Türkçe

30-kas-2009 -- Doğrusu zamana karşı müthiş bir koşturmaca oldu ancak virajlı dağ yolları, Simav'da kağnı misali hareket eden çöp kamyonu ve de tabelasız yollar bizi çok yavaşlattı. Simav'ın içinden güneye dönen Samat-Hıdırdivan köyü yolundan noktaya 1.3 km yaklaştığımızda ne yazık ki hava çoktan kararmıştı. Biz de gece manzaraya hakim bir noktaya yerleşerek ateşte sucuk ve kahve keyfi yaptık.

Sabah sisli bir havaya uyandık. Yoldan devam ederek Hıdırdivan köyünü geçtik. Kara Tavuk ve Alakarga bağırtıları arasında noktaya eriştik. Muhteşem bir coğrafya burası!

30-Nov-2009 -- The story started at 41N 32E.

To be perfectly honest, it was a hell of a rush to reach the point. Whereas winding and hilly mountain roads, signpost-free country road junctions, and the congested Simav traffic with a plodding garbage truck considerably slowed us down. By the time we neared the CP 1.3 km, it had already fallen dark, unfortunately. Never mind, we spotted a scenic turnout and had a cheerful barbeque party over the night.

We woke up to a foggy day. The landscape looked very mysterious, which we rather enjoyed. Literally along with the Jay and Blackbird alarm calls passing around, we made it right at the CP. What a lovely landscape here is!

Continued at 39N 30E.
