Wolverine 1,000 Mile Boots Giveaway

After publishing Tony’s post about shoes and boots a couple of weeks ago, which mentioned Wolverine’s 1,000 Mile Boots, the good folks at Wolverine contacted us about running another giveaway with them. I was dee-lighed, as the last giveaway we did for the boots was quite popular. But also because I myself am a proud owner of Wolverine’s 1,000 Mile Boots and an unabashed fan of them.

The design of the boots is based off the design of the original 1,000 Mile Boots that were introduced back in 1914. This was a time when a man needed a pair of boots that could walk miles of unpaved roads and yet still look good with a set of handsome duds.

The 1,000 Mile Boot Collection comes in three styles: the Bradford, the Original, and the Addison.

The boots are made in the USA with top quality leather in a process that involves some of the same construction methods used to make the boots nearly a century ago. They’re built to last a very, very long time and only get better with age.

For me personally, the best part about the boots is how incredibly versatile they are. I’ve worn them with everything from a t-shirt and jeans to slacks, a tweed sports coat, and a tie. And everything in-between. They can go from walking and working to an upscale event. Practical and handsome: now that’s manly.

The Prize:

We’re giving away two, count em, two pairs of Wolverine’s 1,000 Mile Boots.

To enter, leave a comment sharing who you’d like to walk 1,000 miles with. The person can be real or fictional, dead or alive, someone you know or a famous person.

Deadline to enter is Monday, March 21 at 9PM CST. We’ll then randomly select two lucky winners. Enter today!

Edit: The contest is over and comments are closed. We’ll be announcing the winners on The AoM Trunk shortly.

I’d walk 1000 miles with Stephen Hawking, that way every time he’d make me feel stupid, I’d point out that I can at least walk with my own legs :P

3802 Stuart March 20, 2011 at 2:34 am

I would walk 1000 miles with my father and grandfather. They are both great men of integrity who have lots of wisdom to share.

3803 Jonathan Mou March 20, 2011 at 2:35 am

I’d totally take a walk with Jesus. Kind of a road to Emmaus sort of thing.

3804 Andrew Wallace March 20, 2011 at 2:46 am

I’d walk 1000 miles and more with Antoine de St. Exupery. Mysteriously lost at sea while piloting an aircraft for France in WW2 across the Mediterranean Sea, he wrote several books that have inspired a sense of adventure and wonder through out my life. As a child I read “The Little Prince” and marveled at the depths of the universe and felt not alone. As an adult I read “Wind, Sand and Stars” and am inspired by the passion of a true gentleman adventurer. He was a remarkable pilot, poet and man.

Why, Kipling, of course:

If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!

3806 Larry March 20, 2011 at 2:54 am

I would walk 1,000 miles with you

3807 Phillip Martin March 20, 2011 at 3:03 am

I’d like to walk those 1000 miles with Jonathan Edwards, the puritan theologian who served as a missionary to the native peoples of North America, played a intricate role in the First Great Awakening, and is recognized as the original American theologian. The wisdom that I would be able to take in from just being able to walk beside him would be amazing.

3808 Ron March 20, 2011 at 3:47 am

I would like to spend a thousand miles with my late great grandfather Henry. He passed away when i was very young and lived far away from where i grew up. He was born to german parents who farmed in russia, and were pushed out in the early 1900′s. They settled in Greely Colorado just out side Denver. All i have are a few childhood memories and stories from my father and grand father of how he lived. How he and my ggrandmother survived WW2 and being german, The great depression and even the cold war, being a german from russia makes you a nazi comunist in some peoples eyes. I would like to hear it in his words how he handeled all that and still raised a family. The thing i remember most is his funeral, there were somany people we had to have several services to keep from over crowding the funeral home. He was genuinely admired and loved by many people. It speakes volumes about his character.

3809 Josh March 20, 2011 at 4:52 am

I would like to walk a thousand miles with my father, mother, and brothers. Within this last year and a half, we have bonded so much together through some of the relationship problems that we’ve had. Also we’ve reminisced on our lives and have deliberated what experiences and reactions have made us who we are. It’s this that I feel like walking a thousand miles would seem wonderful with the family that has been given to me.

3810 Clifford Campos March 20, 2011 at 5:06 am

I would walk a thousand miles with my Dad, behind him, out of respect. He is why I am the man that I am. He taught me to have a pair,integrity,courtesy,compassion,defend others and that no one owes me anything,you earn it, even a plate of food. He used to tell me,”Son,It’s better to be respected that to be well liked.Never sell yourself out or others”. It’s men like him that made this country great.

