On a perfect day in March, 2009, with the temperature hovering near -40 degrees Fahrenheit, John
Huston and Tyler Fish stepped off the North American continent and onto the frozen, jumbled surface of
the Arctic Ocean. The two seasoned adventurers had their sights set on one goal: to travel under their
own power to the North Pole without resupply. If they succeeded, they’d be the first Americans to do
so. Join Tyler Fish as he shares with us their nearly two month and 500 mile trek hauling 300-pound
sleds that contained everything they needed to survive. Their book, Forward: The First American
Unsupported Expedition to the North Pole will also be available
