После того как я порвал связки в колене, у меня возникли большие проблемы, поскольку мне нужно было пройти около 30 миль по тайге чтобы добраться до Ивдель. Я даже не мог рассчитывать на какую-либо помощь. Не знал как быть, что делать? Было предложено, подождать попутный транспорт, чтобы кто-то смог меня подвезти к Учма или Ивдель (30 и 80 миль соответственно). С приближением сумерек и после нескольких часов ожидания, возле мемориального камня Холатчахль, подъехала группа машин. Буду вечно благодарен этим людям, двое из которых прервали свою поездку чтобы отвезти меня в Екатеринбург. Нужно было проехать более 400 миль, 70 из которых - через горы. Потребовалось почти 17 часов беспрерывного пути. Не могу выразить все слова благодарности Артему и Заку, которые невзирая на свои планы, подвезли, накормили меня и даже отказались от какого-либо вознаграждения. Также хочу выразить благодарность остальной части группы, особенно Наташе и Данил, которые тоже очень мне помогли.

Ещё раз,большое спасибо Артему, Заке, Наташе, Данил и всей группе. Живи и процветай Россия!

After I tore the ligaments in my knee, I had a big problem as I could not trek back the 30 or so miles through the Taiga to get the transport back to Ivdel and neither could I really expect anyone to carry me. So what to do? It was suggested that I wait for someone passing to maybe give me a lift to Ushma or Ivdel (30 and 80 miles away respectively). After waiting for many hours by the memorial stone on Kholat Syakhl and with nightfall approaching, a group of vehicles arrived. I will forever be grateful to them for coming to my rescue. Two of the group detached themselves and cut their trip short to drive me all the way back to Ekaterinburg. Well over 400 miles away and through the mountains for the first 70 miles. It took nearly 17 hours of almost non-stop driving. To Artem and Zack who cut short their trip, drove me back, fed me and refused to accept any payment - I cannot thank them enough to have done all that for a stranger. I also want to thank the rest of the group especially Natasha and Daniel who also showed me great kindness.

To Artem, Zack, Nathasha, Daniel and everyone in the group - I say a big thank you and Long Live Russia!!!!
