It’s not every day that you get a chance to win a full set of Cooper STT Pro tires, and today we’re unveiling not one, but five opportunities to do just that. No we’re not pulling your leg for April fools day. The Cooper Discover Writing Contest is officially live on Expedition Portal, and for the next five months participants will have the chance to walk away with a brand new set of tires, or a grand prize of two Overland Experience passes to the Overland Expo East 2016, a $2,500 prepaid gift card for travel expenses, and a certificate good for one set of five Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires. So what’s the catch? Well, you’ve got to get out there and have an adventure! Whether it is exploring the woods behind your house, or trekking across a remote section of the Sahara, we want you to share your story of discovery.
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Chris didn’t receive a real taste of the outdoors until moving to Prescott, Arizona, in 2009. While working on his business degree, he learned to fly and spent his weekends exploring the Arizona desert and high country. It was there that he fell in love with backcountry travel and four-wheel drive vehicles, eventually leading him to Overland Journal and Expedition Portal. After several years of honing his skills in writing, photography, and off-road driving, Chris now works for the company full time as Expedition Portal's Senior Editor while living full-time on the road.
