English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

06-Aug-2005 -- Прошел целый год с момента посещения точек N50E088, N50E089 и N51E086, а мы все спорили, стоит ли их выставлять, если на них побывали до нас. Наконец победил здравый смысл, во-первых, мы бывали в этих краях за долго до того как узнали о проекте, во-вторых, наши предшественники посещают наши точки совершенно спокойно. Стоит заметить, что посещение CP не было основной целью этой поездки на Алтай. За неделю, проведенную на Алтае, мы проехали 3 тысячи километров на машинах, катались на лошадях и сплавлялись по реке Катунь. Описывать точки не будем, все это сделали до нас. Многие фотографии с CP совпадают полностью.

English narrative

06-Aug-2005 -- A whole year has passed since the visits to the points N50E088, N50E089 and N51E086, and all of us argued, whether it is necessary to post them if they were visited before us. At last common sense won out, first, we were in these areas for a long time before we learned about the project, secondly, our predecessors visit our points absolutely easily. It is necessary to note, that visiting the CP was not the basic purpose of this trip to Altai. After a week spent in Altai, we crossed 3 thousand kilometers by vehicle, went for a ride on horses and floated on the river Katun. We shall not describe the point, they already did all that before us. Many photos with the CP coincide completely. The hunt goes on.
