Roadtrip

The Dads are definitely getting back into the swing of things, finally able to get together to talk about the latest and greatest things happening to us and our families. Obviously, our opinions and advice fly like t-balls in the Spring but you have to listen to the Cast of Dads podcast #41Summer is Almost Upon Us” for all of our sagely advice. I just got back from a road trip down to LA (which I will write a bit more about the actual transportation later) where the highlight was not only visiting Disneyland, but also getting to visit the set of Wizards of Waverly Place (my youngest daughter was literally floating on air after meeting Selena Gomez – see picture below). Anyway, be sure to listen to the podcast for all of the details, especially how Sony and Ford are getting 4/5ths of the Cast of Dads together in NYC & Boston for an exciting road trip.

Also, we haven’t forgotten about the launch of our first ever Cast of Dads giveaway, sponsored by Intel. Be sure to listen to this and upcoming podcasts to learn how you could win a Dell Inspiron Duo! We are still trying to work out the details.

This is an on-going series about the 2010 Ford Flex. Ford has graciously loaned me a Flex for two weeks in order for me to fully experience not only the car, but also the technology, specifically Microsoft Sync. I have now been driving the Flex for about 3-4 days and am really starting to fall in love. For some background information, this is the first “car review” that I have done. I won’t be reporting on that much of the car itself but more around the brains within it. I thought that before I spend time specifically on the Ford Sync, I would mention some of the other “techy” features that power the Ford Flex and then devote some other article(s) to the Sync.
