Partnering with TheGearHouse and a sweet Klymit GIVEAWAY!

TheGearHouse is now an official sponsor of Simply Adventure!

It’s been in the works for months, and I am delighted to finally be able to announce:

TheGearHouse is an official sponsor
of the Simply Adventure trip!

Run by gear enthusiast Chris Pund, is what I’d like to think of as the small-town version of Backcountry. His online retail shop helps adventurers outfit themselves with everything from camping cookware to quality climbing ropes – you get the same pristine gear, but with a community-minded attitude and a truly personal customer experience. Niko and I are stoked to have TheGearHouse onboard for our adventure.

To celebrate our new partnership, we’ve got two gear giveaways to get you stoked on new gear for new adventures in the new year. In addition, you can head over to TheGearHouse’s sale section to snag sweet deals on products like the Jet Boil cooking stove, an ultralight Big Agnes Fly Creek tent, Thermarest sleeping pads, and more.

The Klymit Cush Pillow and Seat is a sweet inflatable camping tool. The first giveaway will be running all week long on the blog, with your chance to win a sweet Klymit Cush Ultralight Pillow/Seat! This nifty cushion compresses to a pocket-sized ball, and easily blows up into a customizable seat and/or pillow.

How can you get your hands on this versatile camping product?

First, leave a comment below, telling us what adventure you are most looking forward to in 2013 – it can be anything from summiting Mount Whitney to camping out in your backyard.

    “50 by 40”. (50 states by 40 years old!).This year I plan to knock off my last 5 States. We plan on travelling to Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma! Planning the adventure is almost as fun as being on it!

      50 by 40 sounds like such a great plan! I’m shooting for 50 by 25, hopefully I’ll be able to hit my last seven states during this yearlong trip.

      And yes, planning is half the fun. :) Good luck on your adventures!

        You can do it! 50 by 25 is quite an accomplishment. It’ll make people jealous!! Happy, safe travels to you. btw stumbled upon your blog while googling “camping at Walmart!” Even though I am not a climber, I do appreciate your writings on your outdoor adventures. Great reading!