3811 nik rice March 20, 2011 at 5:17 am

I would choose to walk with Adam-Gabriel-Michael. He is the purest form of man. He has seen it all and would never let me stray. I would walk with our first earthly father anywhere.

3812 edwin March 20, 2011 at 5:55 am

I’d walk 1,000 miles with Teddy Roosevelt, and maybe learn something about manliness on the way.

3813 Timothy Peter March 20, 2011 at 6:38 am

Who would I like to walk 1000 miles with? I think I’d have to go with the Nuge(Ted Nugent, The Motor City Mad Man, Uncle Ted, El Nuge’rino), one of the craziest guitarist/activists ever. Now Ted might be a little out there, but this guy can talk, and talk about man stuff. You wouldn’t want to get stuck on a 1,000 mile hike with Elton John, he’d complain about his feet and how his little shoes are to tight. No, I’d be right to pick Uncle Ted. I’ll give you one reason why….you ready? Old Fred Bear. That’s enough information for me. Now All I need is a new pair of boots to replace my 5y/o pair of Wolverines, which are still kicking I might add.

Tim

3814 James Lewis March 20, 2011 at 7:46 am

I would walk 1000 miles with my Grandfather. I would ask him about being a man, a husband and a father. I would seek clarification on all the lessons he taught me before I was mature enough to understand them. I would talk to him about my wife which he never got to meet and about my children whom I try to raise with the same love that he showed me. And tell him how much I miss him.

3815 bob March 20, 2011 at 7:59 am

I would walk 1,000 miles with my wife and another couple Rick and Kristi. We enjoy walks in the local metro parks enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors.

3816 Jeff March 20, 2011 at 8:21 am

I’d walk with my father. I enjoy his company, and we both love being outside, getting air, and taking in the world slowly, one step at a time.

3817 Ryan March 20, 2011 at 8:29 am

I’d walk a thousand miles with my Grand Father.
He is a World War II Vet from the Navy. He was on a submarine all over the Pacific. They were most known for helping the guerrillas in the Philippines.

3818 John Smith March 20, 2011 at 8:37 am

Honestly? I’d walk 1,000 miles with Ben Franklin. I just finished his autobiography (found it after reading articles here at AOM), and I feel like I could learn a lot from him. The guy is legit.

3819 Kieron March 20, 2011 at 8:56 am

I would like to walk 1000 miles with the fictional character Bagger Vance. In the book “The Legend of Bagger Vance” he is a caddie with mystical god-like characteristics. He originally took human form to help a World War I veteran named Randulph Junah.

Before the war Junah was the hometown hero of Savannah, GA. He was one of the most promising golfers and an all around gentleman. He went to war as the captain of his squadron and was the only one left alive at the end of it from his battalion. Bagger Vance crafted him a driver out of a tree outside his hospital following the war. Whenever Junah had PTSD flashbacks, Bagger would close his hands around the club and he would calm down.

I am both a golfer, a caddie, and a religious person, so having the opportunity to walk 1000 miles with such an interesting character would lend present great conversation and insight. As they say, golf is a walking sport. It sure would be great to have a new pair of shoes to walk the links in.

3820 Marcus Galen March 20, 2011 at 9:03 am

I would love to walk those 1000 miles with my great grandfather George. He led an interesting life first as a cabby in New York then tricking his wife (my great grandmother) to move to Oregon where he started his life long occupation as a tailor. I knew him as a very young boy but, he was old and I was too young to understand what he had to offer. Now, as I look at walking in his foot steps, diverting from my previous path and starting to design and tailor clothes myself, I would love to walk and talk to him as the strong wild young man he was.

3821 Jared March 20, 2011 at 9:10 am

I’d love to walk 1,000 miles with Ernest Shackleton. His life fascinates me, and I would love the opportunity to glean wisdom from his experiences as a leader.

There are many others! Jesus, Theodore Roosevelt, Leo Tolstoy, etc.

Thank you for the opportunity to win an incredible pair of boots!

3822 Mark March 20, 2011 at 9:36 am

I’d probably walk a thousand miles with Andre the Giant. That way when I got tired, he could just carry me on his back, a la The Princess Bride.

3823 JJ March 20, 2011 at 10:02 am

I’d walk a thousand miles with Bill Bryson. He wrote a book about walking a thousand miles and the conversation would never get old.

