such as hiking, touring vineyards and farms, wine tasting, kayaking, shopping, doing Crosfit, yoga, and plenty of sight seeing at Hearst Castle and other places. And finally, some amazing swag bags are being assembled with natural food, fitness and parenting products. It’s going to be an amazing journey and only available to bloggers. Half the tickets have already gone to Mamavation members, but the other half will be open to applications. Tickets will be $200 and they include all activities and most meals. You will still need to get yourself to the location and get a hotel room. Each blogger participant is asked to sign a contract promising to post within two weeks and live tweet the event using specified hashtags. You don’t have to be a mom, but you do have to be female and an active blogger. Announcements of who will be cleared to purchase tickets will be after July 15th.

Here is a video from our sponsor with one destination we will be visiting. Halter Ranch is a sustainable vineyard that sources to over 100 different wineries.

And after seeing those sights, I’m sure you are interested in more details about the event:
