Here the Bear and the Mafia Roam

Kamchatka, east of Siberia. As the curtain rises on the new frontier of adventure outfitting, attendees include your guide (he’s the one with the armored vehicle), the local businessman (he’s the one with the machine gun), the UN environmentalist (he’s the nervous-looking one), and your fellow tourists (they’ll be arriving any moment now). Please enjoy the show.
