A young Arctic fox has walked across the ice from Norway's Svalbard islands to northern Canada in an epic journey, covering 2,176 miles in 76 days. "The fox's journey has left scientists speechless," according to Greenland's Sermitsiaq newspaper. Researchers at Norway's Polar Institute fitted the young female with a GPS tracking device and freed her into the wild in late March last year on the east coast of Spitsbergen, the Svalbard archipelago's main island.

Ok I was being facetious but the fox was shaved bare nekked while walking for thousands of miles on ice?? Nekked?

Ok that is just crazy. No, I couldn't do that. I could not walk 2,100 miles on ice bare assed nekked. But, with the proper supplies, caches prepositioned at selected locations and the proper clothing and walking (theoretically) at 3 miles an hour walking 12 hours a day (36 miles a day) I could cover that distance in 58.3333333333 days.

Except, I wouldn't because I have a brain. My brain could find a much easier way to cross that distance. Theoretically.

275 miles per day, anyone that's ever walked in the snow knows that is a very strong animal.
