Last year, nearly 7,000 of you entered our contest and wowed us with how you handle life on the road (check out the resulting March 1, 2002, March 1, 2002, special issue in our archives). Balancing work and home, often from afar, is a challenge you manage with expert skill. Last year, your entries moved us — to tears, to laughter, to sheer awe, and the occasional debate. It was difficult, but in the end we chose four readers we thought epitomized the ultimate road warriors. Our winners were both immensely practical and profoundly philosophical, and they clearly knew their way around a terminal.
So go ahead, ladies and gentlemen, ENTER NOW!. You could win the grand prize, an all-new 2003 Lincoln Navigator. Second prize is a deluxe Sanyo Fisher home theater, plus a golf, ski, or beach getaway from AA Vacations. And three third-prize winners will each receive a Sanyo digital camera, plus their choice of three AA Vacations. What’s more, all winners will be featured in an upcoming special issue of American Way.
Make sure to elaborate in your answers to the narrative questions — the judges are very interested in what you have to say. While miles logged is surely an indicator of life on the road, we’re more interested in your attitude and know-how. We can’t wait to hear from you. The contest ends October 7, so open up that laptop and show us why you’re the ultimate road warrior.
