Well, I'm not getting to attend a hang I wanted to go to, I need something to cheer myself up so I'm starting a give away for a New Granite Gear Crown 2 38L. I had this up in the for sale section, just have too many packs and I'm never going to use this one. I don't need the cash and someone could probably use a lighter pack so let's do this. I don't really want to put a restriction on this one so anyone can enter but I'd prefer you really need the pack. Not just because you wanted to "try" a smaller pack. It's a great community here and I know we can do this on the honor system. As with my other give aways I will run a random number generator,your number will be based on your "I'm in" entry and the order of the posts. I'll post a closing thread at 10pm by my timestamp and run the random number generator, announcing the winner (unless there is only one entry therefor winning by sweet, sweet default) shortly after.

Good Luck!

Granite Gear Crown2 38L
Reg Torso (18" - 21" torso)
Adjustable "one size fits all" hip belt.

We've got a charity auction coming up for a group that packs weekly food bags for kids to get them through the "68 Hours of Hunger" each weekend where the ones who rely on the school meal programs might otherwise not have anything to eat.

Not in, but good on you for your generosity. In all the posts of yours I've read, you've always come across as a stand-up guy and this is just another example. We should all take your example and look for more ways to pay it forward.

EDIT: My wife likes what I'm doing so she is offering up her Granite Gear Vapor Ki as a runner up give away. It is about 6 years old but you'd never tell, we take immaculate care of our gear. She went with the slightly heavier Crown 2 for next season as she's attracted to the idea of a lid. If you entered for a wife, daughter or if I can tell you're female in your post you're automatically in for the Vapor Ki. I'll run that number after the Crown 2 entry and then notify that winner. If it's not a pack your interested in and pass I'll run that number again and move on down the line accordingly. Don't worry, the crown2 is a "Unisex" pack I believe so if you've already entered your wife or daughter (or yourself) you're still first in on the crown2. For posts after this if you're only interested in the Vapor Ki (It is a much more minimalist pack) please mention it and I won't include you in the crown drawing. Though I think if you pull the internal plastic frame sheet and lid off the crown2 it comes close in weight to the Vapor Ki. There are a couple of posts here with forum names that aren't really gender specific so if you feel I might overlook you and are interested please give me a PM or post here. You get what I'm saying. Thanks all!
