When we founded Huckberry in our apartments almost three years ago, we never imagined the incredible community it would spawn.
And while we've always endeavored to inspire our readers to lead more active and adventurous lives, we've always believed that a Jedi draws its strength from the Force. You guys are Huckberry. We're just the stewards.
We're also bootstrapped, and 100% funded by our customers. So it seemed only right that we pay the inspiration forward by using some of our funds to help make your next adventure a reality. Herewith…
Here's how it works:
1. [Contest Closed]. Tell us about one adventure that you've always wanted to go on. Want to ride the Great Divide? Kayak Alaska's fjords? We want to help you do it. Please keep your entry to 150 words or less, and obviously, the more thoughtful the entry, the better.
3. If you win, you'll receive $1,000 cash towards the adventure, and a bunch of rad gear from our buds at Topo Designs, Poler, Nemo, Peak Design, and Goal Zero. How far can you go on $1,000? Well, Alastair once walked across India on that budget!
4. We'll feature the winners' adventures on our Journal to keep the inspirational karma loop going.

That time four friends took fourteen horses over 3,000 miles down the divide.
That time Chris went to Russia—to dodge bears and find good surf.
That time our designer Jimmy spent 110 days traveling around the world and proposed to his fiancé.
That time three friends rode their motorcycles more than 10,000 around the USA.
Or maybe you're canoeing up to Manitoba, riding a dirt bike to Patagonia (and back), camping every weekend of the summer, or rafting down the Mississippi. Whatever your adventure is, we want to hear about it—and help fund it.
