English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

15-Aug-2004 -- Эта точка является юбилейной. У Владимира Николенко 50-я, а у Александра Лобанова 40-я. Если отбросить это обстоятельство, ничего особенного в этой точке нет. Точка находится в ленточном бору с типичным ландшафтом для этой зоны Алтая. Подъехать к точке удалось на 500 метров, но когда мы прошли эти 500 м, оказалось, что рядом с точкой проходит еще одна дорога. Этот факт подтверждает истину, искать точки по картам 1: 500 000 полный абсурд, но все остальное у нас в России является секретным, интересно от кого?

English narrative

15-Aug-2004 -- This point is an anniversary. It is Vladimir Nikolenko's 50th point, and Alexander Lobanov's 40th. If you reject this circumstance, there's nothing special about this point. The point is in a strip of pine forest with a typical landscape for this zone of Altai. It was possible to approach within 500m of the point, but when we have crossed these 500 m, it appeared, that near to the point there passes one more road. This fact confirms the truth, that to search for points on maps 1:500000 is fully absurd, but everything else for us in Russia is confidential, it is interesting, from whom?

The hunt goes on.
