LOL - 1950's Communist Tourist humour - an acquired taste.
Very ironical though, as I suppose the answer was unfortunately "no".
I'm skeptical about the "Evening Ortoten" even existing. It seems like it casually plants questions into the minds of those who "read" it....possible explanations about their deaths - in fact the very statement about the stove and the blanket is rhetorical and places the seed in the mind...."no, they were not enough - they obviously froze to death"?
And why not mention the Yeti for those looking for more of an exciting/supernatural cause of the deaths? Or Armenians? Why an "Armenian quiz"?
And what the heck does this even mean???:
"GREETING THE XXI CONVENTION OF INCREASED BIRTHRATE AMONG HIKERS!
PHILOSOPHICAL SEMINAR on the topic of "Love and tourism" takes place daily on the tent premises (central hall). Lectures are given by Dr. Thibeaux and postdoctorate of Love science Dubinina."
Perhaps laying the foundation for the "romance, jealousy and possible infighting explanation"?
