Chevrolet Drive Green Challenge: Week in a Tahoe Hybrid to Quench My Thirst for Florida Knowledge

A Week in a Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Would Quench My Thirst for More Florida Knowledge

A Week in a Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Would Quench My Thirst for More Florida Knowledge

What if someone gave you a groovy hybrid vehicle for your personal use for a week, where would you go? What would you do? Over the weekend at SheCon, I met up with members of the DrivingtheSoutheast.com team and took a look at the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid.

Suh-weet! Looks like a comfortable ride with loads of space and great fuel efficiency, a road tripper’s best friend! Seeing it in person got me thinking, where would I want it to take me? Well, Chevrolet is running a contest for bloggers who attended SheCon and asked, “What would you do if you had a Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid for a week?” The winner will have the opportunity to drive the vehicle for a week.

Hmm. I wasn’t sure if this was a trick question. Are they asking if I would do 50 cartwheels down the beach if I’m selected or are they asking what would I actually do if I won the week?

For a few years I’ve kicked around the idea of attending a different Florida festival each weekend and running a blog. Since I need a job to support my travel habit and knowing I have to work some weekends, something like this isn’t feasible right now.

Instead, if I had access to a Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid for a week I’d quench my thirst for Florida knowledge by learning something new each day. This could be learning how to be a mermaid in Weeki Wachee, or maybe learning what it takes at the Astronaut Training Experience at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, or swing from a trapeze in Venice, or learn how to properly toss mullet during a mullet festival, or, well… the or’s could continue but you’ll have to use your imagination.

I love learning about new things and how things work. Having access to a Tahoe Hybrid for a week would allow me to carry as much as I need (maybe sleep in it), be efficient on fuel (and budget) and give my road tripping car (also a hybrid) a rest. And what about Chevrolet? Oh, they’d be mentioned on a daily basis and included in Tweets, Facebook posts, YouTube videos, Flickr images and blog posts. C’mon Chevrolet, we could have a good thing going. 🙂

While I was down in Everglades National Park today, I shot this video with what I would do with a Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid for a week. Wish me luck!

  1. Congrats on winning the Drive Green Challenge! I heart the Everglades.

  2. Thanks, Holly! Everglades are special to me 🙂

  3. The new upcoming 2012 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid is absolutely one of the latest sensations in the present market. With its powerful, 6.0-liter V-8 engine, spacious and comfortable interior cabin, it is expected to become a big hit for Chevy motors in the next year.
