    Loss in Emptiness

    Jon pays tribute to an expedition partner who died skiing in Kyrgyzstan and tells about the walkabout Jon took on the frozen Kamchatka tundra. On this solo trek, Jon angers the FSB, goes looking for the holy stone of the Koryak tribes, gets caught in a killer storm, and finally takes a reckless, inrresponsible run on the perfect ski run created by the storm. A meditation on loss in the big, big empty.
