Overland Jack di Big Sandy, Texas, all’anagrafe John Rose (1888-1962), a partire dal 1909 fino agli anni Trenta percorse 30'000 miglia a bordo di un carretto trainato da cinque capre. Perse le gambe in un incidente ferroviario. Sono giunte a noi numerose cartoline che lo ritraggono: "That buyers are plentiful is shown by the fact that he owns two farms and has a respectable bank account." (...) "He has proved that a man can make his way in the world without even a leg to stand on." (Popular science, 1922).

A large tombstone—with a goat’s head carved to the right and a revolver to the left—marks the resting place of John “Overland Jack” Rose in Chilton Cemetery in Big Sandy. Centered above his name, a small oval holds a picture of John, his wagon, and his goat team.

John, born in Virginia in 1888, fell beneath the wheels of a freight train and lost both of his legs at age nine. By means of hand-walking props that he made himself, he was able to remain ambulatory and complete his education. At age 20, he began traveling the country, driving a small wagon drawn by goats. He eventually settled in Big Sandy, built a home beside Everman Lake, and, refusing public aid or charity, supported himself and his goats by doing small repair jobs on watches, eyeglasses, guns, and antique clocks. Each year in early spring, “The Goat Man,” as townspeople affectionately called him, would set out from Big Sandy, making about 10 miles a day, stopping to sell postcards of himself for a dime, and doing repair work whenever he could find it. By the time automobiles made the roads too dangerous and ended his travels, he had toured 19 states and covered some 30,000 miles.

Overland Jack died in 1962. His personal property was auctioned, and his goat cart donated to Tyler’s Caldwell Zoo.

Agatha Christie è una della autrici più conosciute e lette a livello planetario. Nel 2013 è stato pubblicato un volume che raccoglie lettere e fotografie del giro del mondo che la Christie realizzò nel 1922. Il viaggio di un anno la portò in Sud Africa, Australia, Nuova Zelanda, Hawaii e Canada.

Unpublished for 90 years, Agatha Christie’s extensive and evocative letters and photographs from her year-long round-the-world trip to South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and America as part of the British trade mission for the famous 1924 Empire Exhibition.

In 1922 Agatha Christie set sail on a 10-month voyage around the British Empire with her husband as part of a trade mission to promote the forthcoming British Empire Exhibition. Leaving her two-year-old daughter behind with her sister, Agatha set sail at the end of January and did not return until December, but she kept up a detailed weekly correspondence with her mother, describing in detail the exotic places and people she encountered as the mission travelled through South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and Canada.

The extensive and previously unpublished letters are accompanied by hundreds of photos taken on her portable camera as well as some of the original letters, postcards, newspaper cuttings and memorabilia collected by Agatha on her trip.

Edited and introduced by Agatha Christie’s grandson, Mathew Prichard, this unique travelogue reveals a new side to Agatha Christie, demonstrating how her appetite for exotic plots and locations for her books began with this eye-opening trip, which took place just after only her second novel had been published (the first leg of the tour to South Africa is very clearly the inspiration for the book she wrote immediately afterwards, The Man in the Brown Suit). The letters are full of tales of seasickness and sunburn, motor trips and surf boarding, and encounters with welcoming locals and overbearing Colonials.

The Grand Tour is a book steeped in history, sure to fascinate anyone interested in the lost world of the 1920s. Coming from the pen of Britain’s biggest literary export and the world’s most widely translated author, it is also a fitting tribute to Agatha Christie and is sure to fascinate her legions of worldwide fans.

Christopher McCandless è stato un vagabondo americano che intraprese un viaggio verso l'Alaska in solitudine. Nelle terre selvagge del Parco nazionale di Denali morì a causa dell'inesperienza e dell'equipaggiamento poco adatto alle condizioni difficili del wilderness.

Jon Krakauer ha pubblicato nel 1997 un libro che ripercorre le vicende di Christopher, intitolato Nelle terre estreme, da cui è ispirato in film del 2007 Into the wild.

Ho avuto una vita felice e ringrazio il Signore. Addio e che Dio vi benedica!
Scritta lasciata da McCandless all'interno del Magic Bus.

