He began to assemble a team to recreate the journey, hoping to show that Peary could indeed have reached the Pole that quickly. Navigating treacherous pressure ridges, deadly channels of open water, bitterly cold temperatures, and travelling just as Peary did with dog teams and replica wooden sledges, Avery and his team were to cover the 413 nautical miles to the North Pole in just 36 days and 22 hours, setting a new world record and reaching the pole some four hours faster than Peary.
