Hello all,

First,of all Bobo Uzala I like your little quote...

Second , I hope I am posting this in the correct place...

Final, as being and newbie in backpacking and hiking I believe that this headlamp will come in handy for the reason I do not have any gear at this that. I watched the video of Ted and I liked the features this headlamp has....

Thanks,

Kowboy

This looks like a nice headlamp. And coming from Black Diamond you know its got to be a superior product. I sure could use the prize to put in my mobile bug out bag and to use for any emergencies I might have on the road.

Kowboy,

I'm glad you liked the video. I thought it was necessary since this is the first headlamp I've found with no buttons.

I believe just writing in the forum counts, but either way, we're glad you're here and enjoying the magazine.

I guess I'm just clueless, but today I just got around to realizing that it was you in the BD headlamp demo! Nice job and nice looking headlamp. You did a good job with the demo, do you work for REI, Back Country Edge, or some other outfitter? Black Diamond and the winner of the drawing both owe you a big thank you!

Hi Ted,

I think that is so kool that you do this for Trailgroove. as a photographer I cannot wait to get set up for my trail adventures however, I know I need to pace myself. Even though I am disabled I went to school and received a associates in photography and if everything goes well I will return to school to get my bachelors in photographer next year....

Aaron/TrailGroove

The prizes from last months TrailGroove giveaway arrived today!

I will wear the TrailGroove t-shirt on the trail soon. We are going to St. Louis this weekend, but next weekend I am free and itching to get back on trail.

The REI gift card will be put to good use. I had to buy a couple of REI nalgene water bottles just a few weeks ago, so I'll have to wait a bit and see what I need. I'm glad TG chose REI for the gift card, as I've purchased from them for years and feel they are about the best around.

Lastly the Black Diamond Ion Headlamp is really nice. It does appear as if I'll have to share it with my wife as she really likes it!

Thanks again! Once again, Happy Trails to all the TrailGroove members!
