11-Июля-2007 – Основной целью поездки на озеро Байкал была рыбалка. Поскольку мы двигались большой компанией, на машинах, и основную группу наше хобби не интересовало, посещение CP выглядело следующим образом. Чтобы не нарушать график движения, приходилось просыпаться рано. Мы выезжали в ближайшую, по нашему мнению, от CP деревню на берегу озера и за хорошее вознаграждение нанимали моторную лодку вместе с лодочником. Эта точка находится в 14,2 км от берега. Вся операция занимала два часа времени и к подъему наших товарищей мы возвращались в строй. Описывать водные CP мы не беремся, а описание рыбалки и отдыха на Байкале выходит за рамки данного проекта.

Предыдущая точка N53ºE108º.

11-Jul-2007 – The basic purpose of that journey to Baikal Lake was fishing. We moved as a part of the big company, all by cars, and the basic group was not interested in our hobby. So the visiting CP looked as following. To not break the all-group schedule it was necessary to wake up very early. We left our group towards some village on the coast of the lake (that we regarded as the nearest to the confluence). Then for good compensation we rented a motor boat together with the boatman. This CP is in 14.2 km from the shore. All confluence trip took about two hours and we came back to our camp in time when our comrades woke up. We do not undertake to describe water CP, while the description of fishing and rest on Baikal is beyond the given project.

The previous confluence is N53ºE108º. The hunt goes on.
