English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

20-Jan-2005 -- Мы были приятно удивлены, когда узнали, что в таком большом городе как Красноярск до сих пор есть не посещенная точка. Не откладывая на долго сборы, решаем продолжать нашу экспансию на восток. Чтобы совместить приятное с полезным, берем с собой горнолыжное снаряжение и прыгаем в поезд Новосибирск – Красноярск. Через 14 часов нас встречает на перроне наш Красноярский друг Николай Панков, который берет на себя все хлопоты по нашему пребыванию в Красноярске. Прием был организован на высшем уровне, кроме посещения точки мы покатались на двух горнолыжных трассах, погуляли по вечернему Красноярску и, конечно же, посетили сауну с купанием в Енисее. Что касается точки, то она попадает на территорию заброшенного завода, где даже нет проходной.

English narrative

20-Jan-2005 -- We were pleasantly surprised when we learned that in such a big city as Krasnoyarsk, up to now, there was an unvisited CP. Not postponing for a long time our gathering, we decide to continue our expansion to the east. To combine pleasant with useful, we take with ourselves mountain-skiing equipment and we jump into the Novosibirsk - Krasnoyarsk train. After 14 hours our Krasnoyarsk friend, Nikolay Pankov, who has undertaken all efforts for our stay in Krasnoyarsk, meets us on the platform. Our reception was organized to the highest standard; in addition to visiting the CP, we have gone on two mountain-skiing routes, have taken a walk through Krasnoyarsk in the evening, and, of course, have visited a sauna with bathing in the Yenisei. As to the CP, it turned out to be in the territory of a deserted factory, where there was not even a checkpoint.

The hunt goes on.
