I’m raffling off a Boreas Buttermilks 55L Lightweight Backpack, which has a retail value of $185.00. The winner of BACKPACKER Magazine’s 2012 Editor’s Choice Award, the Buttermilks 55 is a multi-day backpack that is at home in the woods as well as in town. Featuring a streamlined, functional design, the pack has an excellent suspension system capable of carrying surprisingly heavy loads (up to 35 pounds) without compromising on comfort, function, or convenience. For a full review and more pictures, see SectionHiker’s Review of the Boreas Buttermilks 55 Backpack from a few weeks ago.
To enter in this random raffle, you need to add a comment below with the name of the FEMALE hiker or backpacker that you most admire and a brief explanation of the reason why. The person you name can be a rock star hiker or someone you hike with locally that you think is the bee’s knees.
I really admire Heather “Anish” Anderson, who set the new un-supported speed record for the PCT last year, hiking over 2000 miles in 60 days. I admire her physical and mental strength to keep up that kind of pace, day in and day out.
I really admire Christine Benton, a hiking and backpacking leader with the New York- North Jersey Appalachian Mountain Club. A cancer survivor, she’s been leading trips in the Catskills and Adirondacks for as long as I can remember and has mentored dozens of hiking and backpacking trip leaders, including myself.
