#1: CP

(visited by Spike)

31-Oct-2009 -- To reach the CP we have created a combined unit, consisting of a pointman (ex military guy), a como specialist and a interpreter-MRE bearer.

We started our advance in Hanoi at 13-42 and hit our RON site in SonLa at 19-06. 31/10/2009 we left our vehicle on the road at a distance of 1.2 km to the C point, our unit began to climb on the crest of the mountain. Our pointman quickly cut down the trail and after 2,5 hours we reached the CP. The C point is located on the hillside, thickly overgrown with jungle.
