    It's odd that the clip showed him with a kayak.

    I thought that most people did it in kayaks? "Sir Steve, who only took up canoeing last year, said the furthest he had paddled before was 55 miles (88km)." from http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-17649561

    If anyone has the right to be tired, he has! Legend!

    What happened to the bit about him asking to be shot if he ever went near a boat again?
