Travels from



First to reach the North Pole and return
unresupplied (w/ Mikhail Malakhov)

"No north, no south, no east, no west... and there's only the cold for company... but you got yourself into this and nobody else is going to get you out... you've got enough supplies for eighty days... what are you waiting for?... Start Walking."

In 1995 Richard Weber and Mikhail Malakhov became the first verified expedition to walk to the North Pole and back unassisted and unresupplied. Historian Robert Bryce wrote of the expedition, "The first and as yet only expedition verified to have ever reached the North Pole and returned unresupplied was that of Richard Weber and Mikhail Malakhov this incredible physical feat, perhaps the greatest in the history of exploration..." . The 1995 Weber Malakhov Expedition was a tremendous test of endurance, perseverance, patience and belief in oneself and ones capabilities. The presentation combines this story with great slides and stirring video. There is a close correlation between the elements that made the expedition successful and ordinary and business life.
