The completion of an endurance hike across the entire Amazon basis in 859 days by modern day explorer Ed Stafford, a 34-year old former British Army captain, is a story that received little fanfare in the media this week. The journey came to an end as he stepped into the Atlantic Ocean in Brazil last Monday. Ed Stafford, after 50,000 mosquito bites and 2 ½ years of hiking with periodic blog posts at http://www.walkingtheamazon.com/, has become the first man known to have walked the entire length of the Amazon.
Check out the adventure with extensive information on Ed Stafford’s websites.
Can you imagine?
Thankfully Ed was also a travel blogger!
