Two years! Happy Birthday to our baby!
Like every two-year-old, EastCoastTester.com suffers from occasional temper tantrums, meltdowns and growing pains.
But, as every parent knows, these past two years have been liberally sprinkled with periods of unfettered joy, some challenges (more hours in the day, please!) and immense gratitude. And cars. And road trips.
We started EastCoastTester.com, an online portal for East Coast stories about cars, cruising and capturing the best of Atlantic Canada, at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. We had no idea how either would turn out! Our event business came grinding to a halt. Our writers stopped travelling and hunkered down in Atlantic Canada.
We all slowed down and took stock.
Year One was a whirlwind of East Coast car shows, meeting the enthusiasts, owners and passionate people behind the exciting car culture of Atlantic Canada.
Year Two saw us starting to move around the country again. Schedules returned to a frenetic, pre-pandemic pace.
Full steam ahead!
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE PAST 12 MONTHS
This morning, after eight weeks of non-stop moving putting events together, Garry and I watched the sun rise over Gore Bay on Manitoulin Island from our perch at the edge of the bay.
We toasted EastCoastTester.com’s two-year anniversary with mugs of coffee, took a few deep breaths and thanked the universe for your support, your enthusiasm, our family and our rich full life in the fast lane.
To the many people involved in the success of EastCoastTester.com over the past two years, thank you.
We have to start with Our Testers, a talented, passionate crew of fine writers, artists, photographers, drone pilot, auto industry experts and all-round professionals. Thank you!
We would especially like to thank YOU, our fans, readers, followers and viewers. We truly appreciate you giving us your valuable time and attention and know that, without you, we simply wouldn’t be here.
We would also like to thank Hagerty Insurance for advertising on our site from the beginning.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!
WE HOPE YOU KEEP RIDING ALONG WITH US… BUCKLE UP AND LET’S ROAD TRIP!
