Are you a notable nomad? Know an epic explorer?  We want to know all about the legendary folks lurking in your area. We'll fire up the bards to sing your glorious praises.

Local Legends are those fabled few who live a unique and adventurous lifestyle. They're the people that stories are made of - a half step and a near death experience from tall tale. Ultimately, they're highly admired in the outdoor community and more than likely your buddies!

Nominate yourself and/or your friends and tell us why they should be considered one of the Gociety Local Legends of 2016. Cue up your grandmother, the competition will be fierce. Winners will be announced on February 22, 2016.

1. Nominate a friend. They will thank you later. Have more legendary friends? Enter them all.

2. Nominate yourself. It's ok, we won't tell.

3. Share! Nominations aren't fun without a little social love. Get your friends in on the action, too!

We'll be selecting 1 lucky guy OR gal from each city as winners:

Austin, TX
Denver, CO
Grand Rapids, MI
Portland, OR
San Francisco, CA
Seattle, WA
