Quantcast

There's always that saying about "time flying" when you have kids, and the same applies to running this website. It was two years ago this month that I first shared our love for the innovative spill-proof travel mugs and bottles produced by Chicago-based CONTIGO, and here we are again. The folks at Contigo can't stop improving, and thus comes the latest additions to their Contigo Kids line - the 14oz AUTOSEAL® Gizmo Sip Water Bottle, and the 10oz AUTOSPOUT® Flip Chill Water Bottle. Each has its own set of benefits, and the technology packed into each bottle is the same great spill-proof action that my wife and enjoy each and every day in our own bottles and mugs. To get summer started off right, the folks at Contigo have provided me with two of each of these new bottles that we're going to give all of you a chance at scoring. Two (2) lucky readers will receive a prize pack that includes one (1) AUTOSEAL Gizmo Sip and one (1) AUTOSPOUT Sip Chill. Let's rock...

Last week, I shared some thoughts on the redesigned Contigo AUTOSEAL West Loop Travel Mugs and how the #1 selling line of spill-proof travel mugs was able to improve upon what I already thought was perfection. Well, the #BestGotBetter, and after deeming the new mugs "Rock Father-Approved," Contigo and I have teamed-up to get one lucky reader hooked-up with a four pack of 16oz mugs (ARV $85!). With Fall pretty much here and the season for Pumpkin Spice upon us, it's a great time to refresh your mug selection with the best of the best!

For over a year, I've been singing the praises of Contigo and their crazy-good line of travel mugs and water bottles. As an on-the-go Dad with two little girls, there's a pretty good chance that we're rockin' some Contigo products whenever we're out and about. I'm a big coffee guy (I tend to mention that), and one of my personal favorites has been the AUTOSEAL West Loop (yes, named after a geographic region of Chicago) Stainless Travel Mug. It's always been the best spill-proof mug out there, but how can you improve on perfection? Well, the best got better, and Contigo just proved that. The secret is in the lid.

Marauders Motor ClubEach summer, Chicago's Marauders Motor Club throws the Barnyard Boogie - "A Motor and Music event to raise money and awareness for the fight against Juvenile Diabetes." It's a day of octane-fueled fun, filled with pre-1975 rides, live rockabilly music, vendors, food, camping, a bonfire, and more. Held in Monee, Illinois (where I spent a large part of my youth), the whole event has been taking place on a property known to many as "The Barnyard Boogie Grounds." To me, it's my Uncle Larry's House, as the Marauders Motor Club is run by my cousin, Loren. For a time in the mid-1990s, he and I spent many nights jamming in that Barn as part of a short-lived band called Epileptic Caesar. Now, our kids dance in front of it during the Barnyard Boogie, though it's been said that this is the last year it will be held at Uncle Larry's place, as it may move for 2014. With Monee over 100 miles from Rock Father HQ, getting there means a road trip, and this year it's been fueled by my friends at Contigo.

WP 20130713 012The Contigo AUTOSPOUT® Sheffield Stainless Steel Water Bottle (pictured left, in-action with baby) is by far, the best water bottle that I have ever owned. Having worked with Contigo as a Blogger Partner over the past few months, I've had a chance to experience many of their water bottles and travel mugs (I have one with me at all times), but the Sheffield is special: it keeps drinks cold for up to 20 hours, which is insane. In fact, during our own travels, the family has been arguing over who gets to use it... then we end up sharing. In the spirit of giving, and the Summer Road Trip, Contigo and The Rock Father are going to hook one lucky reader up with a FOUR-PACK of Sheffield bottles... that way no one in your family will have to be left out (unless, of course, there's more than four of you... in which case, you can buy more here, and use code CONTIGOTRIP to save 20%!).
