50 years ago Ralph made it

 :sledder:
50 years ago today Ralph Plaisted & crew were the first people to make it overland/ice to the North Pole. (Confirmed by the US Air Force) By snowmobile of course.  :beer2:
The National Geographic Society doesn't like to admit that their boy Robert Peary never actually made it to the Pole, missed it by 60 miles . :nana:


I have made the Pilgrimage to Ralph Plaisted's birthplace, Bruno MN on Hwy 23 between Duluth MN and the Twin Cities.
Here's to Ralph, the first Super Sledder.  :beer2:

Hindi sigurado kung paano tutulungan ako? Tungkol sa kaalaman na hinahanap ko, patuloy kong ibinabahagi ang impormasyong ito.
