One year ago today, my good friend and expedition partner, Ryan Waters and I boarded a Kenn Borek twin otter ski plane and flew north the length of Ellesmere Island eventually landing at Cape Discovery, the northernmost point of land in North America. It's hard to put into words all the thoughts that...

I realized the other day that I spend nearly as much time following other expeditions and adventures as I spend on my own. Every time I turn on my computer, it seems, there is a story about some incredible adventure to a place that I never even knew existed. Or in the case of my good friend and fellow...

At one point last week, I woke up with my heart racing. 'Foot steps,' I thought. 'I hear polar bear foot steps.'

In 2012, I took a small film crew, a photographer, my web developer and good friend Tim, to Churchill, Manitoba to train and prepare for a bicycle expedition in Antarctica. While I was out on my bike, Josiah captured these dog sledding scenes. In the fall of 1994, I was living in a remote cabin in northern Minnesota and working odd jobs. I stopped in a local lodge looking for work and was hired as a dog musher on the spot. At the time, I had never even seen a sled dog let alone driven an entire team of them. I dropped everything I was doing, drove 10 hours back to my parent’s home and grabbed as many base layers as I could find. For good measure, I rented the Disney movie Iron Will to glean a few pointers before my job started. For 10 years, I traveled roughly 10,000 miles by dog team across much of northern North America on various training runs, trips, expeditions and races. Seeing this video reminds me how much I love the sport of dog sledding and how much I enjoy traveling with sled dogs.
