Walk the Earth

Do you remember that scene towards the end of the movie Pulp Fiction where Samuel L. Jackson’s character Jules says that he wants to give up being a gangster in order to “walk the earth”?

Well according to this Guardian Unlimited article, some crazy Brit guy, a 36-year old ex-paratrooper, has been trying to do exactly that: Become the first person to walk all the way around the World. He’s already covered about 17,000 miles by walking for the last 7 years, and is not quite half way there yet — he has another 19,000 miles to go.

Unfortunately he might not make it, because he just got arrested in Russia for having the incorrect immigration paperwork after crossing the frozen Bering Strait from Alaska — plus a gun and a GPS system, both of which are illegal in Russia.