C'è tanta gente infelice che tuttavia non prende l'iniziativa di cambiare la propria situazione perché è condizionata dalla sicurezza, dal conformismo, dal tradizionalismo, tutte cose che sembrano assicurare la pace dello spirito, ma in realtà per l'animo avventuroso di un uomo non esiste nulla di più devastante di un futuro certo.
Dalla lettera di McCandless scritta all'amico Ronald Franz

I fratelli Dave e John Kunst sono state le prima persone che si sono ufficialmente cimentate nel giro del mondo a piedi. L'avventura ha avuto inizio il 20 giugno 1970 da Waseca ed è finita il 5 ottobre 1974. A portare a termine il periplo di 14'500 miglia fu solo Dave: il fratello John fu colpito a morte da una banda di banditi in Afghanistan. L'altro fratello Pete accompagnò Dave dal punto in cui John fu ucciso.

Minnesotan's around-the-world walk remembered, 30 years later Tracy Swartz, Star Tribune, 06.11.2004

It took four years, 21 million steps and 22 pairs of leather shoes for Dave Kunst to complete his record-making and tragedy-marred 14,450-mile walk around the Earth in 1974. With $1,000 and camping gear strapped to a mule named Willie Makeit, Dave and John Kunst had left Waseca four years earlier to find adventure -- and a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. The brothers visited Princess Grace in Monaco, met Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl and became the first non-Asians to walk through the Khyber Pass since Alexander the Great. But in Afghanistan, one of the last countries in the trip, bandits shot and killed John. Four months later, Dave resumed the journey with another brother, Pete, and returned to Waseca in October 1974. Neither brother has spent much time in Minnesota in the past 30 years, but they are returning now for a celebration in Caledonia, in southeastern Minnesota, where they will unveil a sign at the northern edge of town honoring them for the around-the-world walk. It's part of Caledonia's 150th anniversary festivities, which run through the weekend and include a parade with Dave, 64, and Pete, 59, as grand marshals. They'll walk the route. "It's an education for the younger generation," said Irma Klug, a Kunst family friend and Caledonia resident for nearly 80 years. "They're very interested once they hear" about the Earth walk. Idea came at work Born and raised in Caledonia, Dave Kunst moved to Pensacola, Fla., after eighth grade. He returned to Minnesota shortly thereafter, living in Caledonia and Owatonna before moving to Waseca, a south-central city of about 8,500 residents. Married with three children, Kunst worked as a county surveyor while moonlighting as a projectionist for the Waseca theater. It was there in January 1970 that the idea for walking around the world was conceived. The moon landing the summer before had sparked Kunst's interest in adventure. Then 30, he talked about traveling to the tip of South America or driving across the Australian outback. But the theater owner challenged Kunst to do something no one else had ever done: Walk around the world. Kunst got his brother John, a recent University of Minnesota graduate, to go along. "John and I had never been anywhere," Kunst said in a telephone interview. "We were very naive on this. We spread a world map on the living room floor and tried to do a circle as much as possible." The plan was to walk through the United States, Europe and the Soviet Union. They set a date -- June 20, 1970 -- and spent the next six months at the library researching the countries. U.S. Sen. Hubert Humphrey gave them a letter of recommendation; the mayor of Waseca suggested that they carry a scroll to be signed by officials at every stop. Before they left, a Minneapolis woman suggested that the brothers bring a mule to carry their gear and to show they were not hitchhikers. "The scroll, Humphrey's letter, the mule -- that's what really made it for us," Dave Kunst said. So on June 20, 1970, they started their journey, walking from Waseca to New York and then flying to Portugal, where they were given a second mule. They walked through Spain, France and Italy, where they met Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl in a restaurant and told him of their plans. He laughed and petted the mule. Death in the foothills The Kunsts were curiosities throughout the trip, giving interviews about what they were doing and about their quest to raise money for UNICEF, the United Nations children's fund. In Afghanistan, a reporter erroneously wrote that the brothers were traveling with the donations. At the foothills of mountains near Kabul, bandits shot Dave and John. John died along the road and Dave, suffering from a bullet wound in his upper chest, survived by playing dead. He spent 20 days in a hospital in Afghanistan before flying back to Minnesota, more than 6,000 miles shy of his goal. After recuperating for 3 months, Dave Kunst decided to continue his trip. Pete accompanied him this time, and they flew to Afghanistan and began their journey from the spot where John was killed. Dave kept with him a note John wrote while they were struggling through Turkey: "It's like a play. With all the actors playing their parts right up to the tragic ending." More troubles ahead Dave and Pete were denied access to the Soviet Union and China so they flew from India to Australia, where they touched the Indian Ocean. "If we were to walk across the Soviet Union, we would only have walked the Northern Hemisphere," Dave Kunst said. "We actually really did circle the Earth." They hit a few snags in Australia. Officials there wouldn't allow the mule into their country, so they got their third mule. Pete had to go back to work, so his journey ended in Australia. And the new mule died. About to abandon his wagon, Dave met Jenni Samuel, a Perth schoolteacher who took the mule's place by towing the wagon from her car while he walked alongside. After walking across Australia at 30 miles a day and touching the Pacific Ocean, he flew to California and began walking toward Minnesota. He was in Iowa in 1974 when he told a Minneapolis Tribune reporter he "had no idea there were so many damn dumb foreigners in this world," that marriage was a bad idea and that he didn't think highly of Waseca. "I'm doing this for myself mainly. I was tired of Waseca, tired of my job, tired of a lot of little people who don't want to think, and tired of my wife," Kunst said in the interview. "The walk was a perfect way to change all that: I just walked out of town." He ended up divorcing his wife and marrying Samuel, who will be with him in Caledonia. Kunst said he doesn't regret the comments he made 30 years ago, even though some Waseca residents, including the mayor, didn't show up when he made it back to town. Reliving the walk About 100 people are expected this evening for the unveiling of the sign that reads: "Caledonia: Birthplace of the Earthwalkers David, Peter and John Kunst." The sign, which cost $6,500, will be covered by a tarp until then. About 40 residents and businesses helped pay for the sign, which is accompanied by a bronze plaque telling the brothers' story. Afterward, the surviving Kunst brothers will be signing the two books they wrote about the walk. They'll lead Saturday's parade, accompanied by yet another mule, while family members ride in a replica wagon. "I'm so thrilled and so honored and so excited," Dave Kunst said. After completing his trip in 1974, he moved to Australia for a year, then came back to Minnesota to be a projectionist in St. Paul before moving to California. Kunst toured schools there, telling children about his travels on four continents and in 13 countries. These days, Kunst said he walks about 2 miles each day with Samuel by their home near Newport Beach, Calif. This week they drove three days in a Mustang convertible to return to Minnesota. "The walking's over," Kunst said.

