Climbing the highest mountains, rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, coming face-to-face with death and even losing several fingers to pursue his life's mission - STEP OUT, SHOVE OFF! Laval St. Germain shares with us what it is like to pursue adventure in a myriad of different ways and the obstacles that life (and Mother Nature) has in store during that process.
In this episode you will learn from an "expert at turning
dreams into goals into reality, Laval St.Germain knows what it
takes to unzip the tent door and step out from high camp on Everest
for a cold, gasping, trip to the top or to shove off the dock to
row alone across the North Atlantic Ocean.
Laval is the only Canadian to have climbed Mount Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, the only person to have climbed and skied Iraq's highest peak, and the holder of the fastest ever crossing of the North Atlantic Ocean by solo ocean row boat from mainland North America to mainland Europe.
Laval has climbed the highest peak on 6 of the earth's 7 continents, and the highest peaks of more than a dozen nations. Uniquely blending extreme high risk outdoor adventure with the deliberate and strict adherence to procedures, checklists and risk management inherent in an airline pilot has kept Laval alive.
Laval is an acclaimed keynote speaker, with emotional and striking stories from up there above the clouds and out there beyond the ocean horizon."
