A REMARKABLE MAN: Montrealer Theodore Frederic Fairhurst, who turns 70 in April, has had several careers as a fine artist, entrepreneur, high-altitude mountain climber and a public speaker. He has climbed the Seven Summits, including Mount Everest and recently found himself in a jungle in Papua New Guinea. There he got separated from his teammates, finding himself all alone. As night fell and without food, sleeping bag or tent, he had to huddle alone in the pouring rain and listen all night to the sounds and calls of different animals. His new challenge at 70 is to climb the highest volcano on all seven continents (Volcanic Seven Summits) and hopefully poke all generations of people to take on their own goals and get out into Nature.
