English Narrative

02-Oct-2012 -- 这次利用国庆长假特别安排了一趟东北寻点游。因为这次是我独自带着我新买的折叠车来完成4+2的旅行,即四轮加两轮的旅行。夜晚赶路基本都订好了火车卧铺,选的点也都是比较靠近大城市或道路旁的,这样便于我火车到达后借用其它交通工具,尽快接近这些点,最后抵达就用我的折叠自行车完成。

通过这次七天寻点的检验,说明了我最初的设想是完全可行的。在这七天里我完成五个点的寻找,成功完成了三个点:41°N123°E、40°N 124°E43°N 126°E,未完成两个点:42°N 127°E42°N 128°E,就让我把寻点的经历给你一一道来

鞍山是此行的第一站,当我清早七点多坐夜车从北京抵达鞍山后,在车站寄存了装车袋等物品,骑车一路向南直奔汤岗子,向路人打听去李氏房的路。十点左右骑到李氏房,离CP点不到3公里,越接近CP,越难判定要走哪条岔路接近它。

当GPS指示还有1公里多时,我就下道拐进路边的土路,因这里是丘陵地带,土路两边种的全是果树,当我离CP还有三百多米距离时,方能看到CP点的位置是位于一片被废弃的空旷的厂区内。我尽力接近到CP点的八十米距离内时,才找到了一条掩映在杂草丛中能进入这个厂区的小道,于是把车放在道边,进入厂区,厂区内空无一人,长满了野草。当我完成了寻点拍照后,继续沿路前行100多米左转,才发现其实它离大道不到200米。

回到李氏房,它恰是回城公交车的一个起始点,交了10元双份票钱即坐公交进城,充分体现了折叠车便携的优点。下午骑车在鞍钢厂区转了一圈,加深了对钢都的影响。晚上坐火车奔丹东去继续寻访 40°N 124°E

English Narrative

02-Oct-2012 -- During the National Day holiday, I arranged a trip to the northeast Liáoníng and Jílín Provinces to find the point. Because this time I was alone with my new folding bike to complete the 4+2 trip, that is four wheel plus two wheel trip. I booked a sleeper train for each night, and selected CP are also relatively close to the big cities or the sides of the roads, it is easy to use other transport close to these points as soon as possible, finally arrived the CP by my folding bike: finished.

I finished five points in seven days hunting, successful completion of the three points: 41°N 123°E, 40°N 124°E and 43°N 126°E, incomplete two points: 42°N 127°E and 42°N 128°E, let me tell you my experience of hunting the CP trip.

Ānshān is the first stop of this trip, Storage loading bags and other items at the station after the morning more than seven sleeper train from Běijīng arrived in Ānshān, cycling all the way south to go straight to the town of Tānggǎngzi(汤岗子), asking passers which way go to Lǐshìfáng(李氏房). Around ten o'clock, arriving at Lǐshìfáng(李氏房). GPS shows less than three kilometers to the CP. The closer a CP, the more difficult to determine which road to use to get close.

When the GPS indicates 1 km to the CP, I change direction and turn into a path at the side of the road, a dirt road. The hills on both sides of the road are full of fruit trees; still more than three hundred meters from the CP; the confluence is located in an open area of ​​an abandoned factory. I try to get close to the CP 80 meters on the inside; I find a trail nestled in the weeds to enter the factory; park my bike on the roadside, enter the plant; the area of ​​the factory was empty, covered with weeds.

Back to Lǐshìfáng(李氏房), its just a city bus terminus, pay the 10 yuan for the ticket to take a bus into the city. Ānshān is a steel city, afternoon cycling around the steel factory. Night by sleeper train rush to the Dāndōng to continue hunting 40°N 124°E.
