With new prizes from SmartWool, Deuter, The North Face, Timbuk2, Lazer Helmets, and Buff, today we re-launch our ‘Checkpoint: SPOT’ nationwide treasure hunt! Go to CPSpot.com for the details on nine new checkpoints and nine new prizes. The contest, a project built by GearJunkie.com and Spot LLC, offers a real treasure hunt where you decipher a clue, zoom in on the map, and then get outdoors to claim your prize!
Last month, a CP SPOT participant climbed Mount Rainier in Washington state to claim a “year’s supply” (52 pairs!) of Wigwam socks. Other participants scrambled to the base of El Capitan in Yosemite, circumnavigated Devils Tower in Wyoming, and hiked portions of the Appalachian Trail. They won watches from Suunto, Salomon shoes, knives from Wenger and Gerber, and one winner nabbed a SCI’CON bike case that retails for $1,400.
The ‘Checkpoint: SPOT’ contest is open to anyone with a SPOT satellite device. We are working to launch a smartphone version of the contest for November. For now, get outside with your SPOT and get on the hunt. Nine primo new outdoors products are waiting for you to check-in and claim them as your prize!
