Dimitri arrives in Russia!
Thursday April 10, 2008 - 64.7500° N, 177.4833° E
Dimitri arrived in Russia. We received a text from him at 10pm on the 8th of April. He conveyed that he had made it through customs and is looking at complications getting to Egvekinot, with in Russia, to resume his expedition. The flight to Egvekinot, on April 22nd , does not have seats and booking a private "taxi" vezdehod would cost $3,200.00 US.
So, Dimitri is working with all of these contacts to find an alternative solution such as getting on a "cargo" wezdehod for a much more reasonable cost.
This is all the information we have at this time.
