I hesitated to blog about our upcoming trip to BlogHer ’09 in Chicago, because when planning a trip with quads in tow, nothing is guaranteed. However, it looks like we will be leaving later this week for a major Quadyssey! Hopefully we can cram 4 pea pod tents into our downtown hotel, and won’t be kicked out due to a noise violation! (But I have hope after seeing how the Goerlich’s and Steece’s managed over the weekend with 8 toddlers in one hotel room!)
This has all come together last minute, because I won a ticket to BlogHer through a Ford giveaway. I’ve never went before, and have no idea what to expect. (Apparently it’s protocol to freak about before going, but I’m resisting.) I’m really looking forward to meeting many of you IRL (in real life) who will be in attendance. Please leave me a comment if you’ll be one of the 1500 bloggers headed to the Windy City – I’d love to arrange a time to meet!
One event that I’ve been asked to be a part of while there, is the Ford Drive and Ride, where I will be touring the plant, testing out vehicles, and participating in a round table to tell Ford what women want in a vehicle.
Here’s some things I look for a vehicle:
- Cargo Space
- Plenty of Cup Holders
- High Safety Ratings
- Accessory Holders
- Easy Access to Passengers
- Overall Value
So here’s your chance to influence the future of transportation. Tell me what you want in a vehicle and I’ll be sure to pass it along in our discussion!
Back to packing for the whole crew!
