Posted on July 18th, 2010 in Contest,Massachusetts by luke

We recently ran a contest for a free night at the red jacket beach resort in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

The winner was decided by your votes, and you overwhelmingly selected Aly and Joel from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Congratulations Aly and Joel!

We can’t thank Red Jacket Beach Resort enough for being nice enough to give some of our followers this gift!


Who will win the free night stay?

Posted on July 14th, 2010 in Contest,Massachusetts,vote by alex and luke

A few weeks ago we announced a contest here on, which gave you the opportunity to win a free night stay at the Red Jacket Beach Resort in beautiful Cape Cod.  We had the pleasure of staying at The Red Jacket a few months back, and are very excited to share this experience with a lucky follower!

The following three entries will now compete for your votes to see who is awarded the big prize.  Consider all three, and then cast your vote!


Contestant #1 Stevie:

“Hey Alex and Luke. It’s Stevie from queens NY. I’m the unluckiest guy that you will ever meet. I had a ‘disturbed’ person stab me in the chest when I graduated college, all due to the fact he was schizophrenic or on drugs. I can seriously go on forever. I have never had a spring break because I’ve always had to come home to work to help pay my family’s bills ever since my father got laid off and had a triple bypass surgery. I don’t want or am looking any kind of sympathy. You guys are living my dream and I commend you on it. I just never had a chance to travel anywhere and haven’t relaxed in months (alot to due with the economy and my job status). don’t cry me a river.. lol. I’ll pull through, but I can’t think of 1 thing better than to get away…. just for an evening, if at all… just to rejuvenate myself and to try and convince myself that things CAN get better and good things happen to good people. Anyway, I’m sure whoever you choose will be thankful and appreciative of your generous offer and I thank you for involving us, your followers, who have tried to taste a bit of the unexpectedness and freedom we all long for. God bless. And thank you for your time.”


Contestant #2 Rozica:

“I wish to win this for my lovely daughter Julie’s 21st birthday. All I wish for in the world is to share this with her because she is my angel and means the world to me. As a single parent, I have not been able to do much or go to many places and this is a DREAM come true. Thank you. “


Contestant #3 Aly & Joel:

A New Follower Suggests the Newport Cliff Walk

Posted on May 6th, 2010 in favourites,Massachusetts,Rhode Island,Suggestions,Twitter,YouTube by alex and luke

Our headlight burnt out somewhere between Newfoundland and Boston. We found a VW dealership just north of Salem to get it fixed. While we were waiting, we chatted with a young guy who was waiting for an oil change. We told him about our project. He then started following us on Twitter. Within a day he had given us a suggestion… The Cliff Walk in Newport. So we did it, and it was a highlight of our Rhode Island visit. Check out the video to see more!
