The adverts are from the 70s and 80s, but what if you wanted to form a crew of Bounty hunters? If you’re expecting to get advice from the careers advice centre, you’ll be extremely disappointed; if you’re expecting to get advice from Retrohen, you’ll be glad you asked…
Step 1: Round-up a group of friends – convince them to ditch their daily routine and instead go an island adventure. Having trouble getting them to buy into your adventurous idea? Take on the persona of a politician: smile, speak with authority and boldness whilst making promises of a stress-free lifestyle, beach parties every evening, and a fruitful treasure hunt on arrival. You’ll no doubt
cheat win them over.
Step 2: Locate an uninhabited island. Get familiar with the globe sitting on the living room table and dust off the atlas on the bookshelf. Bear in mind that google won’t be available on the adventure so you might as well start training yourself to do without modern day technology – old school journey planning starts here!
Step 3: Get a boat. This should not be too problematic: there are loads of speedboats around the country gathering dust. You’ll be thanking Jim Bowen and the Bullseye quiz show for their helping hand.
Step 4: Stock-up. You’re going to need some foodstuff to keep you all going during the journey. Stock-up wisely without stockpiling – any extra on-board stock could cause your boat to sink like a brick – your adventure will end with the sea rescue team fighting through a clutter of floating food to save your lives!
Step 5: This is where the dream starts to materialise: you all arrive on the uninhabited island. There’s no time to rest as this is where the search for paradise really begins. Be prepared to hunt high and low for hidden treasure. There won’t be any soap and hot water to help clear dirt wedged under your fingernails after digging for treasure, so put your teeth to good use and spit with caution!
Step 6: You’ve found treasure: bowlfuls of Bounty chocolate bars! You can all take a breather and tuck into the taste of paradise. Life has changed – you all are not just people going through the treadmill of life, you can call yourselves Bounty Hunters. Paradise found.
