The First Unsupported, Unassisted American Expedition to the North Pole
Chicago Public Radio - Chicagoan Treks to the North Pole, 5/12/2009
On April 25, Chicagoan John Huston and his expedition partner Tyler Fish became the first Americans to complete an unsupported ski trek to the North Pole. Every night, they used a satellite phone to leave voice mail updates about their progress. Huston just returned and came into our studio to talk about the trip.
