While there we had an opportunity to see the 2010 GMC Terrain for ourselves and even go for a test drive. I was completely blown away by some of the new features like the programmable power lift gate, the USB audio connectivity and MP3 playback, XM radio, bluetooth hands-free phone capability and of course the four power outlets for phone chargers, laptops and other can’t-live-without-them portable devices. That’s right, now you can use all your geek goodies while you’re on the road. (and yes, the center armrest is large enough for your laptop!)
In addition to getting to see the Terrain first-hand, and bonding with fellow local bloggers, we received tons of safety information from SafeKids as well. Timely because the Mrs. had been looking for some handy reference materials on car seat safety and guidelines now that the kids are beginning to outgrow their car seats.
Since the meet up was before Christmas, GMC was nice to enough to give us a few goodies to take home from the event including a 116 piece essential first aid kit, a thermos, a fabulously soft blanket (we already had the exact one in green and loved it), 20″ Embark duffel bag, (in hot pink), a Life Gear multipurpose Glow Red stick (it’s a flashlight, flasher and whistle all in one), a 512 MB flash drive and last but certainly not least – a Sony Webbie with a 4 GB memory stick! Talk about a Merry Christmas.
Goodies from GMC
Thanks to GMC, Brickell Motors and SafeKids for inviting me to be a part of their event, acknowledging the importance of social media, blogger outreach and being a part of our community – and thanks for the safety gear, too. It gives me added confidence knowing that when we’re traveling with our children, we’ve got some great gear in case of an emergency. Much appreciated!
