Hiking up Mt. Washington in NH on 7/26/22, sporting my Ukrainian vyshyvanka, courtesy of Mila & Yevgen.
Beautiful clouds a few minutes after takeoff from Logan on August 9.
Arriving by train to Przemysl, Poland near the Ukrainian border.
My battlewagon, given to me by a non-profit out of England. Turned out to be quite problematic. Oh well, live and learn...
The warehouse in Medyka, Poland where I picked up my first two loads.
Dave (from Ireland) and Eric (from Texas) loading the van.
Turned out to be quite a heavy load, lot of liquids as part of the load.
The first three hours were tough driving, very heavy fog on windy roads.
Unloading the biggest of the two loads with volunteers from a refugee center in Uman, Ukraine. As always, a great bunch of people and eager to help out in any way they can.
The end of drop 1, with drop 2 still in the van.
Greg, from Kharkiv, helping out. The van developed major problems just as I was pulling into Uman, so my contacts from the last trips, who were now working at a warehouse in Uman, were nice enough to lend me a small van to make the second run.
Loaded up and ready to go to Tarascha.
Ukrainian soldiers at the front, standing next to goods we donated during our last mission in May.
Beautiful scenery on the way to Tarascha; sunflower fields on both sides of the country road.
Elena, who speaks fluent English, helping unload at her house in Tarascha (south of Kyiv). She and her family are so dedicated to helping out the refugees in town.
Sergiy, her brother, carrying the heavy load.
Inside their house in Tarascha, after we go done unloading the van.
On the way back from Tarascha.
The yellow and blue colors are everywhere, so much national pride in Ukraine. This is the local athletic complex in Tarascha.
