This is the first descent of Europe’s longest river by kayak from the source in the Valdai Hills northwest of Moscow to the river’s delta at the Caspian Sea. The Volga traverses 2300 miles (3700 km) through western Russia’s most beautiful countryside with some of the richest history known to man.

The team traveled 50.0 miles yesterday. They look to be making great time today, as well. There was not a lot of news to report from yesterday therefore I did not make a journaled update. The miles have been updated, though. We have made contact with several people in Cheboksary. We are uploading videos now (taking FOREVER!).
