Steve Vaught is a 39-year-old man from Youngstown, Ohio who now resides in Southern California. Well, actually for the next several months he’ll be residing in a variety of states: California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.
What’s the deal?…
Steve has a weight problem, and he’s set out to tackle the issue himself. His plan: To WALK from San Diego, California to New York City in 6 months!
He started April 10, 2005, and as of today, he’s in Winslow, Arizona. That means he’s only passed through one-and-a-half of the NINE states he ultimately hopes to traverse… and only 3 more months left to go.
Perhaps his goal will be readjusted. Perhaps this will become a bigger goal and lifestyle change than Steve could even have imagined… Who knows?
Stay tuned to see where Steve’s walk takes him, and where this battle to fight the bulge ends up.
For the record, Steve has a wife and kids…
and dozens of friends and supporters who are behind him all the way!
- You, too, can show your support for Steve simply by signing his guestbook.
- Check to see if he’ll be passing by your town… If he is, stop by and say Hello and offer some words of encouragement!
- And don’t miss all the great pictures from the road that he’s posted! (…and photos of his mishaps too)
Good luck to you, Steve! No matter how long it takes you, we’re with you in spirit, and we are grateful to share your experience through the pictures you post. Keep up the good work!
…and keep chasing that proverbial “carrot”.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
