From solo lady-adventures in the desert and Big Sur backpacking to sailing off the peninsula of Michigan and summiting 14-ers in Colorado, every entry was worthy of winning. It was phenomenal to see all the different ways everyone gets out to explore the outdoors.
But there could only be one winner.
One story totally stood out to me – partly because it hit pretty close to home. After discovering her love for adventuring outside, our giveaway winner realized her Jansport backpack just isn’t cuttin’ it anymore. Casey, I’ve totally been there too! To help you bring your outdoor explorations to the next level, I’m hooking you up with a sweet new hydration system – and I expect you to really put it through the ringer as you journey to new destinations and really let your newfound adventure spirit blossom!
“This photo is of me hiking the Barton Creek Greenbelt in Austin, TX. I recently graduated college and have been spending some time this summer exploring the U.S. a bit more. While in Austin, I decided to check out the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Imagine my dismay when I got there and the creek was dry! A GeigerRig Rig 500 hyrdation pack would’ve made the sun a lot more bearable. My back and hips would’ve been cooler and happier what with the air drive ventilation and the load distribution that the GeigerRig pack provides. My good ole Jansport served me well carrying my books through highschool and college, but I sure would love to upgrade to a more adventure-friendly pack- especially seeing as I’m about to take on the Pacific Northwest in a few weeks where I will be hiking a-plenty.“
Congrats, Casey! To claim your winnings, send an e-mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org – and we’ll get you hooked up with your new gear!
