  1. Wow, that’s amazing. Koreans surprise me all the time. If an American accomplished that, it would’ve been on the national news. Oddly, I didn’t even see it on BBC and they are a bit better when it comes to international news.

  2. Grand Slam is right! Hope there is a book in the works about this enduring adventure. Any other good links that go into more detail about this?!
