Enter Gadling’s “Perfect Road Trip” Contest!

Yesterday, we announced Gadling’s “Perfect Road Trip” contest, a fantabulous contest in which Gadling is partnering with Cadillac to send one lucky winner (and a friend!) on his or her perfect road trip, all expenses paid. All you have to do is describe your favorite road trip, and if you’re selected as the winner, Cadillac will provide —

  • airfare for you and a friend from your home(s) to the start of your road trip destination;
  • a new Cadillac SRX to drive for the duration of a the road trip (sorry, you have to give it back at the end of the trip);
  • money for fuel and expenses along the way (think: hotel and meals);
  • airfare from the road trip’s end point back to your home.

Here’s how the contest works —

  1. In the comments below, leave a comment telling us about your favorite road trip. (Please: no months-long trips here; the road trip may only be two days long, but that’s PLENTY of time to, say, cruise the Florida Keys.)
  2. You don’t have to have been on the road trip before — it can be one you’re dreaming about — but try to be specific. Make us drool over your imagined itinerary. (Hint: the prize will be available in September, so try to think of a relevant destination — and that destination must be in the Continental US.)
  3. You can only leave one road trip suggestion, so choose wisely. Successive road trip ideas will remain visible on the site, however, for other people to dream about.
  4. All submissions must be left by July 22, 2009, at 5pm EST, in order to be considered.
  5. Gadling’s road trip gurus will choose the 5 best road trip ideas from those left in the comments.
  6. We’ll present Gadling’s readers with the list early next week, and they’ll vote on which is the best road trip — and therefore, who should be the winner of the contest.
  7. Leaving a comment below constitutes having read, understood, and agreed to the complete rules (link is a PDF).

Good luck.
