Thats crazy

I'm not sure what the most surprising thing about this story is...

..that two guys got arrested for walking across the Bering Strait into Russia, or that a guy has been trying to be the first to walk around the world and has been walking for the past 8 YEARS.

American, Briton detained in Russia after crossing frozen Bering Strait by foot

MOSCOW An American and a British citizen are in custody after walking from Alaska to Russia.
A border guard official tells Russian T-V the men were arrested in Chukotka (chah-KAWT'-kah) province for not registering with authorities. All visitors are required to register with police within three days of arriving in Russia.The British adventurer, Karl Bushby, writes on his Web site that he and Dimitry Kieffer, from Anchorage, reached Russia Friday. It took them 15 days to walk the 56 miles from Alaska to Russian territory.Bushby's father in England says the travelers "fully expected a problem" because they were walking across the Bering Strait and couldn't enter Russia normally.Bushby's Web site says he wants to be the first person to walk all the way around the world. He's logged 17-thousand miles since starting the journey in 1998.
