It was just another sunny day as I scanned one of hundreds of spam email messages I receive weekly. As I reached for the “d” key (I’m still retro in shell-based pine mailer) I had second thoughts. Could it be? I mean, in my 7 years as a carseat technician I had never actually been given anything more than a t-shirt…and yet suddenly I had won the carseat geek lottery? Naturally, I was skeptical of Evenflo seemingly offering me a free seat just for completing my mandatory CEU units on their website, but I forwarded along my name, address, and phone number to the friendly lady on the other end of the email address–which didn’t end in .ng (Nigeria), I might add.
The very next day, I received confirmation from Evenflo that my brand new Momentum 65 DLX would soon be en route to my Washington State address. Now as many of you know, I’m a fickle sort of carseat technician…flirting with British Columbia one day, and Washington the next. The Momentum 65, at the time not available in Canada, was the cherry on top for this Momentum-virgin Canuck. Having played with the Momentum’s cousins, the Symphony and the Triumph series, I waited in anticipation for my Momentum. So what do I think of my prize?
