Hi Pentaxian friends.

Golden, Colo. (April 6, 2011)…PENTAX Imaging Company announced today it joined the team of popular outdoor gear manufacturers sponsoring the 11th annual Backpacker Magazine Get Out More Tour—an interactive mobile media and education tour—designed to inspire readers and encourage participation in active outdoor pursuits.

Backpacker’s Get Out More Road Team, starring Sheri and Randy Propster, will visit specialty outdoor retailers and festivals in almost 70 cities in 30 states to promote the active outdoor lifestyle and teach practical outdoor skills.

The tour kicks off Thursday, April 7 at the Raleigh, North Carolina REI store at 7:00pm. Full details and the complete tour schedule are available here:

At each retail stop, the Get Out More Team will host a 75-minute seminar on trip planning, choosing the right outdoor gear and apparel, safety in the outdoors and much more. The Propster’s passion and extensive outdoor expertise help educate retail customers about the skills, stewardship and equipment to get out more and enjoy outdoor adventure.

"We know that consumers who hold a PENTAX are more likely to purchase one," said Ned Bunnell, president, PENTAX Imaging Company. "The GET OUT MORE tour is ideal for us to introduce our adventureproof Optio WG-1 cameras, weather resistant K-5 digital SLR and Papilio binoculars to consumers in 70 outdoor retailers in 30 states from now until December.”

Get Out More audiences will have access to expert information and opportunities to win great outdoor gear.
