British adventurer Mark Wood said he was surprised to find a wedding taking place when he reached the North Pole on Wednesday. Wood "crashed" the wedding of Norweigan explorer Børge Ousland, who invited Wood to join the festivities and have a celebratory drink. Ousland, whose achievements include the first unassisted solo crossing of Antarctica in 1997 and the first wintertime trek to the North Pole with Mike Horn in 2006, flew in by helicopter with about 20 people for the ceremony.
