#1: View to the East

(visited by Yuri Kouxa and Vasily Karpenko)

07-May-2004 -- Actually, the point is located inside village Churayevo. It's in Alsheyevsky rayon (aka district) of Republica Bashkortostan (Russia). The rayon center is Rayevka town (about 14 km). By the way, it's my place of birth. This point was reached by car.

Thank goodness:

  • there was a dry weather: otherwise the last 3 km would have had to be walked;
  • the point didn't fall on private property
  • GPS+ digi-cam were with us.

The wanted point turned out to be inside a beautiful village upon river Dyoma, exactly on a pile of bullshit (see picture #3)
