$50 Gander Mountain Gift Card


For some folks winter is a time to snuggle by the fire with a good book. For others it's the ultimate outdoor season where snow sports come to life. Or perhaps the brave venture out camping. In the last few months we've made our first attempts at new outdoor activities including archery in Washington and skiing in Wyoming.

We enjoy getting into the great outdoors from time to time, and now Gander Mountain are helping to make that easier for 1 lucky winner with a $50 gift card.




With Christmas coming up, Gander Mountain have introduced a new "Best Price Plus" policy to guarantee in-store shoppers the best price this holiday season. And if you find a better deal, they'll discount 10% of the difference. That should make holiday shopping a little easier, especially if you missed the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Check their website for details.

On top of that Gander Mountain are running Holiday Deals across the month of December which will include apparel, camping, boating, and more in their "Great Deals" promotion. Even financing and gift cards will be included.

Where do you start? Gander Mountain have dozens of stores across the US - click here to find your nearest one and just pop in your zip code. Or you can shop securely on their website.


After our first archery tournament recently in Spokane, Washington, I can think of a few friends who would enjoy a shiny new bow... and a few replacement arrows (since our aim wasn't spectacular) ;-)

This competition is now closed

Thank you to everyone who entered!

Our first taste of "glamping" in Luxembourg.

If I win, I am definitely gifting this gift card to my sister who is a big time adventure freak. I am the type who likes to snuggle in a cozy blanket with a steaming cup of coffee and enjoy a good book.
