Don't Get Lost Again

When my good friend, Kelli told me about this contest, I HAD to pass the details on to you guys! The grand prize is a Garmin GPS! All you have to do for a chance to win, is tell a story about a time you got lost. Those of you who have read my blog for more than a couple months, have undoubtedly read my stories about getting lost. I'm totally directionally impaired. I got lost walking to the train station in Chicago. I got lost driving in Chicago. I got lost on my way to NIU to visit a friend. I hit Lake Michigan on my way there. Those of you from Chicagoland know you can't start on the north side of the city and get to Dekalb via Lake Michigan. Don't ask. One time, I got lost 3 blocks from my house! (Yeah, maybe I shouldn't tell people about that one...)

Anyway, here are the contest details. Check it out and good luck!!! :)

In Deliver Us From Evil, the new suspense novel from author Robin Caroll, Roark and Brannon face chilling odds: they’re trapped in a blizzard with a killer (or killers?) hunting them down! Being lost could be the least of their problems.

To celebrate the launch of Deliver Us From Evil, we’re offering one (1) Grand Prize winner the chance to never be lost again!

Our contest prize is a brand new Garmin nĂ¼vi GPS. This popular model has a 4.3-inch widescreen, is Bluetooth enabled, and includes a helpful traffic feature.

To enter, simply tell us about a time when you got lost! Your story can be about a hiking trip gone awry, a wrong turn down a dark road, a missed connection in a foreign country, even a can’t-find-my-car-in-the-mall-parking-lot adventure:)

Our judges will select their top five (5) favorite stories as finalists, and then we’ll open the polls for voting. The finalist story that receives the most votes wins!

This contest is open to people at least 18 years old that reside in the United States and Canada. Contest started February 01, 2010 and ends February 17, 2010 @ 11:59 pm (PST)

Not a US resident but I'll tell my tale anyways.

Heading to my Sister In Law's wedding reception, my hubby thought he saw his Aunts car, and decided to follow it rahter than getting the map out and finding his own way.
Now my husband had a rather loud sound system in the car, so we were thumping along after his Aunt.
I laughingly mentioned how funny it would be if it wasn't his Aunt at all in the car we were following.
Next thing we know the car turns into a random driveway. (nowhere near the reception hall)
It wasn't his Aunt and the look of total mortification that went across hubbys face was priceless.

I still have a giggle about it any time I leave him to navigate withut a map.
