Hi Friends,

It’s Mother’s Day weekend. My Mom is in town and we went hiking yesterday with my brother and sister-in-law. My Mom is a classy lady, she hikes in pearls. I’m not sure how she ended up raising a dirtbag like me but she’s the best.

I’m lucky to have an amazing Mom and two amazing Mothers-in-Law.

But I realize that isn’t the case for everyone so I have a different take on Mother’s Day.

For me, Mother’s Day weekend is a weekend where we celebrate not just the women who raised us, but ALL women who have loved us, mentored us, coached us, befriended us, believed in us, nurtured us, taught us, and been kind to us.

Mother or not all women should be celebrated this weekend.

That’s why we’ve decided to giveaway a pair of Oboz boots, the Bridger‘s to be exact. You can read a review we wrote about them right here.  We can vouch for these boots awesomeness!

Here’s how to enter. This giveaway will end on Sunday, May 14th at midnight (MDT) and the winner will be announced on our Facebook page early next week. May the odds be ever in your favor.

OBOZ Bridger Hiking Boot Giveaway

Happy Mother’s Day!


p.s. We have just 48 hours left to register for the Outdoor Mom Academy. This is our 6-week online class for parents and caregivers who are looking to learn new skills and develop confidence in adventuring with children of all ages. Registration closes Sunday night at midnight (MDT) and class begins Monday morning.

Classes consist of a video for the topic of the week with a PDF workbook, audio files, and so much great information from my friends Susan & Amelia, oh and me too.

Here’s what a few women who have signed up for the class are already saying:

“I’m taking the class to refine my skills, learn from other inspiring outdoor moms, and to get some practical advice on the most important aspects of adventuring in the outdoors with kids.  I’m particularly excited about the camping lesson, as our family is looking to make our camping trips easier and more organized.  As my children grow, and we take on “more adventurous” activities, I also think the risk management lesson will be especially relevant.” – Kate

“Sound like fun? I hope so! This is something I should have taken years ago…especially the course on family first-aid.” –Kristen

“I can use all the help I can get when it comes to planning, preparing, choosing gear, packing, assessing risk, and raising a kid to love the outdoors. I also happen to LOVE learning! It was one of the big reasons that I started the blog – to continue learning and to share what I learn while on a year-long maternity leave. I am passionate about the outdoors, about raising kids wild, and about helping others enjoy the outdoors with their families. The Outdoor Mom Academy sounds like a great way to do all of the above and more!” –Monica

Don’t forget to head here and register by Sunday at midnight (MDT). See ya in class my friends!

  1. It’s easy to get lost in the internet world, but I feel like your website found me. I’m interested in your hiking class with children and feel like I’ve ‘found my peeps’, thank you.

  2. Up would love a pair of these awesome hiking boots. I hike all the time and could really use some great boots.

  3. oooh! OBOZ!
    I Agree with you, Rebecca. I have many women who are not my mother, or mothers at all, that have enriched my life.
    Happy Mother’s Day to all!

  4. These amazing boots would be great to have. I’d love them. Mine fit too loosely around the top and gravel and dirt get inside…yikes! Thanks for a great giveaway! Happy Mother’s day to all…I will miss spending it with mine however, I know she still watches over me~!

  5. I would love to try these. I have a pair of Kudo boots right now and I look them but they are heavy.

    • I mean Khombu. My phone auto corrected. I love reading the reviews on equipment. It really has helped me to choose the equipment I use

  6. Thanks for helping moms and women hike!!!! The information in the blog is real, mainly uplifting but more importantly real… I always enjoy ready what the blog shares 🙂 I have a step mom and g-ma that have been helping encourage me to hike for years now to help stay ahead of back pain and OCD. In a year I will be going to Nepal. Hiking keeps me sane but the women who have helped me have allowed me the confidence to help many others too!!! I am thankful for the positive females in my life!!!!!!!!!

  7. How timely! As I’m typing this I’m preparing for a hiking and camping weekend with my granddaughter. Sharing our love of the outdoors with the next generation is more and more important as we become increasingly ingrained in technology. I am so happy to be a part of this community!

  8. These boots sound amazing! I don’t think you can go wrong with a boot described as “super comfy on my toes!” I have never worn a taller boot style hiking shoe, so would love to try it out!

  9. So excited to find this site. I am ready to put it to good use and get out there with my kids! Oboz rock!

  10. I agree, Mother’s Day is not just to celebrate the traditional role of a mother. I have had several women in my life that have served as “Mother’s” by being amazing role models in my life.

    • Favorite place to hike has been Zion National Park, but right now we hike a lot around the Twin Cities metro area in Minnesota.

  11. You have inspired me so much since I discovered your blog and social media a year ago. I love hiking and I love feeling supported in the hiking community through your posts!

  12. I LOVE the post you linked back to on a different take on Mother’s day!! I’ve been struggling with the idea that not all moms want to celebrate Mother’s Day the same way and your post made me feel better =) (Also those boots are awesome and I only have low light hikers, so winning them would be super cool!)

