English narrative

09-May-2006 -- 这个点就在从额济纳通往乌力吉的路上,一开始我们并没有注意到他的存在,直道车辆距离只有几十公里的地方,才发现公里一直沿着北纬42度向西.于是在全中国电子地图上表示出了这个点,同时打开了Global Mapper,察看地形.

当车子停在东经102度的时候,纬度之差0.2秒左右,也就是说只有200米左右.因为是单车,不敢贸然下路;没有带手持GPS,只好把tablet从导航架子上拆下来,端着它去找点.不过倒也有一个好处,只要一只手拿着tablet看读数,另外一只手左右晃动天线,就可以找到比较精确的点了.
一处平淡无奇的典型戈壁景观,周围什么都没有.给我的tablet在戈壁上留影后返回了车子.这个点实在太轻松了,汽车根本没有驶下公路,而徒步的距离也不过250米而已.

English narrative

09-May-2006 -- We just on our way home, and do not have plan to visit a confluence point, until we found that our jeep is ride just on longtitue 42 degree. We travel by ourself in gobi, and their is no other car, so we dare not to driver off-road to hunt the point. Luckily, the point is nearby the highway.

I don't have a GPS handset in hand, so i have to bring my tablet navigation system with me. It's about 200 meters beside the road, and only takes me a few minutes to finish it.

It have typical gobi sight near the point, only rock and sand near by. The sunset is very beatiful that day.
