A group of Russian cat paddlers
launched the same day we did. Ranger Dave did the talk to both our groups and would speak earnestly for about five minutes on some topic like rattlesnakes, hypothermia, or some other hazard or issue. The Russian who spoke the best English would then turn to his group and speak Russian for about 10 seconds after which they would all laugh and nod their heads, and then he'd turn back to Dave to continue.
This was more hilarious as it went on through the entire talk and by the end the rest of us who were aware of it had a really hard time keeping our serious faces on for Dave.
