End of the Walk Contest Winner

natchez trace, meriwether lewis

For 34 days, I told you my stories. About hiking 444 miles on the ancient Natchez Trace. About spending five weeks with my almost-80-year-old father. About the ghost of Meriwether Lewis. About how To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis came together.

As I limped up to the end of my 34-day walk of the Natchez Trace, I wanted to read YOUR stories, times in your lives when you wanted to quit but didn’t. Your comments, your sharing made it a universal celebration of success. I’m fortunate to know so many tough, dogged, resilient people, to call you my friends.

Thank you for filling the last few miles of my Natchez Trace walk with your richness, your humor and your joy.

I signed one book at the finish line. Milepost 442 on the Natchez Trace. I used that book for a special task: my very first author reading.

Last night, I asked my fabulous Nashville hostess Tori Young if her son Thomas could draw the winner’s name. He bounded into the room and waited while I shook up the entries. Tori, Thomas and I are all witness to the winner.

    Andra, Just wanted to send along my congratulations on finishing your walk!  That was an incredible feat.  I’m a friend of Alison Dailey’s and she led me to your blog about a year ago and I’ve been following you ever since.  (I’m also a frustrated accountant, trying to figure out what comes next.) Maybe someday we’ll actually meet in person!    Sincerely, Maggie Burghoff

  14. Congratulations, Andra, for doing what you said you would do… the walk and the book. I never doubted you. I love little Em. There were times when Merry could have used a good slapping around, but he was fun to go on the trip with… so were you.

    Andra, what a trek you have had, not only the journey on the Natchez Trace, but, the journey of bringing Merry to life. Thank you, dear woman, for sharing the journey, and for being such an amazing inspiration. Hope you are soaking those feet!
