Рассказ по-русски

English narrative

19-Aug-2006 -- 6:30 a.m., August 19, 2006. Five bicyclists make their way through the impassable forrest about 4 km from the Lida-Radun road. Field and timber lands are behind; we are simply walking through the forrest with our bikes next to us. GPS signal often gets lost. The forest becomes more impassable. About 20-30 meters from the confluence point, we leave our bikes on the ground and continue walking. Finally, we are at the destination point and happy to mark it. We are unable to lock in the exact zeros on the GPS navigator due to the rain and dense forest that loses the satellite signals.

Рассказ по-русски

19-Aug-2006 -- 6.30 утро 19 августа 2006 года. Пятеро велосипедистов бредут через непроходимый лес примерно в 4 километрах от дороги Лида-Радунь. Полевые и лесные дороги кончились, идем просто через лес. Сигнал периодически пропадает. Лес становится все более непроходимым. В 20-30 метрах от нашей первой точки оставляем велосипеды и дальше идем пешком. Находим точку и счастливые отмечаем сие место. Из-за дождя и густого леса, в котором пропадает сигнал от спутников, нам не удается зафиксировать на GPS навигаторе точные нолики.
