IMG_0880We all love hiking. But if you’re like me, one of the things you like most about hiking is the post-hike ritual – whether it’s downing a cold Arnold Palmer after a hot summer trail, washing layers of dust and dirt off in the shower after a backpacking trip, or making a run for the nearest In-N-Out after a long day on the East Fork Trail.

Now, the team at Horny Toad and I want to know what your favorite post-hike refueling station is. Is it a tavern in the woods? A favorite local brewpub? A hidden diner full of greasy food that tastes AMAZING after a day in the wilderness? A place that serves up a pancake as big as your chest?

Here’s what you have to do – leave a comment here with your favorite place. Feel free to include your favorite menu items, a link to their web site, or a photo of your favorite meal or drink. Then, head to the Horny Toad site to sign up for their email list – they’ll keep your inbox light AND give you a code for 20% off your first order. Hang onto that, though, because I’ll be picking two winners – a lady and a gent. The female winner will snag herself a cozy Adjunct Hoodie while the gentleman will have to make room in his closet for a toasty Cloudcover Vest, both courtesy of the fine folks at Horny Toad.

All entries must be in no later than 11:59 PM on Sunday, December 2nd. Once I select the winners, I’ll confirm with Horny Toad to make sure you’re on the list and then we’ll get your warm winter layers out in the mail – hopefully in time to get a few good alpine hikes in before the holidays set in.

Then you can look like one of these attractive folks down here! Good luck!
