FGR - 10/28/2011 - Who's Ready to Win Some Stuff?

Seriously, who's ready to win some stuff? There's a few great giveaways going on in the outdoor blog-o-realm so let's get right down to business shall we? First up over at Live Free and Hike New Hampshire, our buddy Karl has two copies of Following Atticus to give away to two lucky readers. It looks like these are hard back copies and they would make for a great gift for someone, or better yet a wonderful edition to your own personal library. You have until Nov. 11 before Karl picks the two lucky winners so get over to his blog for all the entry details.

Next up, Trail Sherpa has launched it's first gear review, offered by none other than our lead sherpa Tim Miner. He's reviewed the Geigerig Hydration System and in so doing has decided to celebrate the first gear review post on Trail Sherpa by giving away a Geigerig 1600 day pack with inline filter. How awesome is that? Pretty dang sweet if you ask me. Like the first giveaway mentioned, there are multiple entries available for this one, but you only have until Nov 3rd to get them in so head over to the review post and get entered now.

What's that? You say you want more chances to win Geigerig? Well in that case, head over to Outdoor Gear TV for your chance to win a Geigerrig 500 daypack. While the pack may not be as big as the 1600, the bladder is still first rate and also includes the inline filter. Perfect for those jaunts in the woods where you don't need a ton of gear with you. The winner of this pack will be posted to Outdoor Gear TV's facebook page at Noon Central time on Halloween so you better hurry up and enter for your chance at this pack today.

As a sneak peak, Outdoor Informer leaked their November giveaway package on their Facebook Page the other day. It looks like a sweet package and just in time for winter hiking. The package will include YakTrax XTR and a HighGear Axio HR multi-functional watch. You can get entered now if you like, just head over to the giveaway sneak peak page. While you are there, go ahead and get one more entry for their Zukes/HiTech giveaway for October. There's only a couple days left to get those entries in for this prize pack so be sure to go back everyday between now and Monday to enter.

That's about all we have this time around. Some really great gear and one fabulous book that is a must read for outdoors and animal lovers alike. We hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the cooler weather that seems to have swept through overnight.

Happy Trails,
Tim and Robin
