Wish I knew how long it takes to fly from New York to louisiana. I’m guessing more than 4 hours. Lol it’s been exciting to read everyone’s posts anyway. Didn’t think I would win anyway. Pfft I can’t win 1 dollar let alone this amount. But it’s fun to play anyway! Whom ever won, Congrats!

Few questions here, I do not have a facebook profile so I do not know where y’all are flying from. Also I have received an email about the 5k a week forever prize from giveaway 3080. I was supposed to respond before sept. 3rd being the deadline.. so today is the winner of the 1830 giveaway. When is the date of the 3080 winner selection date?

Thank you Amanda C., PCH Creative for that great blog to all of us about what is going on for the big day!!!

Well, I’ve read Ms. Danielle’s blog; I can now say you are not coming to see me!!! So, I’m very excited to see who wins tomorrow!!! But, I’m sad too, :-( but very happy, happy for the person who wins this wonderful gift from PCH!!!

Well, I’m thinking it would be in my best interest to stop entering and playing all these games everyday, in hopes that I would win a BIG MEGA SUPER Prize from PCH!!! I’ve been doing this since 2007 and I have never won anything big. The odds are really against me too, you have never come to my town. I know my family would be happy too, they think it is a wast of time and I will never win and I could use my time in a better way and I am thinking they might be right.

I just wanted to say Congratulations to all the winners this year 2013!!!

Everyone is talking about winning this money. If I won I would put myself through school, after that build orphanages in Russia, Africa, and everywhere that needs them. I would put other people before myself. I would give starving children what they need. I would have a career and live off the money I made from that and give the PCH winnings to the world in need!!

Benjamin Ward said...

California maybe?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Joseph Aga said...

It’s not Colorado… You are bordered in on all sides.
I think it is someone in a state on the west side of the US. Now, it might also be a southwest state. Good luck to all! Maybe the flight was just barely under 4 hours. If they have a private jet, and a big one, they could in fact reach the far western states in 4 hours. 3 hours and 59 minutes…. It’s possible, and it has to be a state that is landlocked but not completely. WA, OR, CA are my guesses depending on whether its someone who lives on the east side of the state… And north makes more sense than south which would take longer.

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Joseph Aga said...

Oh yes it must be because, the first clue is 9am EST… That’s 6am PST which makes much more sense based on the fact that they start early In the morning. Why would it be 9am Eastern Time unless its someone from the west?

Based on the Facebook clues about 1-70 running through it & the state’s name being longer than 5 letters, it’s either Indiana or Illinois. If you don’t live in those states, you didn’t win today. Posting your sob story won’t change that. Sorry for you financial issues, I have them too, but those are the facts.

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Rosemary McCoy said...

With the clues given so far, the only state I can think of would be…….ARIZONA!
Flight time: 4 hours , 19 minutes
Not sure if they have visited Glendale, Arizona
We are not really completely landlocked with the Colorado River flowing through us
ARIZONA is “7″ letters
We start with a VOWEL – “A”
Our temperature will be in the 90s today AND
we have a U.S. Route 70 (versus an I-70)
…….stay tuned!
