Crossing The Bearing Strait By Foot

Remember Karl Busby and his Goliath Expedition? I’ve mentioned it a few times in the past, but just as a reminder, Karl is the guy who is attempting to walk around the World. Karl started in South America, back in 1998, at Ushuaia, Argentina, and made his way North, reaching Alaska last year.

One of the more daunting tasks for Karl was that he intended to walk across the frozen wastelands of the Bearing Strait to cross into Russia, a feat that had not been accomplished by anyone in recorded history, and seemed like a daunting task, but one that he would have to over come to to continue his journey. If you followed Karl’s adventures though, you know that he not only successfully completed that trek, but he was also promptly arrested upon reaching Russia.

Now you can get a glimpse at what that amazing crossing was like, as Karl has posted the BBC Videos on his website. There are six of them in all, so it’ll take some time to watch, but it’s pretty interesting stuff. It makes you wonder if this guy is slightly more than crazy! πŸ˜‰

Thanks Gaddling!
