Win a Copy of The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide by Andrew SkurkaPosted on the 22 March 2012 by Kungfujedi
Awhile back I wrote a review of Andrew's new book The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide and gave it high marks for providing all kinds of useful information. The book is an essential addition to any hiker's library and offers tips on planning for a hike of nearly any length. It offers fantastic insights into what gear to take along on your adventures and teaches you how to shave ounces off your pack to make for a more enjoyable time on the trail.
I think The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide is a great resource for any backpacker and I think you'll agree. That's why I'm giving away eight copies of the book to readers of my blog. Yep, that's right, I have eight copies of Andrew's book to share with you. To win a copy of the book, all you have to do is send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line that reads: "Ultimate Hikers Gear Guide." Then, in the body of your message, tell me which of Andrew's adventures you would most like to do yourself and why. That could be an epic hike through Alaska and the Yukon, a Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim adventure in the Grand Canyon, or a short hike along the Colorado Trail. He has plenty of great hiking adventures to choose from, so tell me which one you'd love to do.
As for me, I'd love to follow in Andrew's footsteps and make a circumnavigation of Yellowstone on foot. Yellowstone is one of my favorite destinations in the United States and I can't imagine how spectacular it would be to see it in this manner.
The contest is open through March 31st, so you have plenty of time to enter. On April 1st I'll pick the eight winners and random and ship out your copy of the book. Good luck to all who enter and I look forward to reading your entries.
