The concept of the Overnight Protocol started when I was having a chat with another travel fanatic and a former officemate of mine. We were talking about immediate travel invitations and how to increase the chance of saying yes to that kind of invitation. The topic evolved to unplanned super
pasikat sa boss overtime sessions at the office or just a simple hey-friends-let’s-spend-the-night-at-tagaytay-now-na invitation.
My officemate concluded that to increase the chance of saying yes to immediate overnight invitation is to always bring the essentials, underwear and a toothbrush.
Underwear for the simple change of the currently used one.
Toothbrush is for brushing the teeth. Toothpaste can be acquired through the use of charms from your friends or their stock at home.
Since my body has a different set of characteristics I concluded to always bring an extra shirt, underwear and my pogi pack.
Extra shirt – I have an active sweat glands that’s why after a long days work I would have a need to change my shirt.
Underwear – same reason as above.
Pogi Pack – best explained on my post here.
The Overnight Protocol does not only end with your basic needs for a quick overnight getaway. It also takes into account the social needs of others. If you’re living with other people in your house you would not want to make them worried that something happened to you. Let them know of your plan of staying somewhere else for the night.