Nel 2011, dopo aver percorso 60 mila km in 3 continenti e 38 paesi in 14 mesi, conquistando un primato da Guinness per il più lungo percorso in quad (le moto a quattro ruote), due australiani hanno tagliato il traguardo a Sydney, in omaggio al compagno di squadra morto tragicamente a metà viaggio. Jamie Kenyon di 25 anni e Kristopher Teddy Davant di 27, noti come "Expedition Quad Squad", hanno attraversato sabato il ponte sulla baia sui loro mezzi, scortati dalla polizia e da centinaia di motociclisti, nella tappa finale di un viaggio iniziato a Istanbul.

I due ragazzi avevano quasi rinunciato dopo la morte del compagno, l’italiano Valerio De Simoni di 24 anni, la cui moto era stata travolta da un’auto fuori controllo in Malawi, nel marzo di quest’anno. L’investitore cercava di sfuggire all’inseguimento della polizia, per evitare di pagare una multa di divieto di sosta. Oltre a demolire il record precedente di 27.141 km, la Quad Squad ha usato l’avventura per sostenere la Ong Oxfam e ha raccolto l’equivalente di circa 40 mila euro per la lotta alla povertà. Dopo aver attraversato in trionfo il Sydney Harbour Bridge, Kenyon e Davant sono stati accolti da una folla di ammiratori in uno spiazzo davanti alla baia. La madre di Valerio, Vittoria Pasquini, li ha ringraziati per aver completato il viaggio in onore del figlio e ha annunciato la creazione di un’associazione in sua memoria, in aiuto dei giovani profughi dalle guerre in Afghanistan e in Africa (fonte: Ansa).

