How many hours this week were you inside? How many hours were you sitting in a chair at a desk? How many times did you look at a computer, TV, phone or some other screen? How many bags of chips, ice cream cones, and candy bars did you eat?
Take the Transit & Trails Challenge this weekend and get outside! Then we can ask… how many miles did you walk? How many vistas did you see? How many trees did you find shade or shelter under? How many birds did you hear? How many times did you laugh? How many times were your surprised?
Use Transit & Trails to get moving and get outside. Afterwards, tell us a story about your time out in nature. Like this one:
And enter to win!
Two people will be randomly selected to win $100 gift cards from REI. That’s right! To win, you must:

- Take a bus, ferry, train, or some other form of public transportation to get outside.
- Write a story on the Transit & Trails website (on the page of the trip or trailhead or campground you went to)
- Have gone on this trip yourself at some point. It doesn’t necessarily have to be this weekend.
Contest closes at 9am on Tuesday, September 18. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 19.
Thanks to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission for giving us goodies to give to you like the REI gift cards. There are more. Stay tuned. Questions can be sent to annie at openspacecouncil dot org.
