Aleksander Doba, famous for crossing the Atlantic three times by kayak, died at the summit of Mt. Killamajaro a couple months ago. This must've slid under many people's radar because I had not heard it until now.

He first paddled at age thirty-four. Proof its never too late to be a true master of something. Say something nice about him.

must have been a heart attack or something. Kilamanjaro is not technical.

I wonder if they just pushed him off the slope. I hear they do that just so people don't ogle at the bodies.

You're thinking of Everest. Kilimanjaro is mostly a walk up, a glorified hike realy.

The account I read was that he got to the summit, sat down and closed his eyes like it was his intention all along.
>>
>>2069501
He probably shit himself mid stroke
>>
What kind of kayak did he use to cross Atlantic? And how long did it take

Where did he sleep and poop
>>
Sounds like he used his time on earth better than most people
>>
>>2068733
Damn I wish i could go like that

>>2069533
If you have an ocean kayak and a paddle float, you can put the float on your paddle and wedge the other end of the paddle under your deck lines behind the cockpit. Then you can get out of the cockpit and shit off teh side of the kayak without flipping in, (assuming conditions are relatively calm.
