English Narrative

Рассказ по-русски

22-Jul-2006 -- Направляясь в Нижний Новгород, мы решили посетить пару точек по дороге и начали с точки N56E40. В Лакинске мы свернули направо по направлению к Собинке. Проехав около 2 км, мы еще раз свернули направо по проселочной дороге, проехали насквозь через некую деревню и, следуя показаниям GPS, выехали на берег старицы реки Клязьма. В русле этой старицы и находится точка. Переплывать речку у нас не было времени, однако с берега до точки было около 50 метров. Запашок от воды, кстати, был не очень приятный…

Данные посещения:

  • Пробег (время) на машине от дома: 174 км (2,5 часа)
  • Расстояние по прямой от дороги: 0,1 км
  • Время на точке: 11.40
  • Высота 96 м,

English Narrative

22-Jul-2006 -- Having been on the road to Nizhniy Novgorod we decided to visit a couple of confluence points and started from the point 56N 40E. In Lakinsk we turned right towards Sobinka. After 2 km we turned to the right again, onto a dirty road and passed through a village. Having directed by GPS receiver we drove up to the river’s bank. It was an old river-bed of the Klyaz’ma. There is a CP there. We didn’t want to swim over the river, and it was not necessary because we were in 50 meters from the confluence spot. By the way, there was unpleasant smell from the water.

CP visit data:

  • Driving distance (time) from home: 174 km (2.5 h)
  • Straight distance to CP from the road: 0.1 km
  • Time at the CP: 11.40
  • Altitude 96 m,
