Adventurer Repeats Genghis Khan's Feat

Genghis Khan burned and pillaged his way across Eurasia 800 years ago. Adventurer Tim Cope has just completed that same journey, minus the plunder and burning cities. Cope did have plenty of adventures. He revived a nearly frozen dog with a sauna and a diet of vodka and eggs. He fended off wolves with firecrackers. And last weekend, he arrived at the Danube River – 6,200 miles from where he began in Mongolia.
