Re: Really Far

That was the farthest I've ever been. It was very emotional.

Re: wow

Never say some day, pick a day and go for it. 'some day' never comes.

Incredible and fantastic adventure!

Chris and Laverna, thank you for the awesome and inspiring trip report. I have only been to St. Petersburg, Russia (after a 10 day Norway bike trip), but I only imagine the joys, challenges and excitement of travelling in such a remote region of Russia. Extraordinary and compelling landscape, mountains and towns. Quite the adventure.

Re: Incredible and fantastic adventure!

Thank-you for the reply, it was a very inspring adventure for me. I realize that I can handle tough and foreign areas. The next plan is Bolivia for my 50th birthday in November 2014. Bike trips are so satisfying because you use your own power! Hope you plan another bike adventure.

Rolling the dice

Did you attack Alaska from there? You will love Bolivia btw.

Re: Rolling the dice

We drove to Alaska in three days from our town in Alberta, Canada, but we didn't attack (LOL) any mountains yet.

great adventure

What an adventure - that area just made it into my "bucket" - and it is great that you mix in some of the cultural details as well. Thanks for sharing.

Re: great adventure

Thanks! it was a amazing trip and we still keep in touch with our Kamchatka friends! FYI, a tourist visa is only one month. We had to get a business visa so we could stay for 2 months. It is a lot of paper work. We can help with info when your 'bucket time' arives!

Thanks Great report

Well read your great travel report, thanks. I also want to climb Klyuchevskaya this summer with my wife. Can you give me some tips?
1.You've been there without guide, no problem to find route?
2.Is there any suitable place to biwak on the way to summit from 3200 camp? for exemple, around 4000m..
3.How was rockfalls on the way to summit?
4.i've heard the sand near summit was so loose that the feet sink down into it up to the knee and higher, it was worse walking than in deep was the crumbly scoria?
5.Should i bring GPS for bad weather?
6.was dangerous the ice crevasses on the crest of the glacier? permit necessary in Klyuchi?
8.How much money did you spent for this travel?
So many question...thanks a lot.
