Announcement – 2011 Arctic Expedition

This year Joe and the team will set out on a 3 ½ month, unsupported, solo dog sledding expedition in Arctic Alaska. The expedition is a tribute to Alaska’s new official State dog, the Alaskan Malamute.

School kids from Polaris K-12 in Anchorage proposed House Bill 14, which would designate the malamute as our state dog. After three years of hard work and in depth research to help them make their case to the legislature, the kids and their teachers met with success and Governor Sean Parnell signed the bill into law.

The 2011 Arctic Expedition is dedicated to all the kids who worked on that project. It’s the best way we know how to show our appreciation to these individuals for their hard work in making it possible and also to show them that the Alaskan malamute continues to thrive in the arctic in modern times.
