Thank you very much for your very fine presentation at our Convocation. I have always believed that the aim of life is to not only experience all that you can, but to become the type of person who inspires others to experience all they can. If I am right, then you can take pride in being a five star success. Your presentation is one of the very best I have heard at our school in the past twenty years. --- Southern Utah University

A 60-year old Ph.D. in Chemistry who spends his time writing Earth Science textbooks and embarking on amazing adventures, Jon Turk is not your ordinary grandfather. Jon has climbed previously unnamed rock walls and high peaks, mountain biked across the Mongolian Gobi, was one of two mushers to travel along the South and East coasts of Baffin Island, and he kayaked around Cape Horn and across the Pacific Ocean (from Japan to Alaska). Jon shares with his audience how he uses fear to face obstacles in life and on his journeys and how managing your own fear, not overcoming it, can help you to learn and achieve what others deem impossible.
