Gear Junkie Treasure Hunt
On July 11, GearJunkie.com will host a one-day-only Treasure Hunt event in a wilderness park near Roanoke, Virginia. More than $40,000 in outdoor gear–from backpacks to kayaks–will be given away to an estimated 300 participants. The event will essentially be an adventure, or off-trail orienteering, race. Flags will be hidden in the wilderness, and participants will earn points for each flag found. At the end, they can cash in at “gear central” to claim various outdoor gear prizes.
