A crash course in changing the world.

George Meegan
First person ever to walk the length of the Americas, Lecturer and my best friend

George Meegan is an adventurer, lecturer and world traveller.

He holds the most official world’s records (8) of any European. This includes “The Longest Unbroken March of All Time.” The epic journey he made from Tierra Del Fuego, South America to Prudhoe
Bay, Alaska; 19,019 miles was completed
in 2,425 days and took place between 1977 and 1983. In 2000 he completed
almost 500km. to reach Barrow, Alaska.
The culmination was here, in the largest Eskimo settlement in the world.
At the historic millennium Meegan uniquely got the USA
to, formerly and in public, apologize to First Nations. These are some
of the words “cowardly killing of woman and children …”

The wh*** monumental journey was made on foot. The story of this epic transverse was chronicled in his book The Longest Walk. Meegan’s
very personal account of the challenges, the hardships of a man
travelling alone and without money, for years on end, across the vast
sweep of our planet. And always the extraordinary people he encountered
as he walked clean through the length of Americas.
“Wonderful!” says Meegan today.

Interestingly, at the time no human had ever traversed the Americas, be it by vehicle or even aircraft; but of course Meegan was on foot. Today, near
three decades later, the feat remains un-equalled. His book is held at
the USA Library of Congress, and he is pictured in the G*****ss Book of
World Records, Japan, GB and the USA.
The adventure has been excerpted as an elective text for Japanese
universities, and was judged as ‘inspirational.’ and put into Japan’s
National Curriculum A textbook of historic adventurers was distributed
throughout most middle schools in the Japanese archipelago. It has been
converted into an audio version distributed nationwide in English
speaking countries. Publisher McGraw Hill saw fit to include a quote of
Meegan’s regarding weather in Central America in a social studies
textbook commonly used throughout U.S.
middle schools.

His feat has earned him some international recognition. George was the ‘most unknown’ ever to be in a four page Bio section in People magazine, which was then followed up in a three page
update. He has appeared on the NBC Today Show three
times, CBS Morning News and ABC Good Morning
America
. For two hour’s he was quizzed on the radio by Larry King
and then put onto CNN’s Larry King Live. He has lectured
at the New York Explorer’s Club, standing room only and made numerous
lectures worldwide, especially to kids.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently.

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
