I was browsing around the Internet and came across the website of Steve Fosset. Obviously I'd heard of him before, but I had no idea of the extent of his extreme accomplishments. The accomplishments he lists on the Challenges page are amazing: around the world solo ballooning records, solo airplane flight records, solo sailing records, solo glider records, plus swimming the English Channel, completing the Hawaii Ironman, Itarod, etc.


He has definitely has earned the right to describe himself (as he does on his website) "among the world's greatest adventurers". Last March he set a record for the first solo nonstop around the world flight. or his next challenge, he he will attempt to recreate the "1919 TransAtlantic flight from St John's, Newfoundland in Canada to Clifden, Co, Galway, Ireland achieved by British flyers John W. Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown". Above and to the right are pictures of the around the world flight and his 2004 round the world sail. I was very impressed by his accomplishments. He is definitely someone who lives life at full throttle. If you had his kind of resources you could do the same...right?

This guy is amazing

It's pretty amazing when you can run a triathlon, sail a yacht across the ocean and fly a jet airplane.
