There was many kilometers of travel by snowmobile, and about the "point of no return", and about a week at 30 degrees of frost, and about the ice, failed under his feet, and about the "last day of the expedition did not come out on bond; morning managed to contact, but due to interference could make out nothing. Press office "... Well, now, the expedition returned, all intact. The main thing, you know, why all this was started?
