Tough guy, I googled him and learned some more on the Swedish pages.

He rode from Sweden to Jerusalem at the age of 74.  :thumbsup:

A museum have a permanent exebition of him, I need to go there this spring.

That looks like a story Carlton Reid did a while back, also lifted by the Guardian.

I wonder if he was related to the late, great, Uncle Jack Eason?   Jack had a similar modus operandi.

There was something on Default Radio* yesterday about beards and pubs but I didn't hear it because I arrived at my daughter's place just before it started.

*This is whichever station the car radio is tuned to when I turn on the engine and CBA to change it to something else. I think it was Radio 4 yesterday.
