I offer learning-intensive and adventure-rich guided backpacking trips in California, Alaska, West Virginia, southern Utah, and the Rocky Mountains.
Thru-hikes and high routes, plus related guides, gear lists, and how-to information.
My writings on backpacking gear, supplies, and skills, and sometimes about running, hunting, and life events.
High route guides, a free food e-book, and signed copies of The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide.
Sierra Designs is putting on a giveaway that you’ll want to get in on, through this Thursday (Feb 24). Enter to win a Flex Capacitor 40-60 Pack and a signed copy of The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide.
Update. This contest has closed.
Congrats to the winners:
Can you enter more than once?
In the interest of fairness, no, please do not.
The terms and conditions say nothing about giving away a backpack.
“6. Prizes. Two (2) Winners will receive (1) Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide, 2nd Edition book. No Cash Value. Tax and Shipping Included. Odds of winning a prize depend on number of eligible entries received…”
The page reads,
“Enter to win a signed copy of Andrew Skurka’s The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide (Second Edition) & a Flex Capacitor Backpack! Get it before the book is officially released on March 7th.”
Not sure why the page and the fine print are inconsistent. Assume the pack is included, too.
I wonder when will I be able to purchase a new model of “Flex Capacitor”? At the end of February, it seems that there is no content on the homepage yet. I am sorry to ask another question here. But I would like to have a “Flex Capacitor” too.
The Flex Capacitor is available now, https://goo.gl/XySFQH. There are Smalls and Mediums still available; the Large has been sold out for now.
If you are referring to the “new” shipment that is supposed to arrive in late-Feb, which has a few tweaks from the original, I wouldn’t look for any copy on the website to this effect. The only difference you’ll see is that the sizing will have changed — from Small, Medium, and Large, to Small/Medium and Medium/Large.
When will the winner be announced?
It’s SD’s raffle. Let me check in with them.
