Let’s cut to the chase – paying for gas sucks. And, it’s unavoidable. And, chances are you have to do it WAY too often, because driving to work, school, playing chauffeur, shopping, bar hopping, Driving Miss Daisy, etc takes up a lot of fuel.
(Of course, this would be a great time to suggest alternative methods of transportation, but I’ll just come out and say it: I’d rather help the environment by recycling, composting and foregoing aerosol hair spray than get on a bus. Sorry, just not my cup of tea.)
Regardless of how you spend your time taxiing, Shell is offering a sweet little contest to help make your next road trip a little more affordable. On Facebook? Would love to win some gas money? You’re in luck.
With Shell’s ” Favourite Road Trip” contest, simply share your favourite road trip memory in 250 words or less, and you’ll have a chance to win 1 of 3 prizes of $1000 worth of NEW Shell Nitrogen Enriched gasolines.
(Good to know: The gasoline is pumped full of 20% more cleaning agents than before, making it one of the best fuels to protect your engine.)
Some of my favourite vacations involve road trips. Who doesn’t love packing a map, snacks and a carefree attitude? (Unless you have children under the age of 12. Then, road trips are less desirable, truth.) I have fond memories of creating “Road Trip” mix tapes and CDs especially for the occasion, and mapping out my very own EDR’s (Emergency Detour Routes). #geek
In fact, this is the perfect time to share with you memories of road trips with girlfriends to Wasaga Beach, back in our late teens and early 20’s. It went something like this:
1. Pack beer and bathing suit. (Not necessarily in that order.)
Whoa! Was it ever THAT easy to walk out the door? Today I need about 67 items just to go to the grocery store. And sadly, those have been my more popular road trips of late :(
Anyhoo, make my day and enter for your chance to win $1000 worth of NEW Shell Nitrogen Enriched gasolines. Simply pop on over to Shell’s fan page on Facebook, tell your best tale, and cross your fingers! Contest ends September 16th. Good luck!
