[twitter]They say summer is road trip season. The time when we’re on the road for long vacations and drives around the continent.

Frankly, winter is road trip season too. With the holidays, shopping, and escapes to the mountains for skiing, snowshoeing, and more, is there ever a time we’re not on the roads seeking fun and excitement?

So far this year we’ve taken a day trip to the foothills to have lightsaber battles on Hoth, and have made dozens of trips to the mall picking up supplies for feasting and gifting.

There’s also a chance that, with airfares hovering near $3000 for our family of 4 to get to Vancouver for Christmas, I may make the 12 hour drive in the snow and see my grandfather, parents, sister, brother, and extended family.

For all of these, I need gas money, and safety supplies. I’ve partnered again with Shell to give away all this for you as you gear up for your winter road trip.

Where are you headed this winter?

    I’m hoping to take the family to Banff for a few days, and that is about the extent of our holiday travel this year – but I’d most likely use the gas card to fund all of the driving I do delivering food hamper, meals and baby essentials to moms in crisis around the city. I usually put on about 700kms a week volunteering!