3824 Mr. Blather March 20, 2011 at 10:15 am

I’d like to walk 1,000 miles with Ernest Hemingway. We’d take a couple shotguns and a couple fishing poles and head out into the woods. Of course, he’d talk about himself most of the time and he’d exaggerate his time in uniform, but it would be a fun hike.

3825 Sagar March 20, 2011 at 10:26 am

Would love to walk a 1000-miles with Ernest Hemingway. Except for the last bit with the gun, a man who lived his life to the fullest and wrote simply some of the most beautiful prose in the world

3826 simon clark March 20, 2011 at 10:53 am

without a doubt i would like to walk the 1000 miles with my father and find out all that he is about and hopefully re-inspire him to be creative yet once again.

3827 Cole March 20, 2011 at 10:53 am

To quote Highlander, there can be only one! And for me, that one is Billy Connolly, a man I grew up watching on television, videos and finally had the pleasure of seeing perform live just this year. Watching him in interviews these days, he seems to have a wisdom that only comes from age, living a great life and having the confidence to remain open to everything. Plus let’s be honest, if you were to walk 1000 miles with anyone, you’d damn-well want them to be funny. And I can’t think of anyone funnier or manlier than Billy Connolly.

Alternatively, if I could give someone the opportunity to walk 1000 miles with anyone, It’d have to go my Dad. His Father (my Grandfather) died when he was all of 14, and just becoming a man himself. I’d like to give him the opportunity to show him what a great man he’s gone on to become and to just share stories, tales and generally shoot the shit, in a way that they never got to.

3828 M Funk March 20, 2011 at 11:07 am

I would walk with Steve Irwin, to see the world as he did. Also, to learn to survive in the wild, and live off the land.

3829 Eddy March 20, 2011 at 11:09 am

I’d walk alone, right out of new york city, until i reach a place where people appreciate boots.

3830 Matt March 20, 2011 at 11:14 am

I would walk a thousand miles with my best friend Mitchell. Mighty Mitch. Relatively small stature, extraordinarily big heart. Every inch of his small physical body is pervaded by courage and integrity. And it rubs off of him. Whenever he is around, I start holding myself to a higher standard, because I know he would not let me get away with second rate weak-assery. So when we would have bravely conquered 999 miles, and my body would be on the verge of collapse; bleeding blisters torturing my feet, in dire need of liquid and my face marred by sweat and dust, he would give me the courage to go on. Scream, yell at me. Push me, pull me, drag me if needed. He truly is my brother, and not in the dirtcheap way it is tossed around these days. He does not merely know the bro code, he is the living embodiment of the bro code who makes me a better man each and every day.

3831 Jesse March 20, 2011 at 11:26 am

I would walk with my friend Rayne. Or my wife. Or both.

3832 Tim March 20, 2011 at 11:26 am

I would like to walk 1000 miles with Jesus and my wife

3833 Ben March 20, 2011 at 11:58 am

I know that it’s been said before, but I would walk with my grandfather. The man grew up in the depression, taught soldiers in the Second World War, went to college and became and engineer, and all the while raising a large family. He works outside everyday, even now in his late 80s, and can fashion tools from almost anything. He also reads daily, from the classics to the bio of Teddy Roosevelt. He sees things the way they really are, and doesn’t get caught up in things that really don’t matter.

I’d walk a thousand miles with my grandfather, and I’d be a much better man for it.

3834 Tim March 20, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I’d like to take a walk with Percy Fawcett to look for the Lost City of Z.

3835 Brandon March 20, 2011 at 12:17 pm

I’d walk 1000 miles with my grandfather. I used to love to go on his walks with him and I miss them.

3836 Stephen March 20, 2011 at 12:28 pm

I guess if I had to choose one person to walk 1,000 miles with it would be the person I am already on the journey with, my wife. She is not only the mother of my six children but is also my best friend, we have moved all over the place being in the military and every time she gets a little grin and says how much fun this next adventure is going to be. I have been blessed to walk 1,000 plus miles with her already and I am looking forward to the next couple of thousand.

3837 M. Dunn March 20, 2011 at 12:28 pm

I would walk 1,000 miles with either my wife (who can honestly walk that long and never bat an eyelash, reason number 43256 why I love her), or, being a law student, Atticus Finch.

