17-May-2003 -- Hooray! This is our fifth point and the fourth region visited. Novosibirsk is our home city and at least we have sampled the nearest primary CP in Novosibirskaya oblast' (well, actually word "oblast'" means an major administrative district - some sort of a US state). Note that in Russia it's almost impossible to reach most of the CPs in spring or fall because of disasterous condition of most secondary roads.
Anyway, the hunt goes on.
