Polar explorer Eric Larsen likes cold weather. I mean he really likes cold weather. In fact, he happens to think that the best part about the arrival of fall is that the snow and cold temperatures of winter are not far behind. To celebrate that very sentiment he has launched The Cold is Coming Sweepstakes on his Facebook page where he is giving us the opportunity to score some great gear.
Larsen has partnered with several outdoor gear manufacturers to award prizes to one lucky winner of the contest. All told, more than $1100 worth of gear will be given away from such companies as MSR, Yaktrax, Polartec, Granite Gear, and of course Wenger. To enter all you have to do is go to the sweepstakes entry page and “like” the various companies involved with the promotion. Then, fill out the form with your first name, email address and where you’d like to be off on an adventure of your own at this very moment. That’s all there is to it. Submit your entry and you could be taking home all of the great swag.
If anyone knows a thing or two about cold weather gear, it’s Larsen. His various expeditions have taken him to the North and South Pole as well as the summits of Everest and Denali. Still, he may be a little over zealous in his pursuit of freezing temperatures. While most of us are content to enjoy the cool air and beautiful colors of autumn, he is counting the days until the arrival of winter, hence this sweepstakes. Perhaps the winner of all this gear will find a reason to enjoy winter a bit more too.
Good luck to everyone!
