On February 22, departed a great traveler and kayaker who sailed three times across The Atlantic rowing alone in a kayak. He was a volcano of energy. With his accomplishments borders of the impossible were shifted. Olo died in Tanzania while conquering Africa’s highest peak, Kilimanjaro fulfilling another travel dream. We extend our deep sympathy to Olek’s Family.
