Outdoors Freebies


Free Tenacious Tape

Free Tenacious Tape

Today’s free Tenacious Tape sample is for those adventurous Hiffers who love to hike and camp. I’m told those are activities one does “outside,” whatever that means.

Free National Parks Admission

Free National Parks Admission

The next free National Park admission weekend starts starts this Saturday. So get out there, breathe in some fresh air, and suffer a little frostbite while you’re at it! Meanwhile I’ll be nice and snug in my apartment.

Free Tire Gauge from Copenhagen

Free Tire Gauge

Copenhagen is giving away a free tire gauge (look for the image above on the website), which means I need to hunt for a free tire now. And heck, where do you even put a tire in a NYC apartment? On the wall? Lie it on the ground, slap a board over it, and call it my new coffee table? No, no, you’re right, I should probably hang it from the ceiling as a tire swing. Good call.

Free Kebroak Fire Starter

Free Kebroak Fire Starter

Ha. If there’s one thing I’ll never need, it’s this free Kebroak fire starter. I discovered long ago that my super power is I can light anything on fire!

Free National Parks Admission

Free National Parks Admission

If you live near the same latitude as me, you probably have zero interest in visiting a National Park for free over President’s Day weekend (February 15-17). However maybe you live someplace warm! If so, any chance you have a guest room? I’m great around kids, very outgoing, and am this close to being housebroken!

Free Marlboro 3-in-1 Tool

Free Compass and Flashlight

EDIT: This freebie has been recalled. If you received it, please stop using it immediately.

Marlboro is offering a free 3-in-1 tool that contains a flashlight, compass, and match holder. Now when I get lost in the woods, I can remain lost since I don’t know how to use a compass, light the trees on fire to signal any rescue planes which probably won’t be looking for me, then tell myself scary ghost stories before starving to death. Thanks Marlboro!

If you’re having trouble finding the offer, log-in with the link above then come back and click the link again. It should then take you straight to the signup form.

Free Backyard Birds Poster

Free Backyard Birds Poster

Cornell University must be the place to study birds because this is the second year in a row they’ve released a free backyard bird poster. No word yet if they have a special edition poster for NYC residents. It could have a pigeon in one corner and a different color pigeon in the other!

Wait, no, they’re both the same color.

Free Burt’s Bees Wildflower Seeds

Free Burt's Bees Wildflower Seeds

I don’t know what I’m supposed to actually do with them, but Burt’s Bees is offering free wildflower seeds. Am I supposed to rub them on my lip in place of their chapstick?

Edit: Might be easier to copy pasta this link instead: http://www.startsampling.com/sm/burtsbees102780/captureAddress.iphtml

Free Dog Leash and Pedometer

Free Dog Leash Pedometer

Jenny Craig and Purina have teamed up to give away “Power of Two” packs, which include a free dog leash and pedometer. The only problem I see with this is that I now have to start exercising. Think it’ll work if I put the pedometer on my dog and let him run around the house for a bit?

Free 3M Carabiner

Free 3M Carabiner

My gut tells me this will die lightning quick, so watch a short video, fill out the form, and get a free carabiner from 3M.
