Mt. Elbrus: JJ Justman Calls in from the Garabashi Hut

Hello RMI followers. This is JJ Justman with the first Mount Elbrus team.  Today was an exciting day as we left the tiny town of Azau.  After two tram rides, we arrived at the Garabashi Hut, also known as “The Barrels.”  We are currently at 12,000 feet. The team is enjoying the thin air.  We would like to convince you that we are roughing it.  However, life up here has some pretty darn nice creature comforts: French-pressed coffee and a full delicatessen, some comfy beds to name a few.  It is important to relax and ease into the altitude. That’s exactly what we need to do.  We’re playing card games and listening to electronic dance music, it’s thumping in the background as I speak.  I’m actually, myself, gonna currently watch culinary video podcast to get some new ideas for my mountain cuisine.  We want to say hello to all the friends and family following along.  The team is doing just fantastic, having a lot of fun.  We will keep on informing you of how we’re doing up here, but life is pretty darn nice. Take care for now.
