Missing Socks No More

Did you ever have a “missing sock” problem?

Finding a pair of matching socks can be a common frustration. I don’t know if socks get separated in the laundry or what happens to them, but most people I know have had some “missing sock” experiences.

Well, if you shop for socks on DealDash.com, you might never have to look for a matching sock again – not if you win 96 pair of socks in one auction. No joke!

No wardrobe is complete without a pair of socks for any occasion, and in every color!

As of this writing, DealDash has one active auction in which the winner will actually receive a whopping 96 pair of men’s basketball socks. Now what could we do with that many pair of socks? We could give them to an entire basketball team, or donate them to homeless people to help keep their feet warm this winter, or we could keep them ourselves and never run out of socks again. This package of 96 pair of socks BIN for $624.00.

Upcoming sock auctions

If we do not want to shop for men’s socks DealDash has many more sock auctions coming up for women and children, too. Upcoming sock auctions will include:

  • 60 pair of black, gray and pink double-layer cozy crew socks for women with a BIN of  $360.00
  • 120 pair of cushioned crew socks for women with a BIN of $899.00
  • 72 pair of red, green and blue ankle socks for boys with a BIN of $240.00
  • 180 pair of crew socks in various designs and colors for youth (boys or girls) with a BIN of $539.00
  • 120 pair of memory foam liner socks in size S/M with a BIN of $240.00
  • 48 pair of knee socks for women with a BIN of $311.00

Just think how many Christmas gifts we could take care of if we win just one of these sock auctions.

Honestly, I learned the hard way that new socks might be one of the last things some children want to see under their Christmas tree. When my sons were young they entered a Santa letter-writing contest. They were to write a “thank you” letter to Santa for what they received the previous Christmas. The prize was a free season pass to a local water park. My son Ryan wrote, “Dear Santa, Thank you for the stupid socks you gave me last year. Please do not make the same mistake again this year.” To our surprise, he won!

As adults, however, I think we can truly appreciate some nice warm socks. In fact, the more socks I get the better and merrier I’ll be.

The bottom line

If all of these sock auctions on DealDash do not put shoppers in sock heaven, nothing will!  Happy shopping and I will see you in the sock auctions!

Be a Race Car Driver

How would you like to have the experience of being a race car driver? Well, guess what? Now you might have the perfect opportunity to do just that and you have come to the right place to read all about it.

DealDash.com has a brand new auction for shoppers to experience being behind the wheel of a super race car on a track in Thornburg, Virginia. If you do not win this auction, you could BIN (Buy-It-Now) for $507.00.

Unfortunately, the first auction for this rare opportunity to “put the pedal to the metal” behind the wheel of a supercar and take three laps around a special race track is already up for auction and all new bidders have already been blocked. However, DealDash might hold more auctions like this one, so if you missed it keep your eyes open for another one.

The winner of this auction will start with a 20 to 30 minute classroom session. According to the DealDash description, the professional instructor will “go over racing tips, proper driving position, steering techniques, braking and acceleration with powerful vehicles.” Following the classroom session, you will “be sent down to the pit to be fitted for your helmet and to prepare yourself for the thrill of a lifetime!”

If you feel the need for speed this will be the opportunity for you to feed your craving. The car you will be driving can hit 60 MPH in just three seconds and reach top speeds of 200-plus MPH.

You will take the driver’s seat but your instructor will be in the passenger seat the entire time to “give you real-time feedback and pointers on how to get the most out of both the course and your supercar!”

Once in awhile you want to push the pedal to the metal!

Drivers must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license. It’s not recommended for participants who are more than 6 feet, 3 inches tall or anyone who exceeds 350 pounds. Helmets will be provided. Also included in the cost is the minimum track insurance policy, but participants could upgrade the insurance for an additional fee at the time of booking. “Photos and video of your experience will be available for purchase at the track on the day of your experience.” The winning driver will be able to share this experience with family and friends who could see the action close up, but the maximum “ride along” participants is three persons. Pit passes are available on the day of the event for an additional $10 per person but anyone under age 12 is free.

According to the DealDash description all of the supercars are equipped with a semi-automatic transmission and drive just like your automatic car. However, if you know how to shift and have track experience and want to use the paddle shifters, let your instructor know and he or she will be happy to help you shift.

This auction does not include accommodations and other expenses such as flights to and from the location of the track, but the winner will receive a digital voucher for the experience itself.

For more information about possible changes or delays due to inclement weather, unexpected mechanical issues, COVID-19 safety rules in place or other details, see the complete DealDash description.

Brief History of Auto Racing

Frank Duryea won the first motor-car race held in the United States on Thanksgiving Day in 1895. This mechanic and inventor, along with his brother, designed their own “horseless carriage” for the race.

