WORLD'S FIRST
WALK AROUND THE WORLD

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who made the world's first walk around the world?

On June 20 1970 Dave and John Kunst went for a stroll in Waseca, Minnesota, not to escape their wives, but to walk around the world.

On October 21 1972 in the foothills of the Hindu Kush Mountains the brothers were attacked by bandits and both were shot. John passed away and Dave spent 4 months recuperating before resuming his trek.

On October 05 1974 Dave Kunst, now with his brother Pete at his side, returned to Waseca after 20 million steps, 21 pairs of shoes and 14,450 miles.

Dave Kunst became the first person verified as walking around the world.

His amazing story can be read in full on his website.
