Each month we give away a free copy of “AVALANCHE AND GORILLA JIM, APPALACHIAN TRAIL ADVENTURES AND OTHER TALES” to the person who submits the best humorous story about hiking or backpacking.

Some of the funniest stories will appear on this website–click on the Backpackers Blog.

So if you have a comic tale about a hiking or backpacking adventure of yours, just let us know in the box below. (We respect your privacy and will never sell your information to third parties. Read the “What’s Funny About Hiking Contest Rules” here.)

Submit your humorous story about hiking or backpacking (up to 300 words).
