English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

15-Aug-2004 -- Впервые попытался сделать точку, но не получилось.

На машине можно подъехать к ней за 2 км. Дальше пешком по пересеченной местности и влажному густому лесу, спуститься к речушке и круто подняться метров 250 на лесистое плато, к чему я не был готов.

Пройдя метров 400 по мокрым, в том числе и после дождя, густым зарослям и насобирав на себя огромное количество семян-колючек, пришлось отказаться от попытки. К таким мероприятиям, я понял, нужно относиться более серьезно и готовиться тщательнее. Настоящий экстрим.

English narrative

15-Aug-2004 -- For the first time I tried to visit a point, but failed.

By car it is possible to approach it within 2 km. Further on foot on a cross-country terrain and a damp dense forest, to descend to a stream and abruptly to climb about 250 meters on a forested plateau, I was not ready for that.

I have passed about 400 meters through wet (including after a rain) dense underbrush, and has collected on myself a huge quantity of prickly seeds, it was necessary to give up on the attempt. For such actions, I understood, it is necessary to be more earnest and prepare more carefully. Genuinely extreme.
