English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

18-Jun-2005 -- Посещение данной точки – первое для меня. Данная точка выбрана, как наиболее близкая от моей дачи (67 км по прямой). Подъезжал я к Волоколамску с юга, со стороны Рузы, от ж/д станции Волоколамск я ехал по дорогам, ориентируясь по сигналу GPS. Ехать надо к рыболовной базе, затем повернуть направо по указателю на Большое Никольское, которое к конфлюентной точке расположено ближе, чем к Муромцево. Через 800 м после после поворота на Б.Никольское точка расположена слева перпендикулярно дороге в 630 м. Этот недолгий путь лежит по нескошенному полю с разнотравьем. Оставленный предыдущими «охотниками» знак не сохранился, скорее всего, вследствие сельскохозяйственных работ.

English narrative

18-Jun-2005 -- The visit to the given point was a first for me. This point is chosen as the closest from my summer residence (67 km in a straight line). I approached Volokolamsk from the south, from the direction of Ruza. From the Volokolamsk railroad station I went on roads, being guided by the GPS signal. It is necessary to go to a fishing base, then to turn right following the signs to Bolshoe Nikolskoe, which is located closer to the confluence point than Muromtsevo. 800 m after the turn to Bolshoe Nikolskoe the point is located on the left, 630 m perpendicular to the road. This short path lies on an unmown field with mixed grasses. The sign left by previous "hunters" did not remain, probably due to the agricultural activity.
