I nominate Matthew Hanson to the Trailblazer Honor Roll because he had eighteen years of Arctic experience. He was the sleigh driver who broke the trails. He handpicked the dogs for their strength and endurance so that they could complete the job of breaking a trail. He is remembered as a man of extraordinary skill and great determination.
