Shout out to my old friend Greg Kolodziejzyk.
He made a fortune in the early days of the internet selling fonts to Adobe. Went on to more successful business ventures.
But these days Greg’s passion is extreme adventure. He wants “To conquer the world by human power.”

You’ll see he’s still in the testing phase of the home-made craft. Greg’s trip is scheduled to start in December this year, and is expected to take around 40 days.

Good luck buddy!
