    After undergoing ear surgery which well render me totally deaf, having a healing period, then more surgery to have an implant to regain some hearing, it would be amazing to hear sounds of the surroundings from birds, breezes in the trees, the crack of twigs under my feet, conversation between fellow participants. Very good equipment in this prize package from well respected suppliers of high quality. Hoping luck is with me.

  38. Robert Womblesays:

    Can’t imagine there is anything better than being outside in nature. Backpacking, biking, kayaking or anything else to keep the senses fresh and the body ready. Especially teaching youth to enjoy/respect it the same. I mostly enjoy our Troop canoe/kayak trips down the Brazos River with nothing but a backpack with gear! Thank you BP.com & good luck everyone. We are all winners when we give back in some way!

    Turning 74 in a few days. Making up for lost time on hiking trails near and far before 75 comes around.

  41. Solo backpacking trip through high sierras late summer. plan to be out 3 months with food drops. Need to explore the beauty of the back country and just enjoy each mile I travel. New amazing equipment for all my needs. Can’t thank you enough for opportunity to destress after losing job, 90%of income gone. Exhausted trying to keep head above high tide. Now, having chance to discover a new adventure each day will bring my soul to life. Thanks.

  42. Jacqueline McNuttsays:

    These brands are so awesome! Love the recommendations too, so helpful for planning what gear to keep an eye out for! Fingers crossed <3

  50. Steven Petersensays:

    I have had the good fortune to live and play in the inter-mountain west for a number of years. Fortunately there is much wilderness to explore and enjoy only a few minutes away from my door steps. Being prepared for wilderness adventures can make them wonders to reflect upon later, or tell yourself that you’re glad you made it alive outa that had you done better earlier, it just mighta been easier. So proper gear is important and knowing how to use it even more so.

  51. Douglas Walterssays:

    Such great companies on the giveaway list. Whoever wins is going to be super lucky…

  52. Jennifer N Murassays:

    In the words of my adventure education professor in college, “Life should always be lived either on an adventure or planning an adventure”! Pura Vida!
