The Latest Rendition of Gear Giveaway Roundup

It's time to once again to round up all the giveaways going on in the outdoor blog-o-realm. There are a number of good ones that you will not want to miss out on, so let us get right to it.

First and foremost, we (i.e. Appalachia & Beyond) are having our first ever giveaway. Head over to our giveaway post to check out how you can enter for a chance to win an original Random Joy Fine Arts and Photography 16x24 "Orion Sky" print, suitable for framing and hanging on your wall for a mighty fine display. You better hurry as this is a Memorial Day giveaway and you only have until Sunday night to get entered. We will pick the winner on Memorial Day, Monday May 30th.

The next great giveaway is over at our good friend Karl's blog, Live Free and Hike New Hampshire. Up for grabs is one of 5 copies of Haunted Hikes of New Hampshire. This is a great giveaway opportunity as Karl is allowing everyone to have up to 5 entries provided you follow the entry details correctly. You have until May 31st to get in on this giveaway so don't wait too long, times fun when you're having flies... erm "scratch that, reverse it."

The next giveaway is another opportunity to win a Daily Hiker T-Shirt from none other than the fine folks at This time around you need to send them your funniest Hiker Photo. All the details are on their giveaway post but the short of it is to get a pic sent to them by early next week before they pick the best ones.

These next couple of giveaways are for the fisherman/ladies out there. You know, the ones that lurk on our blog secretly wishing to be hikers/backpackers... Just messing guys, I'm sure quite a few of you have to do some major hiking to get to those secret honey holes.

Ok, first up for the fishing crowd, the gang over at Four Season Anglers, have quite the tackle/gear package for a lucky Facebook fan when they get to Fan #100. As a matter of fact, they give you two ways to enter. First, like their Facebook Page. Second, refer a friend to like there page. Of course the friend has to "Like" the page for that second entry. As it stands, they currently have 53 fans. So what are you waiting for? Head on over and get your name in the drawing.

The second giveaway for the line casters out there is brought to you by Cofisher, the author of blog Windknots and Tangled Lines blog. Up for grabs is a fishing app for your iPad/iPhone. All you need to do is head over to Windknots & Tangled Lines for the details, but I'll tell you this, you'll have to write a 2 paragraph essay and you'll have to do it before Friday May 27th 7:00pm MST.

Well that's all we've got this week. If anyone else is having a contest/giveaway that we might have overlooked accidentally, please let us know. We will make an addendum to this post or save it for the next roundup.

Oh by the way, be sure to check out the Outdoor Blogger Network at some point Thursday, they should be getting another Gear Review Giveaway Opportunity up real soon like.

Happy Trails and Good Luck,
Tim and Robin
