Vi har alla våra hobbyer. Pseudonymen Kurt J. Mac från Chicago vill nå Far Lands i Minecraft, när spelet buggar ur. Han har traskat sedan den 28 mars 2011 och dokumenterat det hela i en Youtube-kanal med nästan 325 000 prenumeranter.

Mac’s preparations for the hike were basic. He gathered the materials to craft a sword, for protection, and a pickax, for digging rudimentary shelters to hide from the game’s lethal nocturnal terrors. “Most important, I brought a compass,” he said. “The compass always points toward the original spawn point. That way, I would know that, as long as I walk in the direction opposite the needle’s point, I am headed in the right direction.”

Så låter det i New Yorkers artikel om Macs projekt, klart läsvärt.
