    Paddled a canoe from Canada to South America, then up the Orinoco and back down the Amazon. Also kayaked the Northwest passage. Claims to have paddled the equivalent of three times around the world.

    He was a great man. I just read the Wikipedia article about him. Wow.

    20,000 km under his belt on the Guinness world record trip and then he sets off for another three year trip in a kayak! The world needs more boaters with his stamina.
