Test Driving the 2014 Ford F-150 While Helping Habitat for Humanity – Not a Bad Way to Spend the Day


Habitat for Humanity‘s vision is “a world where everyone has a decent place to live”, and in one Detroit neighborhood, they have really made a difference. Jeffrey Powers of Geekazine and I recently test drove a 2014 Ford F-150 while delivering wood to be used on the 100th Habitat home being built in one Detroit neighborhood. That’s community in action!


Granted, we didn’t get our hands too dirty (I was wearing gloves – ha!), and the main focus of our day was to actually test drive the truck, but we did drop off supplies, and we did get to spend a bit of time talking to the volunteers on site — many of whom were Ford employees.


I think it would have been fun to stay and help Habitat put that 100th house together, but alas …


And our test drive? Jeffrey caught most of it on video. Enjoy! =)

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