Enzo Ferrari, a young Italian car mechanic and engineer, is listed as the first race car driver in history. Ferrari’s first car race took place on Oct. 5, 1919, on a hill climb in Parma, Italy.

In the early 20th century, rich petrol heads would race their cars on Ormond Beach in Florida. The first car to break 100 mph in 1905 was a 90hp Napier owned by S.E. Edge. It was driven by Arthur MacDonald, a British man who took it to 104.65 mph over the measured mile.

The world’s fastest cars in the 1970s were:

  • 7 1970 Ferrari 365 GT (2+2): 156 mph…
  • 6 1971 De Tomaso Mangusta: 155 mph…
  • 5 1970 Chrysler Hemi: 155 mph …
  • 4 1971 Chevrolet Corvette ZR2: 152 mph …
  • 3 1970 Dodge Challenger: 146 mph …
  • 2 1971 Plymouth GTX 440: 145 mph …
  • 1 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6: 142 mph

In 1999 the world’s fastest car was the Lamborghini Diablo GT that reached 215 mph. 

According to my search, the new $1.9 million SSC Tuatara hyper car legitimately claimed the title as the fastest car in the world in early 2021 with a verified two-way average speed of 282.9 mph in Florida

If you have a need for speed, keep your eye open for another “ride of a lifetime” auction on DealDash.com.

Take a Helicopter Tour

DealDash.com is coming up with some new and truly unique auctions.

One of the new auctions is a helicopter ride. Have you ever wanted to take a ride on a helicopter? Well, now you could have your first opportunity to do just that.

This auction offers the winner a 25-minute scenic helicopter tour for two to enjoy breathtaking views of key sights while flying above Los Angeles, California.

According to DealDash’s description of this amazing experience, the winner of this auction can take one other person on this helicopter tour with them but other spectators are welcome to come to the airport and take photos from the ground. 

What an amazing way to see the city!

A certified helicopter pilot will point out several landmarks on this customized tour. Some sights you can expect to see (but are subject to change) include:

  • Los Angeles Basin
  • Downtown L.A.
  • Hollywood Hills
  • Hollywood sign
  • Downtown Hollywood
  • Grauman’s Chinese Theater
  • Dolby Theater
  • Hollywood Forever Cemetery
  • Paramount Studios
  • University of Southern California campus

All passengers must have a valid form of identification. Weight restrictions apply. The maximum weight allowed per person is 300 pounds or a total combined weight of 600 pounds for the winner and one guest. Your pilot will provide protective headsets for each passenger. Comfortable clothing and rubber-soled shoes are recommended.

Gratuity for the pilot is not included and the winner of this auction must provide their own transportation to and from the location of the airport where the helicopter rides are to take place. In case of inclement weather, you will reschedule directly with the pilot.

For more detailed information, check the description of this auction on DealDash.

Brief History of Helicopters

According to my research, many inventors and engineers from all over the world built prototypes of helicopters after 1912, many of which were used in the first two world wars.

The first helicopter to attain production status was the Focke-Achgelis Fa 223 Drache (English for Dragon). This helicopter was developed by Germany during World War II. However, production was hampered by the Allied bombing of the factory, so only 20 were built.

Igor Sikorsky is credited with creating the first mass-produced helicopter in the United States.

The VS-300, designed by Igor Sikorsky, first took flight on Sept. 14, 1939 at Stratford, Connecticut. It was built by the Vought-Sikorsky Aircraft Division of the United Aircraft Corporation. This was the world’s first practical helicopter and was the first to incorporate a single main rotor and tail rotor design.

Turbine-engined helicopters can reach around 25,000 feet. But the maximum height at which a helicopter can hover is much lower because of the thin air at greater heights. A high performance helicopter like the Agusta A109E can hover at 10,400 feet.

The first transatlantic helicopter flight took place in 1952, but the first non-stop transatlantic helicopter flight did not take place until 1967.

The Sikorsky X2 now holds the record for the fastest helicopter in the world. The helicopter first set the unofficial record in 2010 when a demonstrator model reached 287 mph but since production has achieved faster speeds

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift for someone special in your life, this might be an auction you might want to win – especially if you are already living in or near the Los Angeles area where the helicopter airport is located.

The best part is even if you are not able to win this auction you can still BIN it for only $260.00.

Where else can we get such high-end, products at bargain prices?  Some products worth thousands of dollars sometimes sell for less than $100 or even pennies.

I also do not know of any other shopping site that gives customers an opportunity to win an auction for a brand new vehicle. What an amazing opportunity!
