I would absolutely love to win one of these packages! The bedrock sandals would be so sweet to have, ive got over a 1,000 miles on my current pair! Everything else would be great to have and put some milea on them as well.

This giveaway would be a godsend! I am a 50 year old mother of two daughters and I would love to begin my 50’s hiking the PCT! I have NO heat what so ever though.

I have been a day hiker for years and I’m SO ready to start thru-hiking but I work part time at a super market so it will take me years to gear up.

Thank you so much for this giveaway and good luck everyone!!
