(visited by Aleksandr Mashnikov)


20-Сен-2015 – От точки 53°N 44°E до села Ширяево 95 км. Останавливаюсь в придорожном кафе, обедаю. На север идёт грунтовка, она обходит овраг и идёт дальше на север. Я сворачиваю и еду вдоль оврага на восток, а дальше к точке по полю. «Нули» ловлю, не выходя из авто.

Точка расположена в Белинском районе Пензенской области, в 1,7 км севернее села Ширяево. Слияние находится на поле. Поле окружено с трёх сторон заросшими глубокими оврагами.

Время 14 часов, и я вполне успеваю к слиянию 53°N 42°E. Это посещение я не рассматривал заранее. У меня нет скачанных космоснимков. Оттуда до дома на 100 км дальше. Еду.


20-Sep-2015 – The 53°N 44°E confluence is 95 kilometers away from Shiryaevo village. I stopped in a roadside café for lunch. There is a dirt road, it circles the ravine and goes further to the north. I turned there and drove along the ravine to the east and further to the confluence on the field. I managed to catch all zeros not even leaving the car.

The confluence point is located in Belinskiy District of Penza Oblast, 1,7 kilometers north from Shiryaevo village. It is located in the field. The field is bordered by deep ranked ravines from three sides.

It is 2 pm and I have time to get to the 53°N 42°E. I did not plan this visit in advance. I don’t have any satellite images. And it means I will have 100 kilometers more to get home. I’m going.
