The Volga River Expedition began today at 12:30 p.m. (Russia time). That was 3:30 am back here in Texas. The team was able to capture some quality sleep before setting off. The temperatures are chilly and it's windy. You can follow the expedition here with updated posts each day and on the SPOT tracker link on the home page...where are we. If you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer them.
