  4. Xavier Lemonsays:

    I think getting additional entries by following the listed companies is a great idea for you and for me. I learned of some cool products that I can’t wait to see on my feed. The way I typically buy: see something advertised, follow on IG, forget, see an ad, do some research and buy from their IG page. I’m excited to learn of these new to me companies just in time for “getting new gear” season.
    I do tons of affiliate marketing for the outdoor but specifically cycling and bike packing communities – would love to work together.

    Cheers and happy outdooring,

  31. Randy Gillespiesays:

    I had my life ripped apart by a drunk driver. My L-4 & L5 are now two pieces of bone. Doctors all say the same. At any time, any place I will lose the use of my legs. I’m wanting to make one more trip up to the mountains I use to when I will visit my Grandfather’s farm. When the work was done I had the rest of the day to adventure everywhere. But the gear I still have in my pack it’s46 years old and has no waist belt to help carry the load. And I have to get something to be able to check in with the Boss. Who says I want to make it so why to spend the money I’m trying to save

  32. Nikkisays:

    Nature provides me therapy. It helps heal my soul and feed my need for adventures! There’s no better place to be on a bad day. Fresh air, birds chirping and the smell of a forest clears my mind!!

  33. March 6,2003 I was hit head-on on my Harley by a Drunk doing 80mph and I almost lost my left leg and have been out of work since then. They spent 8yrs telling my I was going to lose my left leg it was so badly Infected and damaged. Since then I’ve taken up Long Distance Hiking because they told me I couldn’t do it.. Well since then I’ve do a NoBo of the AT and the next year I did a Flip Flop of the AT. I’m not a light weight hiker because I have little to no money on SSDI so I use what I can. After the AT I Solo Canoed the Mighty Mississippi From Lake Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico in a 20yr old Canoe. After That I’ve made 2 attempts to thru hike the PCT and am going to try it again this year. I also made one attempt at the CDT and will someday complete it also !! Me I’m not Afraid of COVID !!! No I’m going to Die Someday In the Great Outdoors with My Mask OFF and My Boots on Enjoying Life !! Everyone needs to Get Out and Take a Hike !! If I win this contest I’ll put all the Great Gear to good use and I’ll be In Heaven .. The Call me Animal and I’ve learned how to really live !!!

  43. Veronica Woodsays:

    I have long been a walker- for exercise, enjoyment, and transportation. But I recently moved across several states to a rural area of Kentucky, adjacent to Lake Cumberland. I am awestruck by the beauty of the wooded areas, and the animal population on my walks across the countryside! At 66 years, I’m aware of the necessity to keep moving to retain functionality as I get older. But in this location, I find hiking more enjoyable than nearly any other pursuits!

  44. The mountain are calling….and life is better from the experience. !!

  45. Sherry Eldridgesays:

    The mountains are calling and I must go.

  46. This Old Man didn’t start hiking until after I almost died in a Motorcycle accident and spent 8yrs fighting to save my left leg ! Now I live on SSDI and hike to Stay Alive … Living on Disability having a chance like this to win gear I need to keep my dreams alive is great !! Thank you for the chance and thank you for all the information you post … I’m always learning thank you !
