Our contest starts live right now and we’ll accept entries until Midnight EST on May 11.  We will announce the winner on May 12 to keep the 31 days of giveaways alive and kicking.  Here’s all you have to do to be entered for this awesome prize bundle:

Running a blog for such a long time means that Kevin and I reveal a lot about ourselves over the course of time.  We like to share with our faithful readers and we felt that with such a great prize on the line those of you who want to enter the contest should prove how well you’ve been paying attention.  To enter the contest email the answers to the following questions to [email protected].  Be sure and include in your entry your real name and email address so we can contact you if you are the winner.  Do NOT include any other information like your address as we will get that from the winner after the contest.  To insure that no one inadvertently posts the answers here we have disabled comments on this post so if you want to enter you MUST email to the above email address.  It is the only email address we will consider for the contest.  When the contest entry period ends Kevin and I will randomly select a winner from a pool of those with the most correct answers to these questions:

  1. What are James’ and Kevin’s ages as of today?
  2. How many times has James been to Paris?
  3. What is the name of the young lady besides Barbara who lives in Kevin’s house?
  4. What is special about Kevin’s SUV?
  5. Kevin and James both use the same camera for video reviews.  Name it.
  6. What sports car does Kevin drive and what year model is it?
  7. What is James’ current ride and what year model is it?
  8. What famous music star did James open for in a concert years ago?
  9. How many comments have been left on jkOnTheRun as of right now? (closest one is correct)
  10. How many posts have been published on jkOnTheRun as of right now? (closest one)
  11. The producer/ director of what famous movie once left a comment on jkOTR?

That’s it, these are all the questions you need to answer.  Hey, you didn’t expect us to just give the Dragon away for doing nothing, right?

Remember, only entries emailed to [email protected] will qualify for the drawing.  Entries shut down at Midnight EST on May 11 and the winner will be announced sometime during the day of May 12.  Our decision will be final and entries are open to anyone anywhere so get them in.  Only one entry per person will be accepted.  Good luck!
