Ok, don’t mistake the title of this post for one of my hiking trip reports. I’ve heard of long walks, but this one takes the cake. The person on this site, Karl Bushby, a 33 year old ex-paratrooper is trying to become the first person to complete a 36,000 mile, unbroken, round the world walk. Hey I’m 33, I can do it too! Actually I’d just settle for being able to do the Appalalchian Trail. Bushby started in 1998 from near the southern tip of the South American Continent, in the Chilean town of Punta Arenas. He’s done 10,000 miles to this point and is supposed to finish in England in 2009. Hard to imagine giving up 10 years of your life but what an experience it would be.
