At one point last week, I woke up with my heart racing. 'Foot steps,' I thought. 'I hear polar bear foot steps.' Instinctively, I reached out to unzip the tent door and grab the shot gun but stopped short when I realized I wasn't on the Arctic Ocean, there was no shot gun lying in my vestibule and what...

After two and a half days of intensive systems training and some short ski trips, we're out in the trail now.

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.
