Contest Update

Hey Folks, Just want to update you on our super awesome EDC contest. To recap. The broad strokes were this. To share and discuss the stuff we carry around every day AKA EDC. Taking pictures of our stuff and talking about it was my goal.

The prizes are as follows:
1st Place: 3 Sport Berkey Water Bottles donated by LPC Survival ($69 value)
2nd Place: 1 Blackhawk Holster donated by ($50 value)
3rd Place:  1 Snare-Vival-Trap cough garote cough donated by Camping Survival ($17 value)

Wildcard: This one goes to whoever I want to give it to for whatever reason I feel like. It will be a grab bag donated by yours truly. The exact makeup is TBD depending on what I have lying around  and may include books, gear, medical stuff or even a couple silver dimes. ($30+  value)

Check out the details and my example post here. 

Anyway the contest is closed (except one big guy who lives off grid in the hinter boonies and is very busy building and traveling that can send me his if he gets it together in before the 10th). I got caught up on posting some more entries today. If you sent an entry you should have received an email from me today. Otherwise the internet ate it or I missed it in the in box. Please forward me the original email if this is the case and I will get it into the contest.

We had 35 entries total which I am super excited about. Honestly this contest exceeded my wildest expectations. You will be seeing entries until the 11th. After that we will talk about the entries and do some voting.

I am leaning towards doing a primary to narrow it down to a top 10 then do a general. Am open to input on this. It just makes more sense to me to narrow down the competition some and then let folks vote on those entries. Am open to thoughts on this.

Anyway I am super excited how this contest is going. It has gotten way more attention than I possibly imagined. Think I will try to do a contest like this 2 or just maybe 3 times a year.

Your blog, your way, however you want to do it will be fine with me.

I got so far as taking the photo, but chickened out of sending it. Sad that even that much is outside my comfort zone.
