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.
