IntrepiDan Giveaway ContestIf you’ve watched the videos of my Appalachian Trail thru-hike, you’ve probably noticed it hasn’t always been a walk in the park. I’ve experienced subfreezing temperatures, got introduced to Winter Storm Grayson, found myself walking in circles, battled a rodent invasion and slipped and fell on my butt…a lot. Despite moments of cursing at frozen water, the trail has been an amazing experience that is well worth it, and I’ve learned a lot.

One of the things I’ve learned (along with avoiding night hikes!) is the importance of good gear. Having the right gear is like having a little trail magic. It keeps you comfortable and safe during your journey. Since we could all use a little magic sometimes, I’m launching something really cool: The Ultimate Trail Magic Package give-away.
