The First Giveaway!!

Well, it is time for a giveaway contest, and up for grabs is a new Katadyn MyBottle Microfilter.  It comes with one filter, and removes bacteria, reduces chemicals and improves the taste of water.  It is even effective in dirty water!  It meets EPA standards for removal of cysts like Giardia and waterborne bacteria. The MyBottle includes a straw to use instead of a microfilter cartridge if the water source has been treated and is safe for drinking.

This bottle is PERFECT for hiking, camping or for your bug-out-bag. 

It is worth $49.95, and it can be yours completely free by completing these 3 EASY steps!

Here are the rules of the contest:

1.) You must be a follower of this blog, The Misplaced Alaskan.  Go here to become a follower.  Once you are a follower, MAKE SURE you are logged in, then...

2.)  You must post on this giveaway, stating your #1 favorite thing to do outdoors.

After The Misplaced Alaskan blog hits 100 followers, or on April 12, whichever comes first, a random drawing will be held.  A number will be drawn using Random.org.  Your number will be based on your response to the post.  First post is #1, second post is #2, etc.

So, get your family and friends to follow the blog and see if you might be the lucky winner of this awesome microfilter bottle and see how fast it takes us to get to 100!  If this proves to be successful, there will be many more contests coming up in the future!

  1. Well I guess as your wife I will be the first to post as everyone knows #1 is never picked during a contest drawing! Ha!

    As for my favorite outdoors activity, I'd have to say laying on the beach. But, since this blog is all about being "active", I'll say it is going swimming after getting too hot laying on the beach!

  2. Dude I am so jealous of your blog, wish I could come up with something to write about and have the time to do it. Anyway my #1 favorite outdoor activity is golf, followed by hiking, neither of which I have any time for these days. Ah well, someday I suppose.

  3. Barbeques with the family is my favorite outdoor activity. I used to like fishing when I lived in Alaska, but it's not the same in Virginia. ~Aunt Robin

  6. Thanks for your posts!

    Post #3, #4 I know who you both are, but make sure you become followers of the blog to get entered into the contest!

    Post #5, I think you followed the blog, but when you posted, you needed to select "Google Account" where it says "Reply as." If you'd like, just make another post telling me who you are so you can be entered into the contest!

    Thanks!

  7. My favorite outdoor activity is camping. Although that does encompass so many other outdoor activities (hiking, fishing, berry picking/foraging, etc.), so maybe that's a cheating answer. :)

  8. I'm not a big outdoors-person, but my favorite thing to do is walking the loop in Skagway. 5 miles of hills, some flat, and lots of beauty! -Birgitta

  9. I am such an big outdoor person any chance I get I'm out of the building. I love biking, hiking and nature watching. My all time favorite is floating on the lake with my fruity frozen adult beverage and my toe wrapped around a tow line, ha ha!
