Final Friday Giveaway: Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide || Plus, Flex Capacitor winners!

Big shipment #1 of 2. Ready for the PO.

Next week the second edition of The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide will be officially released.

If you pre-ordered a copy from me, it was shipped earlier this week. If you order one now, it will be shipped within 24 hours. If you ordered the hardcopy or Kindle edition from Amazon, it will ship or downloaded on March 7.

Multiple copies of the Gear Guide have been given away already. Most recently, Sierra Designs awarded two people with the Gear Guide and a new Flex Capacitor 40-60 Pack. Congrats to the winners:

  • Laura H. of Denver, and
  • Tom T. of Benton, Miss.

Final giveaway

For those unlucky so far, I’ll do one more giveaway. The winner will be drawn tomorrow morning at around 8 AM MST, before Amanda and I take off for spring skiing at nearby Eldora.

The giveaway is now closed. The winner was Ricky R, lucky #306.

    Andrew, I ordered a copy a couple of weeks ago, and am yet to receive it. Soon?

      The book does not officially release until March 7. I tried to make it really clear on the website that any orders until that time would be a pre-order. But I got a bit anxious, and all pre-orders have now been shipped, starting on Monday. You should have received a Completed Order email; if not, check spam.

        I did get the email. Hopefully soon!
