Walking 500 Miles
You know the song by The Proclaimers, right? The chorus goes, “But I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more just to be the man who walks a thousand miles to fall down at your door.”
Michael Baker, stuck in Colorado Springs, Colorado and trying to think of a way to propose to his girlfriend back in Provo, Utah, had this song stuck in his head. 500 miles is about the distance between the two cities, and with his dad’s encouragement, Barker decided to make a video of himself walking “500 miles” to Provo.
Although Barker didn’t actually walk from Colorado Springs to Provo, he did trek about 150 miles with a drone and a GoPro getting footage for his video, according to ABC news.
