8 Aralık 2008 Pazartesi
Erzurum’un ışıkları ufukta göründü. “Paşayurdu” sapağından sola içeri girip noktaya yaklaştık. Erzurum manzaralı bir noktada arabamızı parkedip geceledik.

9 Aralık 2008 Salı
Sabah erkenden kalkıp noktaya koştuk. Soğuk hava ve uzaklardaki karlı dağların manzarası uykumuzu dağıtmaya yetti. Dosdoğru ileriye 40N 42E’ye tam yol devam!

The city lights of Erzurum were seen on the horizon when we pulled off “Paşayurdu” road on the left. After selecting a scenic spot looking out on the city and close to the point, we snuggled up in our sleeping bags and fell into a deep sleep.

Cold weather was good enough to wake us up. It was a mere early morning cross running exercise to reach the DCP. Straightaway to 40N 42E!