3838 John H. March 20, 2011 at 12:37 pm

I would do the walk with both my grandfathers, my father, my step-son, and my two sons. My grandfathers never got to meet my step-son and sons, and my father was never really able to accept my step-son as his grandson. I would selfishly take the opportunity to get to know all of them much better, and love and enjoy them all more.

3839 Tyler March 20, 2011 at 12:52 pm

I would choose to walk with my great grandfather. For much of my life he was the primary male role model I had. He was devoutly Jehovah’s Witness, believing in it with his entire being. He used to travel from town to town trying to spread what to him was the good word, sometimes it got him ridiculed and even chased out of town a few times but he never gave up. He never held any of that against people, always respecting their choices and beliefs. He was one of the few who respected me and fought for me when I chose to walk my own path and leave the religion, for that I am thankful and wish I could have walked with him earlier in life and seen it all with him.

3840 Chris March 20, 2011 at 12:53 pm

I would walk 1,000 miles with my girlfriend Celine, even if it took 10 years.

3841 Rob Berra March 20, 2011 at 1:00 pm

A year ago, I’d have probably said Thomas Jefferson, but today I must say “my dad” who died a couple of months ago. He’s off on a new journey, and I’d like to walk a thousand miles with him along the way.

3842 Jacob Marsh March 20, 2011 at 1:07 pm

I’d like to walk 1,000 miles with my brother, James. He’s one of the more inspirational people I know, and the miles we’ve walked thus far are far from enough.

3843 pylorns March 20, 2011 at 1:49 pm

John Wayne. It would be interesting to hear his take on our current affairs political and socially.

3844 Ryan March 20, 2011 at 2:01 pm

I’d walk 1000 miles with the Apostles Paul and Peter, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

It would also be interesting to march 1000 miles any number of great military leaders. From MAJ Richard “Dick” Winters to the 300 Spartans who fought at the Hot Gates.

3845 Dan March 20, 2011 at 2:07 pm

I’d like to take a 1000 mile walk with my father. Although we have been close my entire life, I feel like he still has so much wisdom and experience that I could learn from.

3846 Ken Tanis March 20, 2011 at 2:23 pm

A 1000 mile walk with my grandfather. So much to learn from him.

3847 George March 20, 2011 at 2:36 pm

I would like to walk 1,000 miles with Samuel Hamilton from Steinbeck’s East of Eden.

3848 Kevin Blew March 20, 2011 at 2:44 pm

I would like to take a 1,000 mile walk with my friend Houston, who passed away a year ago this month from cancer. He was an avid hiker and walker whose even temperament and wisdom are still inspirational to those of us blessed to know him. I’d rather walk one mile with that man than a thousand with anyone else.

3849 Jack Mal March 20, 2011 at 2:58 pm

I would walk 1000 miles with Ibn Battuta, the 14th century Islamic Scholar and traveller who walked, rode, and sailed across the known Islamic world and had hundreds of adventures along the way. Before he would return to his home he would encountered pirates, bandits, caravans, splendid ancient cities, Kings, Princes, holy men, and the black death. I would love to be able to share an adventure with him.

3850 Ryan March 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm

I’d take a 1000 mile walk with Winston Churchill and would ensure I had at least two hips flasks with me. Infact I think 10,000 miles would be better!

3851 Martin March 20, 2011 at 3:10 pm

I’d like to walk 1,000 miles with my old man.

3852 Lord_Nikhil March 20, 2011 at 3:23 pm

I would walk 1000 miles in a pair of 1000 miles boots with ‘the Death’..

And if his (or her’s – without being gender insensitive towards men-folk) feet are not yet blistered and bleeding of torn away boots and he’s (or she’s) still able to walk, then would gladly go with him – to wherever he takes my soul.. (remember, I said ‘walk’ Mr./Mrs Death and not fly or apparate or glide).. ;-)

3853 Brian HIxson March 20, 2011 at 3:25 pm

I would walk 1,000 miles with my uncle Tony. He’s help raised me my entire life and has mode me into what I am today. He taught me to fish, hunt, and provided me with knives and other “dangerous” toys long before most kids start getting them. Sadly due to his diabetes tearing up his knees he can no longer make it back to the lake with me, out into the woods to hunt, or go on hikes with me.

3854 Matt Dickie March 20, 2011 at 3:26 pm

I would like to walk 1000 miles with my girlfriend. I like hiking with her because I get to share my knowledge of the outdoors, get to know her better and I can show off a few man skills along the way. Also, I am sure that if we could put up with one another for that long it would make some life decisions down the road a whole lot easier.

