First (known) man to walk down the Amazon

Ed Stafford.

Update: Since we posted this, Ed has been voted the National Geographic Adventurer of the Year.

Congratulations to Ed Stafford who just finished his epic 2-year walk down the Amazon River. Which Sir Ranulph Fiennes says is “in the top league of expeditions past and present.” I don’t mean to diminish his trip by saying he is the first KNOWN man to walk down the Amazon, but it just seems a little more respectful to all the prehistoric people that must have explored this region. I wonder if they thought of it as an adventure? Probably Ed is the only one to have ever walked the full length.
