hiking in the mountains
I made a long-awaited and planned training trip to Mount Chimghan with a group of moral support .
This is our Everest Tashkent ( + 3300 m above sea level ) . Snow lies on the top of almost all summer .
My goal was simple - to reach the nearest snow and test their physical possible . The goal is achieved in full. Hike lasted 5.5 hours with short smoke breaks instead scheduled for 4 hours . The result :
- Pitched " three sheets " both new shoe .
- Fell 30 times at least .
- Broke into the blood toes , knees and elbows (see photo " the goal is achieved ").
BUT content and happy !
For I have very much alive and moderately HEALTHY !
AND ALL I HAVE YET TO COME ( if I live ).
My current idol - is John Silver from Treasure Island Stevenson. Wooden leg ( instead of a hand , too, in my hook ).
Invalid - retired and led the big Mafia !
Continue about mountains . Indescribable beauty of nature . The air is fragrant with herbs. After takentskoy July heat all frozen, despite the bright sun . Women gathered herbs - St. John's wort and Thyme . Cat house on the flavors just gone crazy .
On the way back - mountain honey , mare , mountain kurt , tasty Lagman , Uzbek bread , lousy brandy cloudy and cold local beer in Gazalkent .
The company was good .
A week later, the wounds will heal , and you can re- up. Whole ,

P.S. On top of the mountain I was not yet ready to go , but to repeat the campaign guests can . Come .