  13. I haven’t tried Oboz boots before. Love the outdoor community you help bring together! Can’t wait to start the Moms Outdoor Academy!

  14. Cheers to all of the women who have made a difference in someone else’s life! The boot review is great; I’ve had a hard time trying to find boots that work for my feet. Thought about switching to trail runners but would love to try these. Happy FriYAY 🙂

  15. I really need good quality hiking boots.My budget doesn’t allow me to splurge on the best. I would be very appreciative of them.

  16. Love the HLAW website and FB page!

    These boots sound like they are exactly what I’m looking for. If I’m the lucky winner I promise to put them to great use!

  17. A new pair if boots! Awesome…hear they are a great pair to try. Enjoy reading your reviews. Thanks for all you do.

  18. I am so excited to start “school” on Monday. I saw it advertised on your Facebook and my hubs signed me up right away!

  19. Oops! Didn’t see the question at first but my favorite place to hike so far is Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia.

  20. Every woman needs a great pair of hiking boots as a gift to her feet for those endless beautiful hiking adventures!

  21. It would be so awesome to win these boots. Thanks for this opportunity 🙂 (and thanks to Annie too 😉 )

    You know what’s awesome too? How you’ve brought all these women together.


  22. My partner bought a pair of Oboz and swears by them. So if I won, these would be going with me on the trail. Will have to come up with other gifts for the lovely women in my life!

  23. I love hiking in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. So many waterfalls, lots of beautiful shorelines and very secluded!

  24. Stumbled across this give-away just after informing my family that all I want for Mother’s Day is a day of hiking!

  25. I’d love to try oboz boots! I’ve heard gear things about them and if you recommend them, they must be good!

  26. I would LOVE some new boots! I have worn my last pair out, and I look forward to hiking with my children many, many more miles.

  27. Oboz would be amazing! We are moving to rattle snack country soon and will need a great pair of boots. Fingers crossed!

  28. What a generous offer and a generous meaning to mother’s day you have!
    My daughter is in California, I am in Utah but we walk ‘together’ daily (just came in from 4.5 miles together). Headphones and chatting periodically is our go to mother daughter walk technique.

  29. I work part time in an office with no window, so some of my favorite hikes are getting out during lunch to walk to a nearby trail into the woods. It’s so nice to get some fresh air and see/hear nature after working inside.

  30. To be honest, these are the hiking boots I already have and I love them and they will soon see their end of life, so one way or another I’ll likely be getting another pair!

  31. I will be leading two all women backpacking camp outs this summer. A new pair of boots is on my list of needs- this would be an awesome win.

  32. Can’t express enough how grateful I am fo a Mom who was fabulous out doors. It wasn’t even her “thing” but she was great at getting us out there and inspired by this beautiful world.

    And, those boots will come in handy as I follow my elder son’s desire for longer, more exacting outdoor adventures. Hope I win! Either way, I am happy.

  33. Ooooh! New boots! My husband just got a pair of Oboz for Christmas and loves them. Now I want a pair! Could definitely use a new pair as my current pair have seen better days.

  34. What a great giveaway! Hiking is my sanctuary, my happy place. It’s more than my physical cardio, it’s a walking meditation that clears out the “monkey mind” and alleviates stress. Due to some health issues, good, supportive shoes are an absolute necessity to me. I would be SOOOOO TICKLED and honored to have a pair of these. Thanks for the opportunity.

  35. I’ll be celebrating Mothers Day by hiking with my mother and son! New books would be fabulous as I host hikes at least once a week for lots of mamas!

  36. Not sure if your competition is for Canadian’s, but I’d love to win a pair of boots for Sandi, one of the wisest and most patient moms I know!

  37. Most of our hikes are in Brown Coubnty State Park and Hoosier National Forest. These boots look great!

  38. One of the things I love about HLAW is its recognition of the importance of a community of women who encourage and inspire each other. If that ain’t mothering, I don’t know what is.

  39. Happy Mothers day! I am grateful for my mom and the opportunity to be a mom myself. I also appreciate all the amazing women out there who have taken the time to help me when they didn’t need to. The horse world has been great for that, so many supportive people who have let me tag along for trail riding and horse camping.

  40. What beautiful boots! Thank you for all of the information you share with all of us! I’m hiking my way through Northern Virginia!

  41. My favorite local place to hike is Difficult Run trail to the Potomac River. If I have time to camp, Shenandoah National Park is the place to hike!

  42. This is awesome, thank you! I have yet to find a pair of hiking boots that have been love, but I’ve never tried Oboz before!

  43. Thank you for th we Blog Posts you do! I’m thrilled I found your blog Earlier this year! Keep up the inspiring work! ❤

  44. We have the Metropark system here in Cleveland. I love going to one reservation to the other and hiking. Always finding new paths on each run.

  45. Favorite place to hike in Wisconsin…I have so many favorites…Scuppernong Springs, White River County Park, depends on the season 🙂

  46. Rebecca, many thanks for all you do and for bringing us like-minded women together in such a positive way – thank you Oboz for the giveaway and do my friend, Annie, who is behind the scenes on this one, too!
