Random Tweet + Tesla Roadster = New Connections

It started with a random tweet. It ended with a ride around Winnipeg in a Tesla Roadster and a new friendship. I saw @KeithBilous tweet about how much he loved giving people rides in his recent "birthday gift to himself": A new Tesla Roadster. I responded and said I wanted a ride, too. :) Seeing that my Twitter profile says I'm in Phoenix, he joked that if I were in Winnipeg, he'd swing by and pick me up. (Little did he know... that's the tweet that got him in trouble) I'm originally from Winnipeg and was back in town visiting family & friends, so I responded with my current whereabouts to see if he was really serious. He was. 15 minutes later, I was making a new friend from the passenger side of an electric sports car. #FunTimes Here's a video clip of us getting lost in Winnipeg: (Yeah, sorry about the sideways angle. I'm still learning how to manage my iPhone.) [caption ...

Where is my Tuxedo?? (Another Reason I’m #LovinLogistics)

When I started the Social Media Adventure way back in the early days, I threw a few shirts & shorts into the trunk of my car and hit the highway to meet my online friends in person.  I wanted to put a practical application to the notion that the web is connecting us and bringing us together. Some things have changed since I originally departed, but the wardrobe ...

Trip to South Lake Tahoe for Pizza & Prosperity!

I love Lake Tahoe! Well, that is, except for the cold. :) This was my first time in South Lake Tahoe, NV and I wasn't sure what to expect. After leaving Canada a few years ago I don't tolerate the cold much. Even in Phoenix I get a bit chilly when it drops below 70 degrees... Anyway, back to the story. I ...

Social Media Adventure sings Kelly Clarkson: My Life Would Suck Without You

This post has been a long time coming. After many requests I am finally giving in... You see, anyone who knows me well knows that I am shameless. I don't really ever get embarrassed and don't mind looking silly. I sing out loud in my car, i wave at strangers, i do handstands in public. That's how I roll. For some reason, though, I was a bit reluctant to share this ...

Memorial Day Weekend in Phoenix – Social Media BBQ

There are few things better than a barbecue with good friends, but this one was over-the-top amazing. In my previous post I described how the Social Media Adventure is about combining my love for travel, people and social media into one exciting adventure, and about how my friend Stephanie Quilao (aka @SkinnyJeans) uses her site www.Noshtopia.com to combine her love for social media with food for the greatest ...

Phoenix, Arixona – Whole Foods, Whole Friends, Whole Lotta Fun!

When I started the Social Media Adventure, it was driven by love. (Insert a big Awwwwww, isn't that sweet? here.) More specifically, it was driven by a love for 2 things in particular: My love for people (and making new friends) A love for social media To be honest, what could be more fun than combining those things? I didn't think it was possible... But ...

Foursquare Saves The Day… Almost. (The Phoenix Food Caper)

In case you hadn't noticed by now, I love Foursquare. If you're not familiar with Foursquare, it's a geo-location app integrated with social media interactivity. In non-geek speak, it means that you can scout around the city doing fun things and let your friends know what you're up to.  It's also a fun treasure hunt, where you can earn badges just like back in boy scouts. Yay! [caption id="attachment_316" ...

The #1 Reason why Colorado is better than Utah

Moab is hot. No, not just hot... it's like a freakin' furnace! Yeah, and I live in Phoenix. Moab was WAY hotter than Phoenix for some strange reason.  Okay, maybe it wasn't so strange... it might have been the fact that we were out hiking on the red rocks of Arches National Park at high-noon, without water, and I had my shirt off. Either way, it was still hot... ...
