English Narrative

05-Feb-2005 -- 这个点在威县县城以西大约23公里的地方。依然是昨天的原则,早出发,早休息。7:00钟起床,收拾东西,退房。昨天餐厅信誓旦旦的跟我们说早餐7点钟开始,有馒头稀饭鸡蛋咸菜,但去餐厅张望了一下,发现还是大门紧锁,只得作罢。宾馆大门还没有开,叫门房开门,居然还要收五元的停车费,不爽。

早晨路上没有人,道路情况也不错,只有很空的长途汽车在路上慢慢跑,挨个村子的等人。20分钟后,到达长河镇,右转后开始根据GPS的方向找点。估计路程差不多了,左转下公路进入田间小路。平常估计是跑农用车的,宽度不是很够,放慢车速,尽量不要压倒农田。正前方是一个村子,CP就在村子旁边的空地上。有了前两个点的经验,这个点位置的确定非常迅速,拍照记录后上车走人。村子里静悄悄的,似乎还没有睡醒。

The road is clean in the morning, almost no car, bike, peasant, dog, only cost our 20 minutes arrived the nearest village. We turn right at Changhe village and follow the GPS, then turn left down to field. The treks in the field is not wide enough for a jeep, we have to drive carefully to avoid roll the cropland.
