Want a Free 2011 Streets and Trips?

I love this program and have used it for a long time. I was contacted by a public relations firm representing Microsoft to see if I would be willing to give away 5 brand new 2011 Streets and Trips on my blog. They actually sent me 6 copies of the version with GPS Locator, worth $70 each! Of course, I kept one. The GPS Locator enables your laptop to act like a GPS. I have a GPS, so I probably won't use that feature.

What I really like about Streets and Trips is planning an itinerary. You can download lots of Points of Interest (POIs) related to RVing here.

Thank you so much for the suggestions on how to do the contest. This is what I have decided:

There will be 2 contests--

Number 1 - Leave a comment on this blog post that you wish to enter a random drawing. All entries will be put into a hat. Two programs will be given away in the random drawing.

Number 2 - Each of the following 5 pictures were taken in one of the 46 National Parks in the contiguous 48 states. Identify the park (1 point) and the feature shown in the photo (1 point) for a total of 10 points. EMAIL me your answer at dianatolerico at yahoo.com. Three programs will be given away here. In case of a tie, the earliest entry wins. These are all places I visited before I started the blog in 2008.

YOU MAY ENTER BOTH CONTESTS, but can win only once. I can only mail to a US address. The deadline for entering is March 4. Happy Googling!


Number 1



Number 2



Number 3



Number 4



Number 5

  35. Love to hear of your travels and YES YES YES, do enter me in your random drawing and I have know idea of where these pictures were taken since we haven't been to many of the National parks yet, but sure would like to put them on our bucket list so I can't help but watch for the ansewers! I might even try to figure them out with some research!........I should know the information since I am a travel agent, don't you think? Great idea for the contest, really smart thinking! Even if I have to admit my knowledge is nada!

  42. Hi Diana. Great idea. Add me to the entries.

  43. Those are GREAT units! I have the 2008 model with the Pharos transponder.
    It is best when you have a co-pilot or used with a laptop stand.
    The level of detail is unequaled with any windshield unit I have ever seen.
    Pass me over, so that someone without a unit can win...but whoever does is really going to love it!

  51. Love your blog, I'm it for the randon drawing.
    I saw you last year at the Arizona Marketplace you blew by me so fast by the time I figured out who it was, you 100ft past me, you are a hiker!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hmmm .. I don't think Streets is Mac friendly so I won't enter ... I am however anxious to see the answers to the NP questions, I have inklings but can't say I have been to any of those spots ... except maybe the petroglyph. Good way to do a give away.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've been enjoying your blog for several years now, but this is my first time post. I especially like the pictures that you take and the useful information that you provide. Now that I'm retired, I hoping to visit some of the fun places that you write about. Please add my name to the hat for the drawing.
