Hi everyone this is Scott Patch from Pyatigorsk, Russia with a dispatch for
the Elbrus 2013 expedition. All members have made it and are in high spirits
and great health, despite the rigors of travel, time changes, misplaced
baggage and cancelled flights. We are ready to leave Pyatigorsk and head for
Cheget Russia which sits at 2300 meters ( 7,500 feet) at the base of Elbrus.
It's about a 4 hour drive today where we will sit back and enjoy the company
of our new friends.
Last night we got out an enjoyed the town of Pyatigorsk and had an excellent
dinner at an outdoor restaurant. It was a true Russian experience with many
laughs from our team and the restaurant staff.
