Humor aside, those Siberians in "A glorious way to die" have all my respect. The rivers they run, knowing support is far, far away, using equipment they literally chopped out of the wilderness and dragged out of the dump is the definition of adventure.

If I wasn't an old fart I'd be figuring out how to hit Siberia for a summer.

Leader "?? Wait, you mean we carry our actual shit out? Our GOVNO?"
Ranger (consulting Russian/English dictionary) "Yes! Your GOVNO! you have to carry it all out! Show me how you'll do that!"
Leader; "Sasha! Need something to carry GOVNO!
Sasha; "?? Carry Govno? Where you want to carry Govno! Why you want to carry Govno?"
Leader; "This YOB say we gotta carry Govno! Find something!"
Sasha; ".........how bout we promise not to Govno in canyon? We use corks!"
Leader to ranger; "DA! We won't Govno in canyon, will save it for after trip!"
Ranger to Leader; "No! You gotta have a groover! A way to store your shit!
Leader; "Spaceba! Sasha! Find Goyno container now!"
Sasha; "AH! here is extra tractor tire; we Govno in tire!"
Leader to ranger; "See! We got Groover! Is tractor tire; we Govno in tire!"
Ranger (considering options); "OK. Now, where is your first aid kit?"
Leader; "First aid kit? You mean if someone gets hurt! Is here! (shows ranger a roll of duct tape and some wire).

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.
