Backpacker Magazine –
Tell us your best (brief) survival tale for the chance to win fantastic gear and equipment!
October is Survival A-Z month, and BACKPACKER wants to hear your best, most harrowing survival stories. Did you have a close scrape with a grizzly? Or was your group hopelessly lost in the mountains? Were you injured and alone in a slot canyon? Five days without water or food? Draw us in, but be brief about it: the stories can be no more than 140 characters long. You can send in replies via Facebook (facebook.com/backpackermag), Twitter (@backpackermag), or by email (email@example.com). Use hashtag #isurvived.
At the end of the month, we'll narrow the field to 10 finalists and put it to a vote via social media. The winner will receive a prize package of 2013 gear and equipment to help him/her survive the next dangerous encounter in the backcountry. Best of luck!
