28-Feb-2005 -- This is the story of a point and a journey. The journey is from Ulaanbaatar (UB) in Mongolia to Kirriemuir in Scotland, covering 110 degrees of longitude and visiting 15 CPs on the way. The story starts at 47°N 105°E. This is CP 3. The previous point is 46°N 102°E.

The main road to Bayanhongor passes within a few hundred metres of this point. But it had not been visited before. This gave us our third new point in 24 hours. The conditions were bright and sunny and the ground flat with snow up to 30cm deep in places. This has to be one of the easiest points to visit.

No time to dally – on to lunch at Bayanhongor then 46°N 100°E.
