    Yep, from an article she wrote about skiing at the upcoming winter Olympic venue in Sochi:

    You can see her full blog post about the experience, which is pretty cool stuff if I may say so on her blog here: http://hollyskis.blogspot.com/2013/02/so-much-about-sochi.html

    I have to say I am very curious about traveling in Russia, but it is actually one of the countries that actually worries me. Oh well, it will happen at some point I'm sure :p

    We have actually condensed recently :p My other sister was doing massage therapy school in Costa Rica but now she is in California, which means for the first time in a few years two of us siblings are living in the same state since my brother is already there.

    Holly has had a pretty interesting ski season this year, and prospects look very good for being on the Olympic team for the Russia olympics next year. Maybe I should just continue my trip for 6 more months, and meet her in Russia ;)

    A friend of mine I met only a few months ago also recently mentioned a group of Russian friends he knows in St. Louis, the description of which was pretty close to Will's. This guy was in the 82nd Airborne but didn't say how they met up. I know the 82nd gets around, but not as much as the US and Soviet Russian Navies.

    I'll defer to the expert on that. Will?
