skiing to the North Pole

North Pole Speed Record. This blows me away. This guy is trying to set a speed record for the trip to the North Pole, which he is doing unsupported (carrying all his own food and gear), on skis, and hopefully in 30 days. The standing record is 37 days, set in 2005 by a team using dog sleds and resupplying multiple times. (via kottke I think.)
