English Narrative

04-Feb-2005 -- This is my first confluence trip, we plan to spend three days to visit as much point as we can. From the map, we found it's only 36km from my home town! Hope it will give us good luck.

2005-02-04 We get up early and began our trip at 7:30 a.m. We carry a computer with detail map which will help us to find our way and track our route. The Jing-Kai super highway is quite good, but disppeared when we enter Heibei province. So we have to slow down.

Our map is can not as new as we expected. When we arrived Wu Qiang Xian, we drive around the city to find the entrance. Finally we found the way we are hunting for are under construction, so we drive to field to go on, it's 3.6km from 38N 116E.

There is no good way in the field, we follow the GPS from one village to the other, cross one super highway, two river. Finally reach the point at 11:40 a.m., it's about 20 meters from the trek. The point were grow corn and wheat in summer.

It's cold here, and hard to find land mark, so we give up to take panoramic photo and just take photo for four direction. The way back to highway is easy but not save much time.
