Anyone thought of that before? It sounds like a plan to me. : )

Yeah i'm really keen on the idea. I hope i'll do it in about 4 years time. It'd be fun to do i think. Live off the land, steal some fruit and meet and greet all cultures across the globe. Never done anything like it really. Be fun having people as well. If you search google for 'earth walker' you'll find a site of a bloke who did do it (so it says).

I had a go at typing that in google. I've not heard about it before but supposidly this bloke has been walking for 8 years and trying to plant a million trees!
Also found another site which says the first person to officially walk around the world did so in the 70's, his brother started with him but got killed in Afganastan. the website says this is in the 1997 guiness book of world records.

Yeah i heard about both them stories. The one planting trees doesnt seem like he is doing it in one go though. Take a look at the map, i might be wrong but i dont think that the tree planting bloke has done it all in one go.
The other one however seems quite extraordinary. I'd like to do something similiar to him.
