There's an impressive amount of content at PolarHusky.com. First of all, you can catch up with the group by listening to the brief daily reports (.WAV files) the members have filed since setting out. There are many more sound files, too, from howling dogs and wolves to interviews with locals and team members. There are also some fascinating QuickTime movies (including a few dozen QuickTimeVR 360-degree movies), an Inuit topics center, a field reference guide, a photography scrapbook, daily photos, and The Kennel, which features photos and profiles of all of the sled dogs, who are perhaps the real heroes of this adventure.

Word from the Webwise: Visitors can almost feel the sting of the below-zero temperatures encountered by the team as a snowy map paints on the site's opening screen, highlighting the current status and route of the adventurers, notes on their daily travails and weekly journal entries as they continue on a 3,000-mile, seven-month investigation of Arctic climate changes.
