Hello. You really need to list the end time for contests in your rules. I just assumed it was 11:59 pm ET like most other contests :(

Hello. I am an avid hiker of the NCT and i plan to do a thru-hike of the AT in 2022, in high hopes that the restrictions will be lifted and the Trail Association will recognize complete thru hikes again. I could use some new gear, but I wish everyone luck in this prize entry. Win or loose. This is a great opportunity.

Great idea! Cottage companies under one platform, supporting each other. Makes it easy on the shoppers too!!!

I don’t have Instagram and I am not on most social media. I love hiking/trekking but could not enter this last year as well due to Instagram requirement, and who does not like good gear for free :). Can this be changed please?

Love getting gear from GGG – and those tiny, practically weightless (!!) toothbrushes they stick in every box for free have kept my teeth sparkly even under the worst conditions :)
