12 in a tent on 09/18/2011 22:28:29 MDT Print View

Nice Tent. My dad had a tent like that! 12lbs or roughly 9kg for the fireplace and chimney.

But 12 in one tent? 12 people passing gas. Oh boy, don't bring beans.

Just found this topic. A little piece of Russia on BPL. Very interesting to read impressions about some familiar to me places\situations\customs from people all over the world. Makes me think once again that we all have much in common(no matter where we live).

Thanks for posting these! You have a very beautiful country and this is making me look forward to my trip to Vladimir this summer even more! Unfortunately, I'll be there for language training and not hiking, but I'm excited nevertheless!
