Thanks for sharing this exciting tale with us, Rob.  Thank you to everyone who posted comments.

I enjoyed reading each and every one of the stories and viewing the photos.  Selecting a winner was harder than I had anticipated.  Each of the stories were unique, informative and entertaining.  If I had a way to give a prize to each of you, I would.

  1. This is so cool! Thank you for allowing me to enter the contest. I am kind of surprised that I won since all the stories were great. I have some other stories floating around in my head somewhere, and y'all might even like some of them. I'll post 'em as I write 'em, and I hope the others will as well.

    Thanks again!

    Tight lines and good hunting!

  2. Just a quick contest update: I recieved my Pack in the mail the other day, and I have to say I was not satisfied with it. Satisfied is not the word; I was impressed! It's an excellent pack, spacious and sturdy, and very comfortable to wear. I'm very happy with your contest, and also happy with the people at CSN Stores for their prompt shipping of such a quality product!
    Thank you again for runing this contest!

  3. Rob,
