Holiday Contest: Tell us your holiday travel horror stories, win a Blackberry Curve with Telenav


Over the river and through the woods indeed — the next few weeks are going to be some the nastiest travel weeks ever. Take snow, sleet, the flu, poor logistics, and a few million roadside assistance calls and you’ve got a nightmare waiting to happen. We want to make your holiday travel a little easier and, thanks to the good people at AT&T and Telenav, we have two Blackerry 8310 with three months Telenav service to give away to two lucky — or actually unlucky — readers.

Telenav is a turn-by-turn voice direction service that will get you from Point A to a nice Turkey Dinner in less time than it takes to type in an address. With Curve, as we all know, is a really nice phone is now my personal favorite. It’s a Win/Win.

Here’s how to enter.

1. Tell us your holiday horror story in BFF. Tell us about the time you spent 15 hours on the tarmac waiting for a 1 hour flight and then the let live gerbils loose on the plane. Tell us about the 2-day road trip you took with your parents to Aunt Myrt’s only to find that Aunt Myrt had moved to Cabo and become Uncle Milt. Tell us your pain. Begin the post with “Holiday Horror:” and then add your little headline.
2. Have your friends, neighbors, and other advanced life forms to vote for and comment on your post. COMMENTS COUNT AS VOTES!
3. Repeat.
4. We will pick the most popular two posts on Monday, December 17th. You will get a Curve and be very happy.

Good luck and happy holiday travels.