3855 John Chalus March 20, 2011 at 3:34 pm

I could use a really nice pair of boots like these. I do a lot of walking. I am a former USN SEAL and would provide an excellent evaluation of these boots.

3856 Andrey March 20, 2011 at 3:40 pm

I would walk 1000 miles with my grandfather. I remember him constantly teaching me the things i would need to know if i were ever to become a real man. Things that no book could teach. If he was alive today i would take taht thousand mile walk with him for I still have so much to learn.

3857 Daniel March 20, 2011 at 3:47 pm

I probably would want to walk 1,000 miles with my mom. She was in a wheel chair my whole life due to a car collision. She passed away two years ago and I would love to just walk next to her and ask for her advice in all that I am doing.

3858 Paul March 20, 2011 at 3:56 pm

I would want to walk 1,000 miles with my grandfather who passed away years ago. I feel like I never had the chance to spend enough time with him.

3859 Heather March 20, 2011 at 4:22 pm

My Dad and I have spent years hiking together, all with old leather hobnailed boots. I’d walk another 1000 with him, barefoot, but I’d love to see him in these boots.

3860 Sam March 20, 2011 at 4:28 pm

As cheesy as it is, I would walk with Indiana Jones.

- He gets into exciting adventures
- His sidekicks never get hurt
- He must have tons of good stories, both personal and historical

The list goes on.

3861 Brandon March 20, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Definitely my father. It’d be a helluva lotta fun.

3862 Pablo March 20, 2011 at 4:34 pm

I would like to take a 1000 mile walk with my father; he passed away last year.

3863 Chris R. March 20, 2011 at 4:55 pm

I’d do my 1000 mile walk with P. J. O’Rourke. Hey, the trip wouldn’t be boring, that’s for sure.

3864 Peter March 20, 2011 at 5:06 pm

I would love to walk 1000 miles with my grandfather Peter, my name sake, who passed away when I was five. Though I don’t remember meeting him I do remember refering to him as, Grandpa from Florida. I’d ask him what it was like growing up in Sicily, and why he came to America. I was told by my mother what an honest hard working man he was who loved this country and all it had to offer. I know I would receive much wisdom from a 1000 mile walk with him.

3865 Chris Smith March 20, 2011 at 5:15 pm

I would like to take a 1000 mile walk with my dad. i have never really known him and we never talk.

3866 mike dale March 20, 2011 at 5:16 pm

I’d walk a 1,000 miles with my fiancee, Heather. We always have great fun and conversations together, love traveling and she would make a great companion on my journey.

3867 Michael March 20, 2011 at 5:20 pm

I’d walk with my dad. He’s been dead 15 years now and every day I miss him. I remember the hikes he used to take me on when I was a kid, and think how nice it would be if we could walk in the woods again.

3868 Jonathan March 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Although I would prefer to walk with Jesus Christ, I realize that there would actually be no need since he has already been walking with me my entire life. So alternatively, I‘d choose to walk with Bruce Lee. In these bad boys I would at least have a chance of keeping up with him. Not only physically, but perhaps intellectually and spiritually as well. Plenty already know that he was quite the philosopher and critical thinker. Author/Life Artist John Little put together a book called “The Warrior Within” which was based on Bruce Lee’s philosophies. That book helped guide a young man through a confusing world. And if I could at least spend 1,000 miles with him or even a mile, I’m sure he would have plenty of insight and life secrets he’d more than love to share.

3869 J. Cornwell March 20, 2011 at 5:55 pm

I would enjoy walking a thousand miles with George Washington. The man was the epitome of manliness. Hopefully he’d have his own pair of Wolverine’s for this walk.

3870 Mikkel March 20, 2011 at 6:09 pm

I would walk 1000 miles with my brother. I have traveled the world with that guy, no one I can count on more.

3871 Christopher Glenn March 20, 2011 at 6:15 pm

I walk 1000 miles with that man’s man: Humphrey Bogart.

3872 Amanda N. March 20, 2011 at 6:31 pm

I would walk 1000 miles with my grandfather Charles. He grew up during the great depression, lied about his age to be able serve in the Navy during WW2, was actually at Pearl Harbor when it was attacked, worked heavy construction for 20 years and helped construct several bridges and buildings that are still operating today, retired and started his own farm, and was the father of 3 lovely daughters. He accomplished so much and still was humble but sadly he passed before i could really get to know him well. I would walk 1000 miles with him to get to know him better.

3873 Michael bergmann March 20, 2011 at 6:39 pm

I’d take a 1000 mile walk with my grandfather.

3874 Joey March 20, 2011 at 6:44 pm

I’d walk 1000 miles with Forrest Gump.

3875 Hunter Becker March 20, 2011 at 6:58 pm

I’d like to walk 1000 miles with my great grandfather Caroll Houge. I knew him as a kid but not very well. He had many epic stories and was a real man.

3876 Alex March 20, 2011 at 7:06 pm

I’d like to take a walk with Nelson Mandela. I just feel like he’d truly have a story to tell, and who wouldn’t want to walk in South Africa? A gorgeous country.

3877 Seth March 20, 2011 at 7:12 pm

I’d definitely be the man that walks 500 miles, and then 500 more with my amazing wife…

3878 Bob Lehardy March 20, 2011 at 7:14 pm

I’d walk 1000 miles with my wife – she is the one person I would want to spend that much time with in this life.

I would take a 1000 mile walk with my 1000 mile boots.

I’d love to take a 1,000-mile walk with my grandfather, Bill. He died 6 months before I – his first grandchild – was born in 1953. He is kind of a mystery to the family. He came from Eastern Europe but would never say from where he cane and why he left. My mom and aunt – his two children – speak of him with love and affection. He loved to read, to talk and to think – all things I share with him.

I would walk a thousand miles with the love of my life that I’ve recently reconnected with. Soon after we met and fell in love she moved to Paris and felt she couldn’t keep up the relationship from 3,000 miles away. After months of not speaking she wrote to me and now I’m going there to take her home. Looks like I’ll need 3 pairs !

I would like to take a very long walk with my parents. I see them very rear these days. I left home to work abroad when I was very young. I wish to spend more time and get to know them better.

I’d like to walk with my great-grandfather, Cova Priest. He was a WWI vet who went to Europe on the SS Leviathan. He went home to Belle Glade, FL afterwards. He drowned while saving a man’s life who had fallen of a dredging barge. Kinda ironic. No one in the family really has any stories of him so a 1000 miles might break the ice.

I would love to walk 1000 miles with Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

I’d love to walk 1000 miles with Salvadore Dali. He’s my all time hero and I’m sure he’d have at least 1000 miles worth of wisdom.

3886 Manuel March 20, 2011 at 7:57 pm

My father. I’d walk 1000 miles with him, given the chance. Why? God knows why. Perhaps because as simple as he is, his character is as a rock.

I’d like to walk a 1000 miles with my dog.

3888 Jason mc March 20, 2011 at 8:19 pm

I would take a walk with Bill Braski and find out if all the legendary stories are true.

I’d take a 1000 mile walk with my grandfather; though he probably did 1000 miles marching through hell and back all across the Pacific theaters (All of them), so I’m not sure how amenable he’d be. Though knowing him, he’d probably do it if I wanted to without complaint.

My Lady and I are about to begin our 2 year travels circumnavigating the Globe, UK to New Zealand and nearly everything in between. We’re going by foot, train, plane, boat and automobile.
I’d go well over 1000 miles with my Lady, my darling wife.

3892 Todd March 20, 2011 at 8:30 pm

I would walk 1,000 miles with Chesty Puller. He was a leader of men that led from the front. He respected his Non Commissioned Officers and was one of the early leaders that empowered his men to the lowest levels. I would love to learn his methods of how to be a leader.

3893 Brendan March 20, 2011 at 8:37 pm

Although I would love to walk with my gradfather, which I miss dearly and I know that he would have thousands of things to teach me. I would have to say I would walk 1,000 miles with Theodore Roosevelt. He has always been a idol of mine. A true Man’s Man and a proud American. He did it all, I would like to learn a few things and spend some time with him.

3894 Lisa Beth W. March 20, 2011 at 8:41 pm

I would walk 1,000 miles with my husband, who is the one to whom I would give these fabulous books if I won them!

3895 Lisa Beth W. March 20, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Oops, “boots”. :)

my dog doug is the only person with enough energy to go the 1000 miles

3899 Jay Archibald March 20, 2011 at 9:12 pm

I would walk 1000 miles with my son, Owen. He is 13 months old and I would have to carry him for 999.5 of those miles, but damn, he’s just awesome.

3900 Jonathan W March 20, 2011 at 9:13 pm

I’d walk a 1,000 miles with my grandfather, whom I never knew but my father sees in me more and more every day.
