I don't post much in response to contests, but this one caught my attention, and at the last minute, too.
Blogher is running a contest for tickets to Blogher and I'd like to go to Chicago as much as I'd like to go somewhere, nearly anywhere I haven't been yet. Plus, as I get more serious about my writing, I'd certainly love to go to Blogher to meet other writers whose work I have read.
After looking at all the specs, I'd have to choose the Ford Flex, because as much as I'd love to be driving a hybrid these days, a vacation with my family requires a bit more space. Typically we use a third row seat to split the boys up when we are on long trips. It keeps the peace. We also have a dog who is so much a part of the family that we take him on vacation unless we are flying.
I once drove a Ford Explorer. It lasted for 10 years, and I loved it. It did not have much in the way of gadgets, nor does the car I currently drive, so when I looked at the list of available technology on the Flex, I was impressed. I particularly like the idea of a built-in refrigeration compartment, that would save us the room a cooler would take up.
So, send me to Blogher, I'm sure there's plenty for my husband and kids to do in Chicago, and we need an excuse for a road trip!
