Pavel was gracious enough to send us a great group of pictures of West and Jeff as they were leaving Volgograd. He and his brother spent some time with our team as they were leaving, taking pictures and helping out.
Found a little bit about Pavel Zhidov. He is an active outdoorsman. He likes to hunt, fish and mountain bike...and now kayak. He has a couple of brothers and his family has a farm. He is not married and doesn't any kids but, ladies, he is available and hopes to meet a really nice girl! He has a generous personality.
