On wheels, across Arctics. They had a short stop at the North Pole, about 3 weeks ago, and are about to touch down to Canada, in couple days. Almost 2 months on the 'road', so far. The plans are to drive all the way to Resolute Bay, another 700 miles or so.

The leader - Vasiliy Yelagin - was a quite a figure in climbing community in his time.

Here is the progress map, day by day: http://www.yemelya.ru/map2013.php?lnk=2013
