Get away while you can

Spring is almost here and you’ve totally missed all your chances to get out of the city: ski trips fell through; snow-shoeing plans cancelled for lack of snow; or maybe you find it impossible to get out of bed on the weekend before the sun sets at 4 p.m. We’ve got just the tonic for those hibernation blues: a weekend trip to the country!

We have teamed up with Carpingo to give one lucky reader a Friday-through-Monday car share and a $500 gift certificate* to the Inn at Lake Joseph, a beautiful upstate retreat near Forestburgh, New York. Finally you and your honey can flee the concrete jungle for grass, trees, and a body of water that isn’t the Gowanus Canal.

Carpingo is New York City’s only home-grown hourly car sharing company. Their service is easy – reserve a car online for when and where you need it, and it’ll be there. No lines, no paperwork, no office hours – just unlock and drive. Cars are available by the hour or the day, 24/7. Carpingo will even cover gas and insurance.

We know how it is. Sometimes you bought too many groceries at Trader Joe’s or have to move that kayak that’s been lying in your hallway since May. You just can’t do it without a car. But why bother with the hassle of alternate-side parking and mooching friends who “forget” to offer gas money? Sign up and you’ll not only get access to a car whenever you want, you’ll support a Brooklyn business that partners with great NYC organizations like Rooftop Films, St. Francis College Athletics, and Gotham Girls Roller Derby. With Carpingo, your money stays local even if you’re on the move.

So get out of those pajamas and enter our contest by submitting your email below, and as usual – earn extra entries by following/liking/retweeting and referring friends! It’ll be the perfect way to usher in the warm weather and support a great new business.

*Applicable to room rate only. Gratuity and taxes not included.

    Does anyone ever win these things? I remember there was a contest for a vanmuff bike and one for a trip to Norway or something if you wrote a song about the G train. Did anyone ever win or are these just promotional and email grabs?

    Hi Plaidjack –

    Just wanted to jump in and mention that I was lucky enough to win the VanMoof give-away. It was a total and pleasant surprise (and an awesome bike!).
