An Epic Dog Sledding trip across Greenland, one of very few attempts and the race against “The Perfect Storm”. Mike O’Shea joined a team on a rarely attempted trip to cross one of the largest Ice-Caps in the World and his epic story outlines the dynamics of working with a dog team, the need for thorough preparation and an undetermined grit & resolve when Mother Earth has different plans than yours!
