Reviewer Bill Garlinghouse Wins Old Town Kayak Package


Congratulations, Bill Garlinghouse, who won an $880 kayak setup, thanks to Johnson Outdoors!

Congratulations to community member and gear reviewer Bill "L.Dog" Garlinghouse!

Bill just won a paddling package, including an Old Town kayak, Carlisle paddle, and Extrasport PFD, all thanks to Johnson Outdoors ($880 value). Plus, we're sending him a Trailspace Trail Runner Cap to wear on his outdoor adventures in Michigan and beyond.

Bill's Hennessy Hammock review was selected randomly from all qualifying outdoor gear reviews submitted since April 1 (our members shared 303 reviews during this contest period!).

Among other backpacking gear, Bill reviewed his Hennessy Hammock Ultralight Backpacker Asym:

"Perfect for the solo backpacker in areas where there are lots of trees. Most comfortable sleep this side sleeper has had in the outdoors."

For sharing his reviews (including three Killer Reviews!), Bill wins an Old Town Camden 106 kayak, a Carlisle Magic Plus paddle, and an Extrasport Equinox DLX PFD. Have fun paddling and exploring with your new kayak setup, Bill!

Thanks to Bill, and everyone who has shared reviews of his or her outdoor gear with their fellow Trailspace community members.

If you didn't win this time, stay tuned for our next write-a-review gear giveaway starting tomorrow.

Congratulations, Bill!

I had to laugh while preparing this blog and read the following in your profile's About section:

"When I'm done with the AT, I don't know what's next.  Maybe I'll buy a boat ..."

EXCELLENT! You put out some great reviews this month, L Dog. I hope we keep you around! A lot of folks seem to disappear after a contest. You're reviews are too good to end!

Enjoy the new ride, Bill. I just realized that you are a newer member to TS. Your reviews read like a seasoned review-writing veteran. Always insightful and helpful. Glad the kayak is going to someone so well-deserving.

Thanks for all the kind words folks.  I'm not going anywhere.  Well except for a long hike this summer.  But I'll be sporting my Trailspace hat, taking lots of pics of gear in action, and I'll be back in the fall, raring to go.
