Greeting from Moscow!
I would like to welcome everyone to Mountain Madness Elbrus expedition 2005.
This will be our 4th climb of Elbrus this summer.
Team members are Susan Houby, Steve Cameron, Tony Optican, Billy Blann,
Guiherme Bertani and Bo Parfet.
Susan, Billy, Steve, and Tony have arrived on the 23rd and 24th. They went to
the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts yesterday afternoon. Guilherme or "Gill"
arrived late last night.
This morning we had a group meeting to talk about the climb and logistics for
the next 2 weeks. Today we will take a tour of Moscow including the famous Red
Square, the Kremlin and St. Basil Cathedral. After the tour we will conduct a
few more gear checks with the team members before dinner.
Our plans tomorrow are to fly to Mineralnye Vody and continue by private bus
to Terskol. We have a fun group and we are looking forward to the days ahead.
All the best,
