Heading east to Gore-Tex
28 Oct, 2009
In early September I received an invite from Gore Tex to attend their Experience More Blogger Summit that they would be hosting in late October and while it meant traveling two weeks in a row it also meant an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. The time has come and I am heading east for a short 48 hour visit to Philadelphia, Newark and Elkton to check out what Gore Tex is about. Our itinerary looks like a lot of fun and includes a tour of the Gore Testing Facilities with the Rain Room and Comfort Chamber plus an evening in Philadelphia for dinner among other activities. I’m especially looking forward to meeting the other bloggers attending the event.
This is the first trip that won’t cost me a dime: flight, lodging, food, everything is paid for and it gives me the chance to check out a company that many of us choose to be in our outerwear systems. When I do write about the experience I’ll make sure to disclose that information but I’m also attending on behalf of Shayboarder and looking forward to writing about the experience. Because it is such a short trip and no free time, I wasn’t able to plan a snowboard giveaway for this trip but I will be heading back east later this winter.
So here’s your chance, if you have any questions you’d like to know the answers to in regards to Gore-Tex, write down a comment and I’ll make sure to find out the answer for you!
