You know those contests where you guess the number of jelly beans (or some other sugary candy) and the closest person wins a prize?
47parks.com is doing the miles hiked version of this.
Here’s how it works:
- Leave a comment with your estimate of how many miles I have hiked in national parks since the beginning of my trip (state parks and walking in downtown Memphis doesn’t count)
- Next Friday, September 30, I will announce the winner
- Your prize? Either a big bag of jelly beans or any picture from my blog sent to you as a 8.5 X 11 print
Keep in mind that some parks, like Dry Tortugas, contain very little “hikeable” land.
Also, if you don’t see your guess posted right away as a comment, don’t panic, I have to approve all comments before they become official.
Good luck, have fun!
