#1: View to the South

(visited by Oleg Pomogaev and serge romanowski)

02-May-2009 – Having been back from the point 49°N43°E we stayed for the night at 'Santa Barbara' motel located on the route M-21 near Surovikino town. We returned to the city of Volgograd in the morning and kept on moving south-eastwards along the M-6 route to reach the village of Cherny Yar located in Astrakhan region. The dirt track that crossed the route near the road monument allowed driving to the West towards the confluence point. It was found in the field six kilometers away from the route. There was a kind of machine and tractor station to the South-south-west from the point; a banked ground laid westwards. We had our lunch at the road cafe 'Russe' near Cherny Yar and headed to the next point 48°N45°E via the city of Volgograd.
