Not many sleeps now until the brave explorers on the Catlin Arctic Ice Survey who, dragging their sleds behind them, will be able to celebrate a special anniversary. April 20 will mark the 41st anniversary of the triumphant arrival of the first people to ski-doo to the North Pole.
Averaging about 6 km per day, it appears that our plucky sled pullers will still not be one third of their planned journey by the time of the anniversary.
