Bushby's round-the-world trek grind to a halt

On the 10th anniversary of the start of his round the world walk, British adventurer Karl Bushby’s expedition is on hold.  Bushby’s father and manger Kieth, in England, says progress has ground to a halt.  He says Karl is trying to find sponsors and negotiate a return to the remote Chukotka region of Russia, where he left off walking last spring.  Bushby’s dad says soured economic conditions and relations with Russia have complicated the situation.
