WEST FARGO, N.D. -- A former combat medic and North Dakota State University artist marched 20 miles in Fargo and West Fargo with a military rucksack sculpted in ice strapped to his back.

It was all part of a grand project created by Joshua Zeis called "Project Unpack: Telling Stories, Creating Community."

The piece represents the burden he carries from his experiences, including surviving a bomb attack. But the burden slowly melts away. It also served a dual purpose on his trek.

"I didn't have water for several miles so I had to eat it, I had to eat my pack," Zeis said.

He says the trail he walked included the same points he traveled the day he learned he was being deployed.
