  A Russian man comes to the assistance of the American  Mt. Everest 2006 Fantasy Ridge Expedition


 

Translation by Dr. Eugene Filstein: At the present time I have registered a company named Russian Oxygen, LTD in Nepal. The company’s main line of business is refilling oxygen tanks in Kathmandu and base camps using patented technology created by the company. This technology evolved from similar application in space technology. My companion was part of a related space industry that supplies oxygen with high reliability and that is why a space related logo is allowed to become a logo for the company.

I would like to make a few points to introduce myself and demonstrate my credentials.

My name is Valentine Bozhukov. I am a known mountain-climber in former USSR and Russia, earned the title "Snow Leopard" with a distinction #3. Famous Russian mountain-climbers Nick Cherny and Eugene Vinogradski were on my team.

Created oxygen equipment named "Quest" which was used by the Soviet team in expedition "Everest 82" and is still in use throughout the world with small modifications.

At 72 I am still an active mountain-climber, having several times reached 8300 meters alone. I know first hand how important it is for a mountain-climber to have light, reliable and high capacity oxygen equipment in a "zone of death".

At the present time I have created, patented and tested oxygen tank refilling equipment specially designed to work in mountains and basic camps. This equipment is capable of putting more oxygen in a tank than standard refilling equipment.

By 2006 my company, Russian Oxygen, LTD, will carry out the filling of oxygen tanks in Kathmandu and additional refilling at Everest base camp to 125% of standard volume at a price that is lower than standard.

Valentine Bozhukov has signed on as the oxygen sponsor of the Americans Mt Everest Fantasy Ridge 2006 expedition.

A cold weather, high altitude double boot for extreme conditions The Olympus Mons is the perfect choice for 8000-meter peaks. This super lightweight double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter. We used a super insulating lightweight PE outsole to keep the weight down and the TPU midsole is excellent for crampon compatibility and stability on steep terrain.
