Oh sure, I post two reviews and you start a contest the next day :) Nice incentive especially since Mrs Stranger has her eyes on that Ariel.  Good thing I have a few more reviews which should be done soon!

I knew that was going to happen to some poor reviewer!

Sorry about the timing, LoneStranger, but thanks for sharing your reviews, whenever you do so. And good luck to Mrs. Stranger.

Yesterday, I was thinking, "Why is there suddenly such an explosion in reviews?" Then I saw the contest, and thought "Of course!"

Can't fault contest-motivated reviews. It's what got me to post my first one. Now my wife claims I'm addicted. She may be right, with my list of items I plan to review. Every time I cross one item off the list, I seem to add two more.

I don't think I've ever seen such a deluge of reviews for a contest before. I guess everyone wants this pack.

Way to go TS on the good prize choice!

It took two to tango on this one G00SE! Osprey has really stepped up to the plate and done a lot of outreach to their audience. I'm very excited to read all these new reviews and welcome a bunch of new folks to the community.
