Icebreaker contest: "How was your first time?"

Makers of some pretty amazing merino wool apparel for active souls of all types, Icebreaker makes gear that keeps us warm and dry.  Some of my most loved, and most lived in, tops come from the Icebreaker GT collection.  These guys were the first brand to convince me that it was OK to wear wool directly against the skin.  Before Icebreaker, no matter how pricey the piece, I needed a layer between me and the wool.  I am now completely addicted to the stuff and I blame them completely.

The crew at Icebreaker is holding a contest and this one I thought was worth sharing.  How does a free trip to New Zealand sound?  Free plane tickets and $3000 in cash should just about cover it...


Here's the official announcement (so I don't screw it up)...
First times can be epic, amazing, scary, funny. They can include the first time hiking, snowboarding, or mountain biking - doing something that connects with nature. First times can also be wearing Icebreaker merino wool and how it makes them feels.
The first time Icebreaker founder Jeremy Moon pulled on a shirt made of light, super-breathable merino wool it was life changing. “It felt beautiful next to my skin. I went biking in it, running in it. I even slept in it. It became part of my life. That was the start of this amazing relationship for me,” said Jeremy Moon, founder and CEO of Icebreaker. “We invite you to tell us about your first time. The first time you wore Icebreaker or the first time you experienced a life-changing event.”
Outdoor enthusiasts can share a photo of their favorite first-time experience or outdoor adventure with a clever caption for a chance to win a trip for two to New Zealand, courtesy of Icebreaker and Air New Zealand. Entries submitted at will be accepted until November 22, 2013. Icebreaker fans will be invited to vote on a selection of favorite submitted photos from November 25 to December 3, 2013. The grand prize winner will be selected by Icebreaker on December 4, 2013, from the entries with the most votes.
The winner will receive two roundtrip tickets from San Francisco, Los Angeles or Vancouver to Auckland, New Zealand on Air New Zealand, plus $3000 USD in cash. Travel must occur between May and November 2014, and must be ticketed by February 15, 2014. Only persons who are at least 18 years of age can enter to win. The contest is open to residents of Canada and the United States.

Well, Good Luck...

OK, honestly that was kind of half-hearted, I'd love to win this one....
