Departure: July 2

spires

9:01 AM in Boston. We (Seth and Ben) will be heading to the airport in a little under an hour. So far the list of things we will have to find along the way is not too long: fish hooks, Russian outlet adapters, a wristwatch.

We weighed our bags this morning. We have 38 pounds of nuts and ClifBars, 30 pounds of rock hammers, and 2 life jackets. Plus a few other things.

It’s hard not to be excited at this moment… in a few days (if all goes well) we will be on the Kotuy river, where we took the above picture last year. Here’s the current weather in Khatanga, our base town in Siberia: http://www.weathercity.com/ru/khatanga/ … not so bad at the moment.
