Travelled up the White Nile on a hovercraft,
His Transglobe Expedition journeyed around the world on its polar axis, using surface transport only,
Completed the Northwest Passage in an 18 ft open Boston Whaler,
Attempted to walk solo and unsupported to the North Pole,
Amputated his own frostbiten fingers,
Ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents (after a heart attack),
Has climbed The North Face of The Eiger and
At the age of 65, he climbed to the summit of Mount Everest!
