According to Google Translate the above title means 'one week to go'. Who knows what it actually says as I've been a little busy with life to brush up on my Russian... In any case, HOLY CRAP!!!! ONE WEEK til I fly out for Russia.
This is really happening and Loz and I could not be more excited for it. This last week is mostly organising all of our last minute supplies and spending hours on hold to Garmin to make sure our tracking devices are working - spoiler alert - they aren't...yet.
There's also a bunch of other fun challenges that face us before we even get there. Turns out the place we're going to is a little remote to say the least. To the point that I'm flying a grand total of 96 hours to get there and back with 6 different airlines, one of which seems to not actually have a website to be able to tell/confirm that I even have a valid ticket. Irrespective I WILL be in a Grizzly Bear, active volcano adventure paradise in just over a week.
For those of you who are just catching up and finding yourselves a little confused as to what is going on. The synopsis is this. 2 Aussie dudes travelling to a super remote region in Russia, surrounded by the largest Grizzly Bears in the world and we plan to hike and mountaineer our way up a bunch of active volcanoes and then fly very small paragliders off them. ANNNNNDDDD Go!
