Chicago Tribune - Chicago man and partner trek to North Pole, 4/26/2009

A Chicago man and his traveling partner are believed to be the first Americans to get to the North Pole entirely unsupported and self-powered.

John Huston of Chicago and Tyler Fish of Ely, Minn., arrived at the North Pole Saturday.

He says the men skied, snowshoed and even swam over 54 days. They left March 2 from Canada's Ellesmere Island.
