The Plaisted Polar Expedition Speedmaster
"I had never heard of this story until a couple of days ago...
Apparently, insurance salesman and amateur adventurer Ralph Plaisted and a few friends decided on a lark to see if they could get to the North Pole on snowmobiles, the first land attempt. They had one failed try then succeeded in 1968 after a 43 day effort."
