For many who live life on the road, being a “Road Warrior” is as much a state of mind as it is the state of their frequent flyer accounts. There is true satisfaction with the travel skills acquired amid the surprises, twists, turns and stories of the road’s adventures, not to mention the stamina that the sport of being a Road Warrior requires.
American Way Magazine is putting out the call for its Road Warrior Search, a call for all “in the game” to enter and potentially be selected as this year’s MVP. While the staff of American Way magazine will continue to review each of the thousands of entries and select the five Road Warrior finalists, it will ultimately be the readership of American Way that will vote for, and select, the Grand Prize-winning MVP, as well as the second- and third-prize winners.
The grand prize winner will score 2 million Hilton HHonors bonus points, plus 1 million AAdvantage miles. The second-prize package includes a Bose Lifestyle 48 Home Entertainment System, a SoundDock Digital Music System for iPod and a pair of QuietComfort 2 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones. The three third-prize winners will each win a five-day vacation for two to the Hilton Waikoloa Village on Hawaii’s Big Island, plus a two-year subscription to T- Mobile HotSpot Wi-Fi Internet service. Each of the five finalists will also receive a Panasonic Toughbook CF-74 laptop computer.
American has produced a series of podcasts that highlight the search for the ultimate Road Warrior and share the experiences of past winners. To download the audio files and subscribe to the podcast feed, log on to http://www.americanwaymag.com – Contest entry forms are online and will be accepted until Aug. 31. Winners will be announced in the Jan. 15, 2007, edition of American Way magazine.