Lilian Leland viaggiò da sola per 60'000 miglia attorno al globo. Partita all'età di 25 anni, impiegò due anni per terminare il viaggio, almeno secondo quanto riportato nel volume pubblicato successivamente nel 1890. Ma le attestazioni oggettive sono poche. Come segnala Scatamacchia "molto probabilmente il viaggio non aveva mai avuto luogo e il libro era stato scritto da qualcuno che voleva sfruttare l'interesse per le donne che viaggiavano da sole, generato dal successo di Nellie Bly, al fine di vendere un testo che rispondeva alla curiosità del pubblico" (Scatamacchia, 2002, p. 372) .

The successful accomplishment of a journey of nearly sixty thousand miles, made by a young woman, traveling alone, is calculated to excite wonder and admiration ; and when the record of that journey is replete with original thought, the emanations of a bright intellect, it possesses a special interest.

Lilian Leland, at the age of twenty-five, without premeditation or preparation, started upon a voyage which, unexpectedly, became the commencement of a journey which carried her around the world, to many lands and on many seas, from Cape Horn to the North Cape and from the Rocky Mountains to the Himalayas ; but little less than sixty thousand miles in distance and covering a period of about two years.

She traveled without escort or protection except chance acquaintances met on the way.

No woman has ever traveled so far alone, with the single exception of Ida Pfeiffer who went twice around the world. Next to Lilian Leland is Isabella Bird, whose admirable books have earned for her a well deserved fame.

Peter Root e Mary Thompson sono partiti da Guernsey, nelle Channel Islands, nel 2011 e avevano pianificato il giro del mondo con le loro biciclette. Dopo aver percorso le strade d'Europa, del Medio Oriente e della Cina, sono stati investiti il 13 febbraio 2013 da un pickup in Thailandia, restando uccisi sul colpo. Il loro blog Two on Four Wheels, ancora attivo, raccoglie le ultime testimonianze della sfortunata coppia.

We are Mary Thompson and Peter Root. At 5.00pm on the 12th July 2011 we got the boat to France with loads of stuff and two bikes. We’ve created this website to document our adventures along the way.
Previous adventures include extensive travel around South America, where we ran art workshops at the Hogar Granje orphanage in Sucre, Bolivia, as well as intrepid sightseeing in many other countries including India, China and South Africa. In 2008 Mary and I cycled from Landsend to John O’Groats with our friend Julien. Have a look at Julien’s blog to find our more about our trip – landsend.wordpress.com

British cyclists on round-the-world trip killed in Thailand
Peter Root and Mary Thompson, from Guernsey, hit by truck in province east of Bangkok

A British couple's round-the-world cycling odyssey ended in tragedy when both of them were killed in a road accident in Thailand.

Peter Root and Mary Thompson, who had been chronicling their journey in a blog, died on Wednesday when they were hit by a truck in a province east of Bangkok.

The couple, both 34 and from Guernsey in the Channel Islands, had been cycling through Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and China since July 2011.

They met in art school and spent six years saving money and planning their journey, Peter's father Jerry Root said.

"They were both inspirational," Root said. "They didn't just talk about it, they did it. I couldn't be prouder of them."

He said they were both experienced cyclists who knew the rigours and risks of extended bicycle travel.

"They were camping wild, as they called it," he said. "What helps me is to think of how happy they were with each other. They were leading the life they wanted to. It was the happiest, the most fruitful of lives."

The couple had been posting photos and details of their trip on the website Two on Four Wheels. They also had many followers on Twitter and Facebook who were tracing their journey and vicariously enjoying their adventure, which included a trip through remote parts of Central Asia.

A video they posted from that part of the journey shows them camping in the desert, riding through hills, stopping to swim in rivers and lakes, and braving heavy snowstorms. They also cycle through tense situations as armed conflict breaks out during their journey through Tajikistan.

"They never talked about the trip as having a destination or a deadline or a time scale," said Ben Thompson, Mary's brother. "They didn't have firm plans, they had rough ideas. They just loved people. They were always dragging people to the campfire to share a story and a beer and some food."

After south-east Asia, the couple were planning to make their way to New Zealand for a brief respite, he said.

Thai police said that investigators found their bodies, their bicycles and their belongings scattered along a roadside, along with a pickup truck that crashed between some trees.

The truck driver, 25-year-old Worapong Sangkhawat, was seriously injured in the crash and faces charges of causing death by dangerous driving.
