    Larisa’s brother in law, Aleksey (Alyosha) will be glad to assist going to small places, or if you need accomadations.

    You, or Dasha, can call him (we gave you his phone number). Or use email – check your email inbox for his email address and planned whereabouts for the next few days.

    He wants you to know that he will be glad to try and help in whatever way that you may need, now or later.

    BTW, his town (1 hr south of Ekat.) isn’t too different from what you’re looking for, but it’s a di-gorod (2 industry town – steel and hydrogen flouride).

    Groovy idea and effort. I’m thinking about donating. Do you have any other videos other than the teaser?

      Hey Andrew! Thanks. We don’t as of yet have any others related to this project. I was going to put one together this week but I have been having computer problems. If you want to see some other videos I have done, you can youtube search “Sammy Witness Tree Gore” and the first 5 are short, one-shot music videos of my friend Sammy. I will try to get some other related videos up soon though.

    It has been interesting reading your blog. I am just preparing for my 23rd trip to Kazan where I and sometimes others help our dear young friends understand the difference between British and American English. We spend almost all our time in the city although we have taken a few boat trips and/or drives to nearby communities on the Volga or inland. I have a question: How do you register when you are traveling to so many cities in so many areas? I find that the registration process is the most inane waste of time!

    • Tree Gore August 15, 2011 at 1:12 am #

      23 times in Kazan! Wow. Yes it is an insane waste of time, and money. I usually push the limits by skirting around the rules for registration. For this trip, we registered in Moscow when we first arrived and made sure to register for our entire stay – Do this by finding a hostel or hotel and asking how much it would cost to register for the entire length of your visa. You will eventually find someone willing.

      Sometime over the last year the length of time before required registration was changed. A person is now allowed a full 7 business days in an area before registration is required, so we keep all of our train and bus ticket stubs as means of showing that we are traveling a lot and not staying in one place for more than 7 days at a time (too obviously, anyways). If we needed to stay in a area for more than 7 days, we would (in theory) typically take a day trip somewhere to break it up and keep the ticket. In practice this didn’t always happen and hitchhiking has been a problem here because there is obviously no documentation.However, in 3 months we have acquired quite a few ticket stubs and really I am banking on the fact that no one is actually going to want to go through the stack and add up all the dates to see where we stayed for 9+ days (including weekends).

      I hope that helps.

    Your project sounds fascinating! Sounds like you have done an exceptional job so far!

    If you need translations for your video content, I would be glad to assist. I am a Sound Recording Tech / Russian double major at BYU. My listening comprehension is excellent- I’ve scored top marks on standardized language tests, (after living in Siberia and Kazakhstan for 2 years). Let me know if I can be of assistance.

    Hey Christine,

    I don’t know if you remember me but we met in Irkutsk last summer. You were printing off some pics at the kodak store and came up and said hello to us. We were both serving missions in Siberia. Our Russian teacher here at BYU fowarded us an email asking for help translating clips. I live with 2 other Russian missionaries and if you need any help translating, the 3 of us would be willing to help out. Let us know!

    Hello, my name is Jonathon Stanley, I am a student at BYU majoring in Russian. I received an email from my professor in the Russian department that you are requesting volunteer help on translation. I can certainly help if ever you need. I’m in Provo, and pretty easy to get a hold of. Just write me back and tell me what you need!

  8. Татьяна September 13, 2011 at 1:44 pm #

    Ребята, здравствуйте. Рада встрече с вами теперь уже в нете. Я-Татьяна из Байкальска. Посмотрела ваш прект. Это интересно. Хотя, много для меня непонятно. О себе. Я неплохо отработала летний сезон. В июле туристов было немало. Сейчас отрабатываю осенние и зимние предложения, чтобы предложить их народу. Мой сын, Никита, совершил 12 походов по Хамар-Дабану, Саянам, сплавлялся по рекам. Так что, если кто-то интересуется активным туризмом в Сибири-милости прошу. Не теряйтесь.

    • Tree Gore September 18, 2011 at 8:03 am #

      Татьяна! Hello! Это хорошо, чтобы услышать от вас. У нас было замечательное лето в Россию и с нетерпением ждем, чтобы посетить еще раз. Спасибо вам за помощь.

    Hey man, it is Travis (I was in your Post-Soviet Film & Media class in the sprint). Contact me. I didn’t realize you were raising funds for your project. Congratulations on getting funded!!! I’d like to contribute to the project still, if I can. (I can write you a check or pay you via paypal, or give you some $). I don’t have a lot, but I’d like to give you something. And, I noticed that you might need some editing assistance in the project…I may be interested in helping with that, so We should talk! Send me an e-mail!

    I was just wondering if you guys were still in need of any translation help. I’m a Russian major at BYU and I would be happy to help out however I can. Feel free to contact me if you could use the extra help.


    • Tree Gore September 22, 2011 at 4:03 am #

      Yes we would love more help. I will send you an email.

  11. Derek September 27, 2011 at 10:19 pm #

    Hey, Tree! It’s been cool to follow you and Christine around Russia. Shoot me an e-mail so I can talk to you about your Quarry membership freeze. We don’t have an e-mail on file for you, and I doubt a phone call would work since you’re abroad, but still a man (i.e. not a broad).

  12. Scott July 31, 2018 at 9:20 pm #

    I thought you would like to know, it looks like you’ve misspelled the word “wich” on your website. Silly mistakes can ruin your site’s credibility. In the past I’ve used a tool like to keep mistakes off my website.
