Solo Stove Give Away

I am pleased to announce that we are going to give away a Solo Stove. Leave a note in the comments section if you would like to be entered into the give away. Only contest entries from registered google (or I think there is a wordpress work around) who "follow" this blog are going to be counted. This is a shameless ploy for regular users who sign in as a guest then leave a name to get off their duff's and sign up to help boost the blog's stats. Signing up for an account is not hard. Obviously like any free online account you could hypothetically put incomplete information that in no way relates to your actual info. So Joe Smith who is 26 could be Tog Flio who is 25 with a different birthday. For those worried about tracking I would submit that 1) It's quite unlikely that anyone is looking at you and 2) If they are going to sites and leaving "anonymous" comments vs signing into google to do the same will not change their search patterns.

I am also pleased to mention the new larger Solo Stove Titan. It's like the original Solo Stove but bigger.  While I haven't had a chance to figgle with one yet I think it would be great for small groups or more of a semi permanent type camp.

So anyway if you want a Solo Stove just say so. The winner will picked on Thursday. The winner will have 48 hours to send their shipping address to theotherryan@yahoo.com or an alternate winner will be selected.

Edited to include:
At least one person wanted to play but strongly objected to getting a google account of any type. Aside from the forest and the trees discussion if you think google is the devil but MSN/ gmail/ yahoo/ whatever is totally safe I would submit you are fooling yourself. That set aside I wanted to give readers maximum options to play. Based on that.....

I will also accept entries if they hot link (click and it goes, not copy then paste into the box up top) to my blog by it's name and the contest elsewhere on the web (another blog, forum, etc whatever) and in their anonamous entry include a link back to that post. 

So what they post would look elsewhere would be something like this
Check out Total Survivalist Liberterian Rantfest. They are running a cool contest for a Solo Stove.  

The entry comment for the contest would look like 
"Hey, I want to win the stove. Here is the link to my post elsewhere www.BobsGunForum.somethingoranother.123.com. -Hoss"

So if an anon/ non google follower comment includes a link to a post elsewhere with those (or similar) hot links it will count. Otherwise it will not. To answer the inevitable question, yes you can enter with a google account AND an anon comment to a post elsewhere.

So now everybody who is slightly motivated and willing to help my site grow, if just out of greed, can enter contests.

Hope that helps folks have a chance to participate.

I would absolutely love a Solo Stove! No better way to brew field java after the Zombie horde's have taken out the Starbucks and their unarmed barristas.

It's been on my wishlist for some time now, but it always seems to get passed over for gun furniture or ammo.

Count me in. Tough to bug out with a propane tank strapped to your back.

I could do so much with the solo stove. Here are just a few things.

1. Use it for it's intended purpose
2. Use it for something else.
3. Figure out how I can make things colder.
4. Figure out how to not make things colder.

Well my adventure starts soon.

Great blog by the way.

I'd like a solo stove too, especially if free - much thanks for the giveaway. I've got a #10 hobo stove and wouldn't mind extras one bit.

Ryan,

I signed up for your feed using my email, and would like to be entered in the give away for the solo stove, but am not sure how to match my "anonymous" comment to my "following" email without entering my email address here in the comments.
