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.
