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

My buddy Tim is a pastor in the local area. He is a watch nut and literally spends all of his time serving other people. Seriously though…he has two ‘mini-apartments’ full of watches. Every single watch has a story…I figure one of the TSOVET watches would be a nice addition. The SVT-QS40 watch…a nice watch, nice story and a nice way to express my gratitude for all his hard work in serving to local community.

A gift from my family, and the Art of Manliness family.

760 Steve July 31, 2012 at 7:07 pm

The EDC Kit with Free Ring appeals to my inner survivalist.

778 Sam L. July 31, 2012 at 11:24 pm

784 jason August 1, 2012 at 12:21 am

tsovet SVT-QS40 watch for me please!

785 Milin August 1, 2012 at 12:28 am

I’ve needed a new motorbike pack for a while. The Vandal (black) looks like it would fit the bill perfectly. Easily hold enough gear for a couple of weeks worth of touring.

786 Sam August 1, 2012 at 12:57 am

The SVT-QS40 is pretty nice and would look great with my new bike.

787 Q August 1, 2012 at 12:57 am

Let’s face it — we need to eat at home more than we do. I’ve been a bad influence over the last couple of months and have vowed to turn it around. I would be thankful for the Wabi Nabe…something sized for two people meals with a groovy sense of style just in time for the on-coming fall. Beef stew with fresh baked bread anyone? I muse that we would season it by using lard rendered from the back fat of cheese-fed pigs. (Mister has rendered lard in the past…and it is awesome for seasoning cast iron.) Thanks for the consideration.

788 Parker August 1, 2012 at 1:03 am


789 Travis August 1, 2012 at 1:21 am

I would love a black Rummy messenger bag, and that Tsovet SVT-AR77 watch would add a beautiful touch to my wardrobe, but what I really want from your site is that BEAUTIFUL piece of Benchmade steel, the Mini-Griptilian Tanto! My old Meyerco Blackie Collins knife is really starting to wear down–the clip has long since broken off, and the frame lock is about broken, too. I could seriously use the Griptilian to take up the reigns that the old man is ready to hand off!

790 Marcus August 1, 2012 at 1:27 am

The Vandal (black)

791 Isaac August 1, 2012 at 1:27 am

As a budding cook and an independent kind of guy I’d love to start cooking with the excellent looking Wabi Nabi pot available from huckberry.

792 Sam August 1, 2012 at 1:30 am

My watch just recently got crushed so I’m looking at the SVT-QS40 for a nice new one!

793 Daren Howard August 1, 2012 at 1:40 am

I like the size 36 straight leg jeans in the general store.

794 Chris August 1, 2012 at 1:46 am


795 Fred August 1, 2012 at 1:48 am

That Rambler backpack from Mission looks mighty fine.

796 Kevin August 1, 2012 at 2:18 am

Whiskey Lovers Set would be great.

797 Chris August 1, 2012 at 2:59 am

Tsovet has not 1 but 2 left-handed watches up for sale? Put me down for the SVT-AT76, please!

798 daniel August 1, 2012 at 3:28 am

i would like a SVT-AT76 tsovet watch:) it looks really cool because of the odd numbers being just a line!

799 Nathaniel Graham August 1, 2012 at 3:44 am

The Mini-Griptilian Tanto sounds good to me.

800 Andy August 1, 2012 at 4:44 am
