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.

Solo Stove Give Away and Random Admin Matters

So 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. Since lots of folks are out and about this weekend this will run a bit longer; I will pick the winner on Monday. The winner  will have 48 hours to send their shipping address to theotherryan@yahoo.com or an alternate winner will be selected.

I love contests but they are really labor intensive. Had a ton of fun with the EDC contest but it took a whole lot of time and really dominated the blog for awhile. Think I have about one big contest a year in me. Also I do not currently have any interest in transitioning to being an editor for endless writing contests so there is no plan to go that route.  For the rest of the year I will probably continue the current plan of just giving stuff away as it comes. Everyone seems happy with it so why complicate matters.

Also I am saddened to let you know that Arma Borealis is going dark. The author is pulling the plug for personal reasons. They may or may not pop up again in the future. 

So anyway if you want a Solo Stove just say so.

Contest Interest

Hey All, I am curious how many of you would be interested in participating in a contest.

Final details are to be determined but the broad strokes are as follows. I want to talk about a topic having folks take some pictures and talk about what they use and why. Sharing ideas that have been working for us and collaborating to make all of our systems better. It could be EDC (probably this one first) or gun porn or food storage or whatever. The amount of effort involved will be roughly commensurate with the prizes. I do not expect folks to go to a whole bunch of effort for a prize worth five bucks. If it goes well this could develop into a monthly or bi monthly thing.

Before I put too much effort into getting something good going I want to see if folks are interested in participating. If there is interest I will put something pretty good together and if not I will put my time, energy and resources into other things.

So if you feel like participating in something please let me know in the comments section.

Book Give Away: Win a Free Copy of 299 Days

A brief synopsis of 299 days:
                                                         
Meet Grant Matson: lawyer, father, suburbanite husband who awakens to the fragility of modern society and embarks on a personal journey that introduces him to a world of self-reliance and liberation.
299 Days: The Preparation, the first book in the 299 Days series, depicts the inner struggles Grant must face as he exists in a social system he recognizes as unsustainable and on the verge of collapse, but one in which he has built his life around. What begins as a return to his roots, self-sufficiency and independence, becomes a full blown move to prepare for what may come. Engaging, insightful and a bit suspenseful, follow Grant’s transition from a self-perceived “sheeple” to a full-blown “prepper.” Will his fears come true? Is he an extremist? What if nothing happens? What if something does?
 You can also visit www.299days.com or www.prepperpress.com for additional information.

Anyway if you want the free copy just leave a comment saying so by leaving a comment. The Winner will be announced Friday and will have 7 days to claim the book by sending me their shipping address.
