Alexander Abramov celebrated his 60th birthday at the Canadian border. He was not allowed to continue without explanation

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the USA:

Wow, that was a birthday! 60 years, anniversary. You won't believe who you tell. It doesn't happen that way. The day started very optimistically. The sun was shining and minus 25.

The plan was to visit first the American base in Minot. Then drive to Canada and celebrate my birthday there. We even ordered a cake and a restaurant.

Our caravan was stopped at the border with Canada. At 8 hours from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., we were checked, interrogated, all cars were carefully checked and the contents of all computers and phones were checked. Since we were already late for the restaurant, we celebrated my DR right at the border control with a performance of the Happy Birthday.

 The interrogation was going on for 8 hours. We each answered 100 questions. The funniest one was: what are my connections with the Russian Geographical Society?

And as a final point and an anniversary gift, I was given a document stating that my visa was suspended on January 12, which I should have been informed about. But they did not inform and did not name the reasons. But I can't enter Canada.

 I mean, I can't go to the North Pole. The showdown lasted several hours. Saying goodbye to the team, we hugged. As a result, Kostya Vasenko took me to the town of Minot, 150 km from the border. There is an airport there. And now it's 3 a.m. It's all so sudden.

Now I'm lying on the bed and slowly blinking away the gifts of fate for 60 years. What's it? Leap year or a gift of fate? We'll wait and see.

I'm looking at tickets to Iguassu Falls right now. Departure is in 4 hours. And what, you need to cheer up somehow.... Go ahead! The adventure continues!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Alexander Abramov, as part of the Transglobal expedition, drove through the famous city of Fargo, approached the Canadian border and his anniversary

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the USA:

Today was an exciting day. We left Minneapolis. Then we drove towards the Canadian border. We stopped to have a snack and refuel in the city of Fargo, which is famous for the movie and TV series "Fargo". This movie is black humor. People are constantly being killed there. And all this happens in winter in a blizzard. That's right. A blizzard immediately began and it became creepy. After all, films are not made just like that. But overall, it was a beautiful day.

I went to Gym in the evening. 10 km uphill on a treadmill and an hour of strength exercises restored confidence and strength. We drive for 7-8 hours every day and movement is necessary in order not to freeze in the driver's position forever.

Tomorrow is the Canadian border and my anniversary. We will celebrate the anniversary in the USA in the morning and celebrate it in Canada in the evening. 60 years after all!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alexander Abramov and his friends from the Transglobal expedition arrived in Minneapolis. The frost is getting stronger, and the team is moving further north

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the USA: Today we left Chicago and it was a hard day. We drove more than 600 km to Minneapolis on icy roads. The temperature is already -23 degrees. In the morning, the ... read more

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the USA:

Today we left Chicago and it was a hard day. We drove more than 600 km to Minneapolis on icy roads. The temperature is already -23 degrees. In the morning, the non-freezing liquid in the window washers froze. We had to stop and warm it up with boiling water at the gas station. We bought a new liquid at -37C.

The whole road is littered with long tracks that have flown into a ditch. These are the consequences of bad weather and a snow-covered highway. We drove carefully. No more than 120 km per hour and discussed how best to drive 4x4 or how?

Minneapolis surprised me. It's a nice huge, but kind of homely city.

In the evening, we also managed to drive to a REI store. We bought equipment for the spring Everest and summer K2. In the evening there is a Japanese restaurant.

I need to sleep, because in the morning at 6:30 I have to go to the gym. Constantly driving, the body grows stout and weak. We need a load.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alexander Abramov, as part of the Transglobal expedition, overcame another section of the route, the group arrived in Chicago. Extreme cold reigns in America

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the USA:

The wind was blowing so hard outside all night that I thought it was the air conditioner roaring. Today was an interesting day. Kostya Vasenko and I got up at 6:30 a.m. Let's go to Gym. We worked out for an hour before breakfast. At 9 a.m. we went out to the cars. They're all in ice. The doors barely opened.

Go. The track is in ice. They gradually accelerated. Today there was a section of about 500 km between Detroit and Chicago. There were at least 10 cars lying on the roadsides, which had already flown off the highway. Tinsmith's Day. Before reaching Chicago, about 100 kilometers away, such a case occurred.  Either drunk or stoned, an African-American with dreadlocks and a Lancer was driving in the left lane. It looks like it's caught on a snow bank. He started spinning on the road. And smoothly demolish it in the right row. In which our column was traveling. He flew straight into the car where Lesha Safonov and Vasya Shakhnovsky were sitting. Lesha managed to slow down, and the torpedo flew between the first and second cars into a ditch. To be honest, it was sooo dangerous. On an icy road, he could just push the car into a ditch. They didn't have time to film it, of course. But it's imprinted on my brain. Everyone is alive. 

Since we arrived in Chicago early, we decided to take a ride through the center. We saw the third bridge, under which the brothers from the movie Brother 2 met. Actually, it was a fun trip.

We're going to Minneapolis tomorrow. It's already minus 20. And in Yellow Knife, the intermediate finish of our race, it is already minus 35.

The night from January 31 to January 1, 2024, the team of Alex Abramov and Mingma Gelu Sherpa spent at the Nido de Condores Camp. At an altitude of 5,600 meters. Probably the highest in the world this New Year! The camp is great. We have a large tent with a kitchen-dining room. Tables, chairs, dishes. Even a large stove with a 20-liter cylinder. And this is at the height of the summit of Mount Elbrus. It's a pleasure to be there. We went down quickly.
