This guy is attempting to walk across Norway in a straight line.

Sometimes, you get so far down the YouTube rabbit hole that you end up finding videos like this one, where a British man, Tom Davies, attempts to cross Norway in a straight line. And, you don’t regret a single second of it.

For context, if you’re confused as hell: Tom has been making Geoguessr videos (a popular geography game online) for a few years now. Back in 2019, he took things to a new level by trying to cross Wales in a straight line – in real life.

The Wales mission wasn’t a success (technically), as he didn’t finish the line all in one go.

But, as the saying goes: If at first, you don’t succeed, attempt to cross Norway – one of the world’s most notoriously mountainous countries – in a straight line.

Tom’s only posted the first episode of his Norway mission so far, which you can check out here. If you like watching people do crazy things, it’s worth a watch.
