Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.

Last week, I ran a short feature on my new favorite travel accessory, Gobi Gear’s Hoboroll. And while I realize I’m prone to hyperbole, I also feel pretty confident that this piece of equipment will be one of my gear “musts” for years…nay, centuries to come.

And in true Sparkpunk fashion, I also want to share my extra Hoboroll with one lucky winner. I appended last week's feature with a list of additional uses for the Hoboroll, but I want to hear your ideas…


What’s the most imaginitive use for a Hoboroll you can come up with? Respond in the comment section below with your most (a) utilitarian or (b) obscure idea(s).


  • Respond to the above prompt in the comments section below (you may enter more than once)
  • Follow @zakerving on Twitter and/or like Sparkpunk on Facebook
  • Not required, but damn helpful to me!: Tweet and/or post the contest link to your followers


  • One Gobi Gear Hoboroll, so you can cram your next big adventure into a little tiny stuff sack.


The giveaway is open to U.S. & Canada residents only. This giveaway ends Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 5:00pm Pacific Time. One winner will be selected based on their answer to the prompt and announced on Monday, April 30, 2012 at 7:00am Pacific Time.
