I feel very inadequate right now. Excellent trip report.

When I saw that you guys were camping my first thought was the book The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival. So when the Bear pics popped up I realized I wasn't too far off.

Incredible. Thank you so much for sharing. Like Tex said, the culture aspect adds so much to the story.

Very awesome.

:wink: Well damn, I knew I had some good photos but did not expect people to be this stoked about it; Thanks a million for the kinds words.

When you get to ride new amazing places you gotta share it with everyone, really, I just want other people to get motivated to go check this place out...its soo good!

Regarding the Culture aspect; I am glad people like that; for some people it could be overwhelming (they just want to see turns and such) but its an expression of how I perceive the world and how I approach snowbaording; as a bridge and a vehichle for experiencing the diversity and wonders of our planet, culturally, ecologically, historically, politically, and physically, and vice versa; these things are all vehichles by which we can approach our snowboarding....

ok,,enough of the geeky philosophical stuff...and on to individual comments;

Imitation Funk; The Tiger is an amazing, wonderful book that everyone should read! Good on you. Actually I looked into flying from Kamchatka to the Amur region to go find some Tigers but it was too complicated; someday I will go to the "Boreal Jungle", I dont think you can shred there though.

Fustercluck; Theshort answer is, I live recklesslessy with my money and time because it makes me much happier than being a conservative, timid drone. In the long run I might regret it but for now carpe diem is the only way I go. But would not this be the oppossite of a robot? A robot to me would be someone who just reserves themselves to living in mediocrity and the status quo. I am trying to live as a wild, free, concious, feral human, in all of my humaness.

Jbay; good to know man! Did you check out the refined version of Subsistence Strategy’s that ended up in Frequency: A Snowboarder’s Journal this year? If my freezer is getting low this winter then another Brooks Range split hunting mission will be in order. This time I won’t try it alone so if anybody wants to step up!

Regarding the 20 miles; we were trying to figure out how far we had to go on a map with kilometers, we calculated around 18-20 miles. It was very far and I was really worried about it. But it was mostly flat ground on hard snow. It was long, but easier than walking 20 miles with a big pack. Very beautiful tour as far as ambiance goes as well.

Stoudema; Africa! Had you believing it eh? I really like that picture. It just looks like what you think a peak rising out of the African Savannah would look like, if there was one with snow. I hear that the small country of Lesotho might have something….

Lastly, I should give some photo credits to Anmei Goldsmith and Beau Fredlund, who we were lucky to connect with for a few turns.

How cool to see the mountains of Kamchatka up close like that; for years I've wondered what that landscape and its mountains look like. Thanks so much for taking us along on the adventure; by far my favorite trip report.

Question: Which city did you fly into?
