TED talk:Ben Saunders: Three things to know before you ski to the North Pole

Ben Saunders tell his tale of how he conquered a solo ski trip to the north. The first man to ever do that and one of 4 to ever reach the pole on skis.

His first attempt to reach the pole was with a partner in 2001, but it went horribly wrong. Polar bears, frostbite and numerous other problems unfortunatley cut this expedition short. But 3 years later he attemped it once again, and finally accomplished it.

Alone and with a new strategy, Saunders runs on a 6000 calorie a day regiment throughout his 3 month trek to the Pole.
