The Hiking in Finland Advent Calendar

Hendrik over at Hiking In Finland (a fine UL oriented blog) is doing a great holiday giveaway. I'll be taking a shot so prepare yourself! :D

Well done, Hendrik!

From Hiking In Finland:

The Hiking in Finland Advent Calendar

Over the next 24 days you will be able to win each day a piece of kit. From pullovers over backpacks to climbing gear, each day one post with a sweet piece of kit goes online, and will be raffled off to a lucky Hiking in Finland reader. There will be some rules and tasks, though:

1. You only can win once. This adds a bit of a gamble to the whole calendar, and makes you take risks with when & where you post your comment. Of course if you don't win one day, you still can try your luck the next day!
2. Generally you only need to comment to participate, but on some occasions there might be additional stuff you need to do to qualify.
3. It is open to everyone. As in from Afghanistan to Zambia, I send prices everywhere. And as I pay the postage out of my pocket, don't expect priority & signed shipping for huge items.
4. If you win, and I don't hear from you by the next day via Email, you lose and it goes to the second in line.
5. Posts go online in the morning at six, and entering closes at noon - Finnish time. I then will annex the post with the winner (+ 2nd and 3rd places) to keep updates to a minimum.
6. You can't bribe me or anyone involved to win. You use the item(s) on your own responsibility. Use common sense.

That's it, really. The Advent Calendar starts on Thursday, the 1st of December. Become a Follower, subscribe to the RSS feed, follow on Facebook, Google Plus or Twitter to stay up-to-date and don't miss it!

  1. Hi,

    Thank you so much for posting; it is a rain drop post. But I would like to tell
    you, How to Hike in the Indian Peaks Wilderness?

    Items you will need
    1- PermitDaypack
    2- Drinking water
    3- Cash

    Step 1- Fill out an Indian Peaks Wilderness Permit Application.

    Step 2- Consider hiking in a less popular area for a better
    chance of getting a permit to camp overnight along the trail. ecome available.

    Step 3- Choose the trail you want to take. One of the most
    popular areas is the Brainard Lake Recreation Area.

    Step 4- Bring cash to pay the parking and usage fee at
    Brainard Lake Recreation Area.

    Come prepared for the rapidly changing
    weather that’s typical of this area, including lightning and thunderstorms that
    occur on summer afternoons.

    Don’t drink water found in streams or
    creeks. Instead, bring your own drinking water or carry a water purification
    kit to treat the water.
