Slightly disappointed that this isn't about unicycling Wobblies but this is still very cool.

I imagine their conversation on padded undergarments would be quite insightful.

Around 27:30 I learned that solo sailing around the world is for introverts and solo unicycling around the world is for extroverts.

This is great, thanks for posting! Ed Pratt's effort here to trace probably the only other person who could truly understand his trip really paid off; it's an entertaining interview if you've followed his RTW adventure.

That's so great! Totally fascinating and they seem like a great couple of guys.
