26 05 2011

I made it onto a local newspaper called the EMC (Nepean/Barrhaven) and it has just been published this morning! Here is a link to the story:

New video posted on YouTube! Re-introduction and a showcase of my sixth item

25 05 2011

My first video detailing my quest was quite choppy and outdated so I decided to create a new video to re-introduce myself to everyone who don’t know me or have just started following my adventure. The video also outlines the details of my current item, the Beau’s Super VIP brewery tour!

Check it out and make sure to share this by clicking on the Facebook and Twitter icon below! 🙂 Thanks!





Offers are coming in!

24 05 2011

Offers have come in for the VIP Beau’s tour package, and the most recent offer is a 3000$ digital advertising package from Steve at Think Out Loud! in Ottawa. I’m assuming he’s a huge fan of Beau’s Brewery as he Twitted “Will Out bid if have to! I want this tour!” – I love his enthusiasm and the great offer!

If you can’t make an offer, the best way to help me out is to spread the word on Twitter and Facebook about my quest. Even if someone could hook me up with very well connected people that would be awesome! The help is very much appreciated!

If you, or someone you know would like to get in on the bidding action for the Beau’s package, click on the link below to post your offer on my Swapsity.ca portal or contact me directly.

I apologize for the lack of updates recently, the past few days I’ve spent catching up on some house work that I have been putting off for a while. This long weekend was a great opportunity to cross some stuff off of my to-do list.




Preparing my garage to charge a Tesla Roadster

14 05 2011

Can anyone guess what this orange cable is and why it is routed to my garage? Well, since I’m currently renovating the basement in my house; I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to run a 30amp cable to my garage to allow quicker charging of an electric car!

Curious what the difference in charge is? With a standard 3 prong household plug, the Tesla Roadster would take 48 hours to charge – but with this cable installed (and hooked up to the proper breaker) will allow me to charge the supercar in 10 hours from empty to full!

The job isn’t complete yet – but I will post more pictures when it is! 🙂
