#1: CP N58 E60

(visited by Jürgen Meisel, Manfred Haslinger, Gerhard Ebner and Guenther Leitner)

01-Aug-2004 -- We are some guys who are doing the commissioning of a continous casting plant in Nizhniy Tagil. A few days ago I saw on my gps that the cp is only 8km away from our working place NTMK and so we decided to go to this CP.

We start our trip in Lenovka (we sleep and drink there every night) around 30km south of Tagil.

The first kilometers we used the same street that we are using every day to drive to NTMK (Nizhny Tagil Steelmaking Combinat). We leave Nizhny Tagil in direction north and pass some very small villages. After driving around for 40min on very bad streets we were at the cp.

We park our car and walk the last 300m trough a forest.

Millions of mosquitos escort us to the cp and Gerhard lost more than one liter of blood.....

Finally we found the cp in the middle of this forest. Gerhard marked the cp and after taking some pictures we escape as fast as possible, but hundreds of mosquitos are following us.........
