English Narrative

22-Aug-2010 -- 这是我们此行第二个交汇点。出发之前并没有作太多的功课,也没有研究地形。只是车开到附近,发现这个点应该距离公路不远,并且没有人访问过,于是临时决定前往的。






English Narrative

22-Aug-2010 -- This is the second confluence point in our journey. We have no plan about this point, no map work before our trip. When we drive nearby, we found this point is not far from highway, and not been visited, we decided to visit it.

It almost noon, and the point is near Wulan Hot, the capital of Xing An District. We drive back to the old nation highway, since from map, the point is nearby a small village some 5 km from out of the way.

According to our old map, an toll gate appears only 50 meters from our off road point. It will cost us 40 RMB for two jeeps round trip. When hesitating, Nelson called me in the radio: I found a new way. He had a newer map, though the off road point is a little far than mime, we think it's the right choice.

The new way is still under construction, we have to drive on the side way. When it's almost 1 km from the CP, we come to a small village, and a barrier is here. Nelson turns left and tries to find some way on the hill, Apple decided to turn right to find some other way. When we approaching the barrier, we found we can cross it without difficult. Along this way, we are 500m away from the CP, and a new dirt road along a big courtyard lead us 30m from the CP.

With the help of APRS system, Nelson drives toward us in 5 minutes. After take photos, we decided to enjoy the water melon from Beijing.
