Just in time for Christmas, I am celebrating the grand opening of CampingBlogger with a contest for a brand new eTrex Summit® HC, from Garmin™. The Summit is one of the best handheld GPS receivers for hiking, backpacking and general outdoor use. It has a high-sensitivity GPS engine, which allows the Summit to track the GPS signal under some pretty harsh conditions, like thick tree canopy or deep canyons. In addtion, the GPS engine can also process the WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) signal, which increases the accuracy of the GPS receiver. And as if that wasn’t enough, the Summit has an integrated barometric altimeter, which provides better elevation accuracy than the GPS position, and an electronic compass for picking an azimuth even when stationary. It’s a great little handheld and you can learn more about this $229.99 beauty on the Summit HC product page.
To enter the contest, first read the terms and conditions here, then, if you are a resident the United States who is at least 18 years old, just sign-up for email delivery of the CampingBlogger RSS feed (the “Enter your email address” box on the right-side of the page). A confirmation email will be sent to you and you must reply to this email for FeedBurner to add you to the list. So check your spam folder if you don’t see the confirmation email. The winner will be notified via the email address entered. Also, watch the emailed RSS feed for ways to gain additional entries throughout the contest.
The contest will be closed on December 5th, at 12:00 PM EST. Good luck!
Thank you for a great website, and a great prize. CampingBlogger always has some of the best articles, and I’m adding you to my blogroll.

I’ve seen some really whacky contests on the Internet. Things like extra points for linking, blogging about it, or posting comments. I think a lot of the people who posted in this thread thought that was how to enter the contest 🙂
btw – the next contest will be starting in January, for a digital camera (a good one, of course)!
lol, michael – that’s true. maybe next yr you can do a pyramid structure so every person you get to sign up also earns you an extra chance to win. ;^)

Well David, the More people you invite, the lower the odds of you (or I) winning.
But I hope you get a few more Hits to your web page.
I just subscribed and even wrote about your contest here: http://www.dailydollarreport.com/win-a-garmin-gps-receiver/
Hopefully I win this because I want to give it to my father since he travels so much. 🙂
