Gear Giveaway! Andrew Skurka’s Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide
I have three – count em, THREE – copies of Andrew Skurka’s new book, the Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide (details in this document here) to give away to Calipidder.com readers!
This book isn’t just a rated list of current gear like you’d find in a magazine, it’s all about how to choose the right gear for you. I picked up a copy (mine is even signed, nyah nyah) at the Outdoor Retailer show in January and have been thumbing through it ever since.
The book is well organized and nice to look at with many full color photos, charts, and plenty of advice to help you fill your backpack with the best gear for YOU. I see two really great audiences for this book: first, the novice backpacker who is overwhelmed by the choices at their local REI, and second, the experienced backpacker who is looking to upgrade their outdated kit. That said, it’s a great refresher for anyone who likes to hit the trail with a backpack on their back.
So, how can you win one of the three copies? Anyone can enter using one or all of the following methods.
1. Leave a comment on this post about the next piece of gear you’re expecting to buy/replace and why.
2. Share this post on your own Facebook profile.
3. Tweet a link to this blog post using the hash tag #calipiddergear
If you do all three, you get three chances. Two = two chances, and so on. You’ll have a bit over a week to enter since I’m going to be out of town. I’m closing the door to entries on Wednesday, April 4, at noon Pacific Time.
I’ll draw three winners by random and post the winners here, on Facebook, and on Twitter. It’ll be your job to contact me (via the handy contact link on this website) to verify your entry and shipping address.
