We are super excited to present our first giveaway – Talking About Walking!
We know that winter is time for aspiring hikers to gather their gear, plan their trips, and get ready to make their dreams come true. And we want to help you! We have hiked the entire Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Colorado Trail for a total of over 5,000 miles and want to share our knowledge and experience with you. So, we are giving you THREE chances to ask all of your backpacking questions and THREE chances to win a prize package!!
Join us on our Facebook Page – Infinite Geography – January 17, 24, and 31 from 8-9PM EST to ask your questions about long distance hiking, the trails we’ve hiked, backpacking gear, or any other trail related questions you might have and enter for a chance to win one of three awesome prize packages!
Ok, here’s the deal.

One winner will be announced within 24 hours after each our Live Sessions. Once we have our three winners, we will randomly select who will win the Gold, Silver, and Bronze level prize packages.
Gold ($216 value)
Silver ($166 value)
Bronze ($116 value)
We are so excited to have the support of our sponsors! Each of these brands make top quality products that we use and love while we’re on the trail.
Enlightened Equipment specializes in ultralight sleeping bags and quilts. We both use the Enigma model while we’re on the trail, and we can’t say enough good things about this brand. Check out my full review of the Enigma here.
ZPacks makes ultralight backpacks, shelters, sleeping bags, and accessories. We firmly believe that carrying less weight on your back leads to a much more enjoyable experience on the trail – especially if you’re hiking a long distance. Check out my full article explaining the benefits of lightweight hiking here.
Sawyer makes one of the most common water purifiers on trail – the Sawyer Squeeze. We use the Sawyer Squeeze to purify every drop of water we drink while hiking. The Sawyer Squeeze is compact and lightweight and quickly purifies water in the back country to a safe level for drinking. Sawyer also makes a line of insect repellant and treatment products. Take it from someone who got Lyme’s Disease while hiking the Appalachian Trail – don’t overlook the importance of permethrin treatments and insect repellent to avoid unwanted pests.
Buff makes multi-functional head ware perfect for hitting the trail. Buff’s can be used to keep hair back, cover ears for warmth, cover neck for sun protection, etc. I use a Buff whenever I go hiking and have even crossed over into using them for everyday wear. I run cold, so having something readily accessible to cover my ears is awesome!
Of utmost importance to long distance hikers is our feet! We trust and love Darn Tough socks and have used them literally every step of the way. Did I mention they have a lifetime warranty on every pair of socks?
After getting our first pair for the Pacific Crest Trail, we now consider Dirty Girl Gaiters a crucial part of our hiking outfits. Gaiters are typically big, bulky, and an eye sore, but Dirty Girl has changed the game with lightweight gaiters that come in lots of different patterns and colors. Dirty Girl Gaiters go over your sock to the ankle then attach at the back of the shoe with a velcro strip and the toe of the shoe with a shoelace hook. Say goodbye to little rocks, sand, and dirt in your shoes and grab a pair of Dirty Girls.
So, what are you waiting for? Like our page and tune in to our Talking About Walking sessions to learn a little more about long distance hiking and win some cool prizes to help you on your way.
And STAY TUNED as we prepare for our final long distance hike of the Triple Crown – The Continental Divide Trail (CDT). Yep, we are at it again and are so excited to be walking from Mexico to Canada on the CDT. We are dehydrating food and getting ready for our journey beginning in May!!
