And fall down at your door?


Came here for that, left feeling satisfied.

This. This is the correct way to look at him:

All that walking and he's not going anywhere. What a waste.

Pangea: There are a lot of haters in this thread. Walking 10 miles is not a huge feat in an of itself.

Having the resolve to do ANYTHING consistently for 100 days straight is however.

I bet most of the people dismissing this as an accomplishment couldn't do it.


Pbpbpbpt.  "Resolve".  Resolving to do something difficult for 100 days is noteworthy, but walking 3.5 hours a day or so isn't really difficult.  This is really more a story about "Local man has job/life situation that lets him take 100 days away from family and responsibilities to raise awareness for his cause".

I'm 8-ish months (250 days?) into my "resolve" to lose a ton of weight through diet and exercise.  I'm covering about half his average weekly mileage, doing resistance training, and working full-time while being a dad, husband, and coach, too.  Should I get a news story?  Of-farking-course not!

Sticking to something like you're doing isn't that common either. Keep up the good work.

One major difference is that you're not helping a charity.

Perhaps you don't fall into the group of "most" that I was talking about, but I think you might fall into the hater group. NTTAWWT

HotIgneous Intruder: That will take some discipline but it's not an incredibly difficult feat, particularly if he's on pavement all the time and he's only going to do it for 100 days.

If he were a real badass for Jesus, he'd do this:

Big deal. She was walking downhill the whole way.

ThreeEdgedSword: He's walking a 1,000 miles to combat human trafficking?  How?  Is he busting every human trafficker he comes across like he's Batman?  I don't get it.


It's for "raising awareness". That's the first real step in solving the problem, and the toughest one. As opposed to, you know, actually tracking down and catching the traffickers.

I'm headed to Tilted Kilt later tonight to raise awareness of Scottish independence. And I'm not even Scottish. That's just how I roll.

All for human trafficking.
Now how the hell is taking a thousand mile walk going to stop people from kidnapping and exporting your child to Syria?

Seems like a gun would be more effective.

Babwa Wawa: I'm going to spend 1,500 hours on Fark this year.  People will look at me like I'm crazy.  Which is a correct way of looking at someone who spends 4 hours a day on Fark.


only 4 hours? what is wrong with you?

10 miles a day, thats pretty dang easy actually
