Reminder: Win a Copy of The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide

gg cover

Just a quick reminder as we wind down the week. I’m giving away eight copies of Andrew Skurka’s new book The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide (review here!). The book is full of all kinds of practical advice from a guy who has logged more hiking miles than probably just about anyone else on the planet. You’ll find gear list, tips for improving your experience on the trail and insights on planning a long distance trek.

To win one of these copies all you need to do is drop me an email at with a subject of “Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide.” Then, in the body of the message, write me a brief note telling me which of Andrew’s big adventures you would most like to do yourself. He has plenty to choose from and you’ll find them all listed here.

So far I’ve had a steady flow of entires coming in but not an overwhelming number just yet. That means you have a great chance of winning one of these books. Oh, and in case anyone is wonder, the Andrew’s Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim hike in the Grand Canyon is clearly the favorite hike amongst Adventure Blog readers thus far.

The contest will run through March 31st and shortly there after I’ll pick and announce the winners at random. Good luck everyone!
