And the winner of Gadling’s Perfect Road Trip Contest IS….

Scott F, with the perfect road trip through the American Northwest. After a tumultous week of voting where we first thought that Jon would win with his journey though the Florida Keys and then Patrick surged forth with his tech savvy trip through the American Southwest, Scott finally pulled through to claim the victory and win his perfect trip.

Our lucky winner will receive free flights, accomodation and expenses during his journey through the northwest, starting in Portland, driving through the Cascade Mountains and up into the high desert of Oregon.

Don’t think that you’ve heard the last of the Perfect Road Trip contest though. In addition to Scott’s dispatches from the road, we’re also sending a Gadling blogger on the same itinerary to document the journey, capture the landscape and report from the pavement on your best-voted candidate. So stick around and find out why the American Northwest is Perfect Road Trip, why the Cadillac SRX is the perfect vehicle for the job and most of all, for you next chance to win something fabulous at your favorite blog,
