Mt. Elbrus: JJ Justman & Team Summit!

Elevation: 18,510'

I don’t mean to brag. I don’t mean to boast. I like jelly on my breakfast toast and I also like every team member on the summit of Mt. Elbrus, which is where we are right now and I’ll tell you what, the team did a fantastic job today. We have beautiful weather. About a 15 mph wind on top to keep us cool. But I’ll tell you what the team hung in there, it was a long day climbing and everyone has their feet on the summit, up here on Europe’s highest mountain, Mt. Elbrus. Thank you guys so much for following along and we will touch base with you when we get down. We still have a little bit of work to do so we’re drinking some water, eating a little snack, and take some photos, and then we’re gonna do the really kind of the hardest part to be honest, which is getting down but everyone is doing fantastic. We’ll touch base with all of you later. Ciao from Russia.

Way to go JJ, Elsie, Charlotte and the rest of the team!!!!  Glad to hear from you, and we wish we could share the beautiful view up there.  We have only one question.  Your blog said you were drinking water on the summit.  What did Charlotte use to carry her water after she dropped the water bottle from the chairlift?
