Josh Galt recently posted an Article suggesting that Mike Horn may well be the Greatest Adventurer whom has ever lived. A quick look at his amazing accomplishments certainly seem to back up the assertion.
Recently, some video-clips were uploaded onto YouTube showing his solo descent of the Amazon River from source to sea in the 1990’s. It is, to my knowledge, the first time that this footage has been made available publicly.
In fact, it was upon first reading about this expedition that I resolved to start Riverboarding / Hydrospeeding, and a year or two later I made my first board. From there my passion for running rivers in this way has grown and, by implication, Mike Horn has had a significant impact on whom I have become almost a decade later.
