Darn Tough Vermont sock giveaway!

Another generous sponsor, Darn Tough Vermont, has offered up a couple of pairs of their 3/4 Crew Mesh Run/Bike socks. For those not familiar, these socks are made in Vermont, and carry a lifetime, no questions asked guarantee. Yes, they're serious. I've tested several pairs, and 18 months later, they are still like new. Being made from fine Merino wool, they even passed the six day, no-wash stink test. (Do not try that with cotton socks!)

We'll be giving away two pairs - men's in the team Darn Tough Vermont colors, ladies in jalapeno. Here's the official rules:

Between now and noon Central time Friday, July 27th, you'll need to go to the Darn Tough Vermont Facebook page, and "Like" them, then post in this thread that you've liked them. We'll pick a winner at random later that day. In order to preserve your anonymity, only the winner will need to share their real name (via PM), so we can verify that they have followed the rules. It's that simple. If you have a Facebook account, you can enter.

I liked them myself. Could allways use a good pair of socks to keep my feet warm and dry while cycling during the winter months in New England.
