  49. Charles Robert Wadlingtonsays:

    I hope to win this contest. I have some of the gear already, but not near this quality. I was a distance and trail runner, and rode mountain bike on trails and as fishing trek transportation. After 20 years in the Navy I retired in very good physical condition despite having both shoulders replaced due to in-service injuries. Approximately ten years ago, in my late 40’s, I began having serious back issues. Long story short, degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis, coupled with bi-lateral sciatica and widespread creeping tactile paralysis in both legs. I am now a 100% disabled combat veteran. A few years back, I eventually gave away my bikes to friends older kids and pretty much gave up running. After three operations, and more to follow, I have taken up slack water kayaking and GENTLE trail hikes. Both are usually coupled with fishing. I was due for a left knee replacement…two days ago, that was before COVID. Hopefully June-ish, then the right knee when the left heals. My future goals are to add snowshoe hikes when my knees get replaced, and get to the point where I can do overnight camps again. For me, hiking (daypack with weight) and kayaking are my rehab and my ways to enjoy MAINE. I live in a beautiful place and I am privileged to still be able to enjoy it. Thanks for listening to my story…lol.

    1. Daniel Zweiersays:

      Good luck in your healing Charles! Nature is waiting for you.

  50. Tashi Leesays:

    Thank you so much for the chance to win some much needed gear. It will open up a wonderful world of the great outdoors to someone who needs to reconnect with the beauty of this world.

  51. Colleen Cahillsays:

    Thanks for chance to win a great prize.

  52. Adam Bravosays:

    In a world in a current state of uncertainty, I am blown away by a camping gear giveaway. Really touches my heart and reminds me why we are doing this, what we are doing this for and what we can do when we get out of this. Thanks and I hope I win so I can have some better gear to take my 5 year old daughter out to enjoy and be delighted by the limitless boundaries of the natural world.

    1. Daniel Zweiersays:
