Most of us tense up at the thought of a boring, cramped six-hour cross-country flight. Try on a five-month, 3,100 walk for size! Ben Davis walked from Los Angeles to Boston and he'll swear it changed his life.

For Ben, this cross-country mega-challenge meant starting with only Charles the Stroller, his gear and a growing fanbase as he trekked across cities, mountains, plains, and deserts. He's still recovering from the long trip but he's already started writing an inspiring new book!

Start from the beginning and re-live Ben's epic, awesome, and often bizarre quest.

Close Call During Leap Of Faith Literally Takes Jumper 'Over The Rainbow'

The Wailua Falls in Hawaii are a landmark of legend, where Native Hawaiians would allegedly jump to prove their bravery. We're sure this jaw-dropping 173-foot waterfall jump seemed better in novice adventurer Shiloh Shahan's head, because his insane "leap of faith" goes wrong in every possible way! Shiloh's flailing arms and legs are the first red flag. Once he hits the water agonizing seconds later, we lose sight of the 21-year-old until his horrified friend far above sights Shiloh's unconscious body floating to the surface. Although a family of traumatized tourists was miraculously on hand to resuscitate him, Shiloh the unshaken (and, dare we say, foolish) adventurer has publically promised to try the jump again.

We all tell ourselves our friends have our back... and then stuff like this happens! An outdoor Aussie adventure at Nolan's Brook was a thrilling chance for this Land Rover junkie to show off his "waterproof" ride... until his wheels get stuck mid-stream!

And now for your daily dose of "huh?" Paraglider Hasan Kaval has basically created a living room in the sky by fastening a couch, a TV and even a lamp to his parachute. Based on the guy's calm demeanor, you'd never guess he was soaring hundreds of feet up in the air — but then again, the level of chill required to kick back on a flying couch without a harness in the first place is probably pretty high.
