If you can walk 3000 miles, Karl Bushby could walk 36,000 more

Karl Bushby is not an ordinary hiker..

He is an ex-British paratrooper..he's an adventurer. 
He's an explorer. That is everything his Twitter description says -- but follow him for a few minutes and you'll see he is much, much more than just those brief words.


Karl Bushby began walking at age 29--that was in 1998. His hike began in Chile, and as his own website describes, he only had $300 in his pocket.. He continued his trek to North America.. he also completed the first ever recording crossing on foot of the Bering Strait. It was then on to Siberia.. And Asia. And Europe.

20,000 miles strong so far-- and his goal for the 15-stretch is 36,000.

He's almost there..At least more than halfway home, in a sense..

As all things go in modern times, social media is the way to find information about Bushby.. He is followed by almost 2,000 people at this time on Twitter.. he is updating in real time--an amazing thing if you compare his first journey in 1998 to now. Just a little over a decade later, there is so much that has changed in the world--and for Bushby, who can now stay in contact with the world even though he is meeting just one person at a time..

Bushby's website says he has met lots of people--and stated "99.9%" of them are good.

At this point in the walk, Karl Bushby is making a 3,000 mile hike from Los Angeles to the Russian embassy in Washington D.C. He has a plan--and a hope--to get a visa and be permitted to complete the longest continuous walk in modern history..

The HORROR REPORT was alerted to this journey by a faithful reader--hat tip to JoyL for alerting me to something I wish I would have been following prior to this..

This week, Las Vegas WEEKLY featured a good write-up about Bushby's journey, reporting that he has defied odds and had an 'unbroken path that would make history'.. Just today, MOTHER NATURE NETWORK repotrted on his walk..


There is something very amazing about this man's voyage..

It began last century.
Since then we have sped up in our lives ..
We zoom through our earthly vessel like a fireball in the sky.
But not Bushby.. He takes his time.
He walk.
He discovers.
He takes the time to see his surroundings--become salt of the earth and at the same time depend on it..

It's very poetic what he is doing..

Your attention to his passage on earth is truly recommended.

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
