The Weekly Huckberry Giveaway: July 27, 2012

in Giveaway

The winner of last week’s giveaway was:

Christopher Stancato, from Pleasant Prairie, WI. Chris will be receiving the Whiskey Lover’s Set ($60), which is available in the General Store and includes Made in America, mouth-blown glass tumblers, along with unique natural soapstone whiskey stones. I hope Chris enjoys his whiskey set, while sitting in a leather armchair, and reading the Art of Manliness.

My Pick This Week

This week Huckberry went for a lawn/pool games theme that features an eclectic assortment of stuff for having fun outside this summer. Obviously aimed at those who live outside the Midwest, for whom “fun” and “outside” and “summer” do not constitute a contradiction in terms.

But for me the best thing in this week’s store is the chance to sign up for the GORUCK Challenge at a discount. The GORUCK Challenge is an intense, Special Operations-inspired, team-oriented, 8-10 hour, 15-20 mile guided tour of your city. It starts late at night or in the early morning (like 1:00 am), and goes into daylight. You perform a series of missions patterned after your guide’s military experience, all while hauling around six bricks in your backpack, carrying heavy things like logs, and doing lots of running, push-ups, and other physical exercises. The challenge is designed to build camaraderie, teach leadership, and stretch your capabilities.

The GORUCK Challenge was founded by a Green Beret, and $10 of every GORUCK entry fee goes to The Green Beret Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides unconventional support to wounded Green Berets, their families, and Gold Star family members of killed Green Berets.

My brother and I are going to be doing our first GORUCK challenge in Oklahoma City on Saturday, November 24 (10:00 pm start time). I’d love to get some area AoM readers to join us and get an Art of Manliness team going. If you’ve ever wanted to see the founder of AoM cry like a little girl in the middle of a cold November night, here’s your chance
