Ocean Adventurer Makes the Final Crossing: John Fairfax shot up a scout campsite, ran away from home to the Amazon, lived as a jaguar and ocelot trapper, tried to commit suicide by jaguar, spent three years as a pirate, rowed alone across the Atlantic Ocean, rowed with a girlfriend across the Pacific Ocean, was thought lost as sea and made a living as a baccarat player.
