Enter the Double Hoboroll Giveaway!
Update: The contest is over! Congratulations to Emily W from Asheville, North Carolina, and Laura R from Orlando, Florida!
What’s better than finding a way to save precious pack space and get slightly more organized on the road? Doing so for free!
Chez from Gobi Gear was kind enough to send me not just one but two of their cool Hoborolls to give away to readers this February. I carried my Hoboroll through the Indian Himalayas, Rajasthan’s desert, Sri Lanka, and Southeast Asia last year and it’s now a permanent addition to my kit.
These simple-yet-brilliant rolls let you organize your clothes, keep them clean, and then compress everything down to save space. The end product is a nice little wardrobe ball with all of your stretched-and-stained Bangkok T-shirts in one place!
Don’t worry, this isn’t a corporate contest. The Hoboroll was created by a husband-wife team who travels extensively and even walked the Annapurna circuit in Nepal. They know what people need in the field.

How to Win
You’ve got two chances to win. Deadline: February 28th, 2013.
1) Like my Vagabonding Travel Facebook Page. Not only do you get a chance to win a Hoboroll, lots of cool other things will creep into your eyeballs.
2) If you’re in rehab to kick the Facebook addiction, you can still enter by subscribing to email updates here on this blog. The link is in the top right corner. No SPAM. No grow-your-[ahem] emails. Just good vagabonding stuff. If you don’t like what you see, you can unsubscribe after the contest and I promise that I won’t cry.
Two Winners Will Be Chosen
Just as with my other contests, your fate rests in the hands of my 10-year-old niece. She’ll pick a random number on March 1st, I’ll count down names on Facebook and Feedburner, and the name that corresponds to her number will win.
I’ll cover shipping to winners in the U.S. For my international friends, I’ll split the shipping with you. Hoborolls only weigh 3.5 ounces (100 grams) so I don’t think that it will cost much.
I’ll announce the winner here on March 1st. Good luck!
