1st Week Winner in Love Letter Photo Contest: Steps on the Appalachian Trail

April 19th, 2011

Steps halfway on the AT, courtesy Robert Nicholas

It took me nearly 40 years to reach these steps. These steps lead to a trail of a life of dreams unfullfilled, heartache, blood, sweat, tears, joy, War, Marriage, and the birth of my children. These steps are the result of trials and tribulations of a life lived and dreaming of a day I’d be able to walk down these steps. The sights and sounds that led to these steps will never be forgotten. And the first time I stood and listened to what was at the bottom of these steps made me realize how amazing this planet is and how lucky I was at that moment to be standing in that spot to hear those sounds. The day I walked back up these steps and back to my life was a sad day and happy day. I don’t know when I’ll see these steps again but I will keep walking and living until I can walk back down these steps again someday and back to the Appalachian Trail.

Robert Nicholas lives in Olathe, Kansas. He grew up hiking in Missouri. Rob hiked this section of the AT near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia on April 9, 2011 while out east on a business trip, and plans to chip away at the 40-mile long Maryland Trail each year until it’s completed. His favorite weekend activity is hiking with his wife and two daughters.

Do you have a stretch of trail that brings you back in tune with nature, or maybe even your own urban sanctuary in the midst of a whirring city? We want to see and hear about the places that make you whole, that fill your heart with solitude and wildness — the places that have the power to restore the human spirit.

Wend Magazine April Friday Photo Contest: Trail Running

April 7th, 2011

via Wend Magazine:

Despite April’s slogan, April showers bring May flowers, it’s a month of increasing sun and warmth for most of us. It’s a playful month, one that beckons spring while flirting with winter. And, as last year’s April Friday Photo contest reminded is, “April itself welcomes growth, and the opening of an entirely new season in which to play in the great outdoors, among the glory of the world’s forests, jungles and overwhelming landscape of trees galore.” So, this year, this April, we happily play homage to one of the most enjoyable ways a human can enjoy the wooded landscape, through April’s Friday Photo Theme: Trail Running.

Maybe you never hit the trails without a partner or your favorite podcast. Maybe you do it for absolute solitude. Maybe you run because your cardiologist says it’s good for you. Maybe you blow snot rockets with pride and trip over unassuming tree roots with relish. How ever, why ever you trail run, we’d like to see it.

Show us your favorite or most hated trail run. Show us the muddiest, the muckiest of all trails or the most magnificent dusty path you’ve ever pounded your two feet on. We want to see photographs that demonstrate trail running in all its grit and (or) glory.

Send us your shots! And our winners will win an entirely re-vamped trail running wardrobe, including a pair of men’s or women’s Saucony ProGrid Pwomen’s Saucony ProGrid Peregrine trail blazing shoes, a Saucony men’s (or women’s) Transition Sport Top II, as well as a men’s or women’s Boston pant.

In addition, winners will get the perfect companion for a long trail runt an ultra comfortable, gender-specific hydration pack from Osprey. Gents, you’ll receive a Viper 10 pack; ladies will receive the Verve 10 pack.

Want your own chance at winning? Submitting is easy! Just fill out this submission form and make sure to include a description of the photo you submit and the address of where you want your gear sent in the body of the message. Good luck!

You can submit photos from anywhere in the world, but we will only ship prizes to addresses within the continental UnitedStates.

Feel free to submit as often as you’d like. We’ll choose a winner every Friday. And help us spread the word. We have a new theme (and a new set of prizes) every month.

Friday Round-Up: And The Winner Is…

March 4th, 2011

Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. Since we just wrapped our “Instead of driving, I…” contest, we’ve decided to pay homage to human-powered transportation for all of March. Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!

Last month, we asked our fans how they they got around — without driving — and we were flooded with awesome responses. So, without further ado, below, we’ve listed out the winners of the “Instead of driving, I…” contest. Congratulations to the winners! Watch out for a cool, new video on the topic coming soon. And to everyone out there who chooses to use their own power to get them from place to place: thank you for leading the way. Let’s keep it up!

Contest: Instead of driving I…

February 16th, 2011

At Osprey headquarters in Cortez, CO we strive to reduce our carbon footprint as best we can. One easy way is to drive less. In rural Southwest Colorado, we really only have two options: carpooling in winter months and riding our bikes in the spring, summer and fall seasons. We do have a couple hardy souls that ride during the dead of winter!

We’re curious about our fans who live in urban areas. You have access to a variety of commuting options instead of driving. Light rail, buses, trains, walking, skateboarding, scooters, rollerblades, swimming… all provide alternatives to get to work, to the gym, to the coffee shop, to band practice, to the library. All without driving.

Begin your statement with: “Instead of driving, I…” We’ll pick the top 10 most creative statements and send you a pack of your choice from the Momentum, Metron, Flap, 24/7 or Resource Series. Your statement may even appear (anonymously) in a cool new video we are producing called, you guessed it: “Instead of Driving I…”

Contest ends Monday February 28, 2011. In the event that a requested product is not in stock, Osprey Packs, Inc. reserves the right to substitute a product of equal or greater value. Winners will be picked and notified on March 1, 2011.
