Newsflash: Outdoor sports are kind of expensive... Sometimes insanely expensive. But not to worry, I found a solution: GearCommons.com. See below for their ADVENTURE TRAVEL GIVEAWAY!
If you've bought your gear outright in the past to go hiking, cycling, etc., count yourself lucky. But if you have limited space, funds, or knowledge, there's an app, or rather a website, for
that. It's called GearCommons and it's changing the face of who can
experience the outdoors, one sharing micro-economy at a time. #ShareTheAdventure
Gear owners (and hoarders) rejoice! It's time to make money from your gear habit. And patrons of GearCommons who are looking to rent equipment just sign up for free, search for what they're
looking for nearby, and rent it. Reasonable prices? Absolutely—finally! Security deposits to cover damages? Sure, then everyone's protected. Now, the peer-to-peer economies that've sprung up with
the rise of AirBnB and the like make outdoor sports actually accessible. If you can afford gas to the drive to the YMCA pool, you can afford stuff on GearCommons.com.
PLUS: GearCommons has an amazing adventure travel giveaway: They are raising money on IndieGoGo to send one
crazy-lucky adventurer and one of their friends on a free epic trip—using only gear they've rented from GearCommons users! Their trip will be filmed by award-winning documentary
filmmakers. So hop to it! Watch the campaign on IndieGoGo and sign up on their Facebook page. Or just click #ShareTheAdventure picture link below! It's a fantastic idea, and I know I've signed up already...
