(visited by Jerry Sheng.Ran, Francesca Fan.Ling.Na, Xiao. Zi.Qi and Sharon Cui.Yu)

06-May-2007 -- Day 3. CP#3 @ 41N121E. About 10km West of QiLiTai or 20km SW from JinZhou, LiaoNing Province, China. Complete visit.

Today’s morning our team touched our second CP – 41N 122E, now we move on to another one at 110km west: 41N 121E.

After I get out of Beijing-ShenYang Express way at “JinZhou East” exit, my team member found a road heading west, just the right direction of our target, we drive down until the road stopped by railway – there are train block us again.

Time is narrow, we couldn’t find another way to get over the railway, and our target still 2.3km NW from here, that means we need to walk about 1 hour. So, we decide leave one of our team member with the car, others move on.

We follow the railway walked about 1km north, then turn left heading west, there are plain & silent field under our feet, but the wind very strong.

When we approached to 400m from our target, a rivulet appeared in front of us, seems not wide, but full of mud, after we jump over, my shoes almost covered by black mud.

02:56pm, we hit the 41N 121E successful, at the center of wide plain field, almost nothing but dirt, very impressive.

Because of very strong wind, we get back to our car immediately after took photo, its time to go home, we still need about 5 hours to go back Beijing.

Here it is, all 3 CP in our plan are reached, I am so pride of my team, thanks for my team member Sharon Cui and XZQ, we have such a fantastic trip, and my lovely wife, your supports make all of this happened.
