I’ve joined a group of 15 top travel bloggers to celebrate the season and bring our readers the chance to win some cool prizes, including hotel gift cards and overnight stays, digital cameras, travel guidebooks and DVDs, and luggage and camera bags.

Today the Caravan stops right here at EllenBarone.com where we’re giving away a nearly $300 worth of prizes. Two lucky readers will be randomly chosen from all eligible* entries to win a new day pack from First Ascent, the guide-built adventure line from Eddie Bauer. Or set off on your next adventure in a brand new travel outfit from ExOfficio including; 1 Shirt, 1 Pair of Pants and 1 Pair of ExOfficio Underwear.

Win a Little Tahoma Day Pack from First Ascent, the new adventure line from Eddie Bauer 

Post a comment on this blog and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Little Tahoma day pack – The perfect pack for trekking or town. Built for a day in the mountains, as a super-efficient carry-on bag, or an in-town work pack. The main compartment’s multi-use sleeve accommodates a laptop computer or a hydration system. It’s no wonder that when he guides on Kilimanjaro, Peter Whittaker says, “This pack is my travel partner—on the plane, all the way to the summit.”





Set off for your next adventue in the ultimate travel outfit from ExOfficio.

Keeping the meandering adventurer in mind, ExOfficio apparel is engineered to be worn again and again, pushed as far as you push yourself and still look great when you’re through. I’m a huge fan of all things ExOfficio. What about you? Post a comment on this blog and you could be setting off for your next adventure in the latest ExOffico travel outfit including; 1 Shirt, 1 Pair of Pants and 1 Pair of ExOfficio Underwear.
