English Narrative

02-May-2005 -- 昨天住在锡林浩特,今天一大早跑出来去找N45E116。公路是新修的,一路非常顺利。从卫星遥感图上看,又一条比较大的土路通向目标点。电台中通知后面的车,两公里后右转,老驴大惊:你用的啥地图啊,土路都有,我这gps上面怎么什么都没有。。。。

土路大约是2车道宽,可以开得很快。两边都是牧民家的铁丝网,怎么从这条路上下去是一个问题。在这条草原路上开了10几公里后,点就在我们右侧2公里了。于是大家散开,分头寻找可能的道路。目标点附近似乎有一个小房子,应该有路过去的。不过似乎这个农民家很穷,没啥车印,只有一些乱七八糟的冲击痕迹,似乎曾经有一条路。点位于戈壁滩上,非常开阔,几个车直接开到了最终的目的地。小房子中的狗狂吠,不敢去招惹他。

风很大,后面的行程还很远。时间尚早,没有太多逗留,大家启程上路。

English Narrative

02-May-2005 -- N45E116 is 15 km from the highway, and a dirty road lead us to that point. Old donkey is very surprised when we told him to turn right and follow the dirty road: their is nothing on my expensive GPS map, what kind of map do you use? It's simple, we use Landsat 7 satellite map from NASA, and the road on grass land is very easy to recognize.

Things left is easy, and we found a small house near our target position. The point is near a river (no water at this season). A dog in the house try it's best to frighten us, and he succeed. It'd windy so we didn't spend much time on that point. We back to highway, and continue our journey before noon.
