Perserverance Fulfilling a Dream

This guy set himself a real challenge and perservered for 25 years to achieve it. Pretty cool!

Re: Perserverance Fulfilling a Dream

Does this mean the rest of us should quit whining and just get on with it? I hope he spends many a pleasant hour on his boat. Lord knows he has earned it.

Re: Perserverance Fulfilling a Dream

There was a whole thread on this a month or two back with this same report.
Pity he crushed his foot or something so I guess you could say he's scarred for life!
