Рассказ по-русски

English narrative

24-Apr-2005 -- We decided to open the 2005 season with visiting the incomplete point of N53 E37. Strange as it may seem, but this time we unconsciously repeated the last year route in details. Finally, we found the right road in the western outskirts of Novosil, it went down to a gully where river Zusha flows.

By the village of Zadushnoe we turned to a muddy country road and drove across the fields almost up to point. The last 300 meters we had to overcome through a strong icy wind - the weather this april is rather nordic. But it was windy only in the open area; in the oak grove the warm breath of spring was definitely felt.

Рассказ по-русски

24 Апреля 2005 г. - Открытие сезона 2005 решили начать с прошлогодней незавершенной точки N53 E37. Удивительно, но мы сами того не подозревая в этот раз в точности повторили прошлогодний маршрут. С западной окраины Новосиля дорога спускалась в овраг, по которому протекает речка Зуша.

У въезда в деревню Задушное сворачиваем в поле и доезжаем практически до точки. Последние 300 метров пришлось преодолевать в борьбе с ледяным ветром - погода этим апрелем нас не балует. Но это только в открытом поле, а в дубовой рощице уже вовсю чувствуется теплое дыхание долгожданной весны.
