Every year HMG sponsors one thru hiker on each of the great American long distance trails, the AT, the PCT, and the CDT. You could be our sponsored hiker! Here's the deal: we give you an HMG pack that's suitable for your hike and in return you send us blog posts about your progress and experiences along the trail. To apply, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (subject: 2013 Thru Hiking Sponsorship) answering these questions:
1. Who are you? Which of the AT, PCT or CDT are you hiking in 2013? Why this trail, why now?
2. Do you have a unique story or perspective on your hike or life in general that will make your blog posts special?
3. Why do you want an HMG pack for your hike? Have you, or are you ready to, adopt the "light" approach to your gear?
We can't wait to hear from you!
