Coolest. Camper. Ever. Adventure Contest: Week 8

Man, it’s hard to believe we’re into our last week of the Coolest. Camper. Ever. Adventure Contest. I guess time flies when you’re having fun. So far, the entries have been inspiring and fun; and we’ve loved giving away our weekly prizes from our great sponsors. Speaking of weekly prizes, for our final week of the contest, one lucky entrant is going to receive the Spot Connect.

If you’re not familiar with Spot, it’s a GPS-based device that can be used to pinpoint your location and send an emergency distress signal. You can even use it to “check-in” while you’re out to let folks know that you are OK and to follow along with you on your adventure. And now, with the Spot Connect, you can use your iPhone or Android to send e-mails or texts and post to Facebook or Twitter. Just download the Spot app to your phone, hook up to the Spot Connect via bluetooth, which acts as the uplink to a satellite network. All this, even when you’re out of cellphone or VHF range. So, not only can you send location signals, but send messages too…just about anywhere in the world! All this in a package that is 5oz (w/ batteries), waterproof, and good to up to 21,000ft and down to -10 degrees F. It doesn’t get much cooler than this.

So, come up with your dream adventure with a GO (250 words or less), enter the contest, and be entered to win not just the Spot Connect, but maybe even the opportunity to live out your dream! It’s the last week…
