Write a Pie Blog Post – Win a Rucksack
Here’s a chance for Pieblog readers to win this Gelert Nimbus 35 litre rucksack currently selling for around £42.
Its very noticeable that many outdoor blogger types are receiving tonnes of free kit from various outdoor gear retailers on the pretext of doing a review. I too, must admit to having received a couple of tents recently. Unfortunately, I broke one of them. But this is all old hat (note to retailers – most of my hats are pretty old as it happens…) but with the pieblog, I’ve decided that the readers should get the chance for some free kit too and they don’t have to write a review for it. Oh no they don’t. What they do have to do, though, is write a blog post, with some pictures. The subject can be anything related to walking about in the countryside – a trip report, a rant, or maybe a bit of useful info about something..er..useful. I have some independent judges who, as ex-grammar school-types, will mark you down for duff grammar unless its deliberate and maybe a bit ironic , or a pun or something. I should OF known will get you disqualified, though. This may seem to be elitist, but,really, we just have standards innit? (see- that kind of duff grammar is OK!) There’s no minimum length of blogpost but 1000 words should be the maximum number. This is in conjunction with outdoor clothing pals at Outdoors Look – so Click on www.outdoorlook.co.uk for an indoors look at the good value deals outdoors gear they’ve got going. Remember, we’re doing this for you. Good blogposts will be published on the pieblog. You have till 30 September to enter your entries, which should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org Better, less fuzzy pictures and more information about the rucksack is available here: http://www.outdoorlook.co.uk/gelert-nimbus-rucksack-35-litre-ruc732 If this competition is successful, we may well do a Christmas one. Get writing. Get a Gelert rucksack for nowt.

I used to have my pet dog Bruno with me (in the front page pic). he was Superdawg but he died. Now I have Lucky the pup. He's a bit like Bruno, only smaller and more suspicious.
