RIP a great explorer who had some cryptid encounters on his voyages. A great man who was brave and not afraid to do something different. His spirit will live on I am sure in modern explorers.

Apologies everyone if this was misleading.My fault for not telling C what I was aiming for. He did die in 2002 . The idea was to look at famous people who have had cryptid sightings. Mea culpa !
