Ирина Орлова reports:
«You probably won’t believe but we started to hew the camp down. It’s a kind of a high-latitude slang: to «hew down» tents. Few years ago a new kid on the camp really took an ax upon hearing of this phrase: «Boys, let’s hew the mess-room down!» 🙂
So we started now to disassemble unused tents. There are only 25 skiers on the way, and their trip will be over very soon — and that’s all of it!»
