Traveling 6,000 miles by any means is a monumental feat in 1951, whether by car, airplane or even boat. What made Cecil Moore’s journey in 1951 record setting and unbelievable was his mode of transport. Dogsled.
So named Cecil “Mush” Moore completed his record-setting 6,000-mile dogsled run on April 4, 1951 in his home town of Lewiston Maine. He was not alone. Ten Siberian husky dogs pulled “Mush-Moore” through all imaginable types of weather, fighting off the elements and even an attack by wolves.
