What about a photo contest where the trailspace hat must be included in the shot? (If it hasn't already been suggested). Fully clothed, of course.

I have had the "whats a Trailspace" question while on my backcountry forays. I typically take the time to explain the community/site a bit more in depth with those interested.

I also give those I speak with a sticker(I stay stocked) and tell them to check it out.

No purchase necessary. ;)

You could also probably pm Alicia with "Stickers" in the subject line with your mailing address in the message. I'm sure she probably has a few layin around she could hook ya up with. :p

I just put a few on my Stanley One Handed Ninteen 13 thermos/bottle thingamabobber today.

I'm all "Trailspaced" out. :)

Good ideas, guys!

Yup, stickers are free. Just send your mailing address to stickers@trailspace.com and Seth will send you a batch.

Trailspace Trail Runner Caps are available from our friends at Gear for Adventure.

I don't want to sound cheeky, Dave, but what about a t-shirt with the new logo design? Could be one of those print to order sites that do it?

I'm diggin that dirtbag-look, Gary.

(Dirtbag is the right word, isn't it? Or is that just California?)

Hmm... t-shirt... contest...

Seth has suggested a design-a-shirt contest. Maybe we'll be able to pull something like that together after this month's haiku contest.

Schwag? I am thinking of something but it doesnt seem to be what you are talking about?

 Like this?

Something like that. Schwag is just a reference to the prize(to be determined) that one receives as an award for a contest, etc.

Basically just slang terminology.

I'd also love to do this, including Trailspace stickers as an option too.

We'll definitely keep it in mind for another contest.

I love to see pictures of Trailspace members and their hats and stickers getting outdoors.

OOO........OOOO  I know where!  But I'll remain quiet on this one. 

Shirts would be cool. I preach Trailspace whenever I get the chance.

Am I slow or what? I just noticed the new logo, when dat happen?

Ya know what would also be cool.............Trailspace sew on patches for those of us who don't wear the baseball style caps.

Pyjamas would be even better. Or some kind of smoking jacket, with a gold Trailspace crest badge. Badges, we need badges! Wake up Trailspace!

Even better than "guess the place", Rick, would be straight to the "guess the Shwag!"

those of us who don't wear the baseball style caps.

Why do you hate America?

I am pretty kunfoozed by your "hate America" reference.

Thanks.

Irony. Sometimes it gets filtered out, other times it just isn't there at all.

I also don't wear baseball caps that much.

Ok, it is like a meme (what's a meme?): Americans and baseball, America equals freedom but attacking baseball behaviour is attacking freedom, and so on and so forth. Sorry, I spent too much time on Reddit, back when it was not like Reddit.

That's funny, Rick.

Being a slap-head, I am jealous of your eye-catching headwear and the fact that you would look just as cool without it.

Ya know, like a embroidered patch that one could sew on a hat, piece of clothing, a dog, and sew on and sew forth.  

I was thinking we could have a contest to see who is the first one and gets the largest Trailspace tatoo in the most visable spot.  Who needs to wear a Trailspace hat when you can have a rad Trailspace tat on your forehead, eh?

Yes, I like that idea, a sew-on badge. Sorry if it seemed like I was taking the mickey - I intended it to read light heartedly, so as not to sound too 'needy' for Dave and Co, who must get a bit exasperated when people like me keep asking for more merchandise incarnations, even when it is a bit tongue and cheek.

I should be more straightforward.

Jon
