Mt. Elbrus: Justman & Team Enjoy Rest Day

It is a rest day for Team 1 on Mt. Elbrus. I wish I had some really exciting things to report. However, rest days are filled with the continual search to beat the boredom of camp life. Activities like cards, dice, reading, people watching, drinking coffee, eating food, etc…are a few of the things we have partaken in so far today.

I’m not gonna jinx it but our summit day tomorrow may require a constant supply of sunscreen and cooling mist machines! It’s normal for team members to be a little nervous before summit day. But I’m telling ya…if I were to place a Las Vegas bet, it would be 100% to the top.

Wish us luck!
