Bushby and Kieffer Beat Russian Deportation Order

By Dan Bross

Fairbanks, Ak. – Adventurers Karl Bushby and Dimitri Kieffer returned to Alaska last week, nearly 2 months after their daring foot crossing of the Bering Strait. The men spent the additional weeks in Russia, fighting a deportation order that followed their illegal entry into the country. In part 2 of a conversation with reporter Dan Bross, Bushby and Kieffer say they anticipated trouble for walking into a remote area of Russia.
