Ed Stafford Has Walked the Amazon!

A few hours ago, adventurer Ed Stafford finished his quest to walk the entire length of the Amazon River, an incredible journey that has never before been done on foot. Ed started walking 28 months ago, on April 2, 2008.  I wrote a post about him earlier this year.

Amazing accomplishment! High fives, Ed and Cho. I hope both of you can get about a month’s sleep after the last push to finish the journey.

Update, August 10: Ed’s last blog entry was successfully updated overnight, so here’s one of the last pictures from the trip:
