Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
I've seen some pretty interesting marketing recently but this one takes the cake. The "I'm Going Places" sweepstakes at http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=6257425 has a really kewl grand prize... "10 hours of private jet travel for you and up to 6 guests on a Citation V Ultra provided by the Marquis Jet Card program, with fleet by NetJets. Chauffeured transportation to the jet will be provided."
WOW!!! How far is it to Hawaii from San Francisco? I know you can't do round trip to Hawaii from Dallas in 10 hours. See the official rules at https://microsoft.eprize.net/msofficeliveimgoingplaces/index.tbapp?page=rules. There are some mighty nice prizes to win. I wish I was eligible.
SFO to HI is 2,393 statute miles.
The Citation V Ultra range with seven passengers is 1,372 statute miles. Slightly more if you kick off people so you can fill the tanks.
You would be swimming with the fishes. The ones with big mouths and many sharp teeth.
Hold out for a G-V or a Challenger.
LOL. That's what I figured. Ok, off to Steamboat Springs it is... :)
