Train is two o'clock in the afternoon the next day, and we stayed up all night with excitement, I asked the fat man we spent how much money is left, complaining about 150 left in the fat man, this money is enough to return fares and meals.
I think that no, we haven't been back for more than 10 years, two go to see folks, is simply not appropriate, have to find a way to get some money to buy gifts for folks.
Fat man said simply, I sold the piece of jade for qianbabai.
I say you keep it, you don't always thinking about his mother that something your dad left you, sell may not come back, then blue in the gut.
Finally I find out some valuable things, us Eagles songs watch is my dad bought me when I became the company commander, which belongs to the exclusive limited edition, money does not necessarily buy it, at the time worth more than more than 200 dollars on the market. I go to panjiayuan sold table big teeth, this grandson received nothing, heard that we are going to Inner Mongolia to begin, also sponsor our 100 money, agree to what we found by him to contact the buyer.
80, 300 yuan to households over two or three months of luxury, is a sum of money. With more than 300 dollars, I bought a lot of things to eat, are candied fruit, candy, canned food, chocolates, tea and the like, of these mountains is eat, the rest of the money exchanged on the black market for a national food stamps.
Walk two days and two nights in a hopeful mood is like a long, standing sitting day after the tractor, then walk a day, one-night mountain road.
Both of us left after less than a day into the mountains will never go any farther, carrying things too heavy, each weight more than 100 kilos, I gritted his teeth can stick, fat is really dying, sitting under a tree panted, even the words out.
Thanks to met out of the village do accounting, we jump the queue he is a growing boy, playing with us all day long, without interruption to call our "brother".
Accounting at us so much baggage, and quickly ran back to the village, called a few people take a donkey to pick us up, we all know of these older, there are both 33 years old girl was born after I left, they called me "Uncle", I hear it less comfortable.
I asked accountants: "no young men in the village? ”
Accounting said: "labour in the countryside who go in with the team. It wasn't 76: Tangshan earthquake, although with me that Xu was 108,000 miles, but we that Xu is a seismic zone, the earthquake has shattered his Lama Groove niuxinshan the entire, there were entire mausoleum as Palace, we better bold in moving things in the village. The guy went to good old nose. Results do not know how, alerted the County Government, the archaeological team came. Say it is the tomb of Liao Xiao Taihou, bring guys home all the good stuff is gone, there is nothing left. With niuxinshan corner and the team is not what seems to be saying that there's lots of good stuff to be excavated, labour are employed in rural areas to go to work, a labour tube tube drinks a day to three dollars. Not this whole years, nor clean, many people also put it to work. ”
I didn't vomit blood and a fat guy had heard this word almost, dare we burn incense to the twins, even the Buddha are out butt.
But there is no way, not cultural relic Bureau official who went to the team's turf. Since you have come, play for a few days, trying to find other places, large tombs not only niuxinshan that one anyway.
When it was getting into the countryside, received the news folks are waiting at the door, all of us have come, obligingly, swallow took his daughter cried and said to us: "Oh, old fat man, you miss us so much, how nothing all these years are not? "Swallow her father clung to us:" you son of a rabbit, not a shadow, this time not for two or three years, and no one is allowed to go. ”
I like fat cry, fat man lived in this area for six or seven years, I lived only for one year, but the mountain man plain, you live it, they always treated you as a family. Here are before, haven't changed a bit, no electricity, no roads, many people haven't seen the light. I grew more and more sad, thinking that with money, must repair the road for the villagers, but when are we going to have the money.
Then the old party was supported by people in the village also came, not to him and loudly said, "President of kids back? Chairman of his old man now, please? How the cultural revolution? ”
I listen to has to be wondering, the President he now, OK, I don't know. I rushed to the front of the old party's arm and said: "he better go, lying in the Museum every day, everyone who wants him, buy tickets to see him. Oh, by the way, as early as the end of the cultural revolution, Comrade Xiaoping led our guys now that reform and opening up. ”
Old party seemed not to hear what I say, pulled neck loudly asked: "what?" Comrade Xiao Ming is what? ”
Swallow next to tell me: "you don't listen to what he says, does not know how, his 73 years, deaf, cannot hear anything, still confused. ”
I understood, turned out to be true, I said loudly in the old party's ear: "party, I'll bring you a lot of delicious food, delivered to you, you eat slowly. ”
They said, go into the countryside, old party in the back shouted: "kids, you go back to the old report we firmly uphold the great proletarian cultural revolution ... ... The how how. ”
Night swallow on their Kang table filled with fried chicken, smoked deer legs, boil sauce cooked sauerkraut powder in a large casserole. Swallow's husband is also very familiar with us, he came back to work niuxinshan not, for the time being to see.
Swallow dad to drink with our talk, I said niuxinshan the Tomb thing, by the way he is there in the mountains of ancient tombs of the nobles.
Since ancient times, who had known Tomb in the mountain is a profitable sideline, there is no moral issue, is in the North. Took the robbery and murder of Western Hunan in the South when the sideline, mountain farm during the day, night for men, hiding in the Woods, killing of foreign businessmen in the past, not prisoner. It was forced by the environment for thousands of years, even relying on, eat Tomb Badlands, eat passing the living. As long as the nearby Tomb, someone will dig. In remote areas, and the Emperor is far away, the law can't get to here, though it makes sense legally, no one can sense. The age of most of the tombs in the vicinity too long, passage, would have no obvious marks or earlier was dug up by the mountain.
Swallow her dad saying no liberation was a long time ago, this village has turned out several young amateur "thieves", at that time did not know niuxinshan Tomb, they go to a legendary place nuggets dug grave, and didn't know what had hit, all of which there is no return, swallow's uncle is one of them. The legendary place swallows her dad know about location, but never dared to go.
Said the past, let the elderly into a memory, yabuli on old pipe, pitter-patter took a few mouthfuls, thought for a long time before said: "are you looking for Tomb Raider, which in addition to niuxinshan, there is no nearby. So the old legend, from Tuan Shan mountains to the North, five days away, on the Sino-Mongolian border there is a savage black ditch, the legend that is all gold nobles grave, but it places off the beaten track, and savage, and you have the nerve to do? ”
Savage Groove name I have heard, but have not heard there is Tomb Raider, a Raiders on what exactly is being hurt by something, I don't know, swallows her dad didn't know, the whole village is not clear.
In the mountains, had too many dangerous things, all kinds of wild animals, even the weather may change the natural environment to human life, if we get the smoky bubble (leaf is formed by rain-soaked rotting swamp), giving cover to the inside, even Ronaldo fairies escape.
We go firmly, swallows her dad could stop him. No one in the village has actually been to black savage trench, and only know about location, near the border, and no human being, even into the mountains in the countryside hunting or mining goods won't get that far. Coupled with the swallows her dad aged, old and suffering from rheumatism, has been unable to enter the mountain, swallow was pregnant with her second child, not out of town. Young adults in the village are working in the Lama ditch, won't be back for a short time.
Swallow her dad said: "I don't personally take you to is not always assured that the danger does not come from the savage of savage trench is the key terrain, a winter blowing white air, easy to get lost. But it is early autumn, don't have to worry about this section. You go, be sure to bring a good dog, still looking for a good guide, our countryside these years a couple of Mastiff, this time for you to take. ”
Mastiffs are not simply referring to the Tibetan Mastiff, in the Northeast called large dogs of Mastiff, and the Tibetan Mastiff is not exactly the same.
Hunters, herdsmen living in the forest and grassland in the North, due to the threat of wolves and black bears of these beasts, by General Hound find it difficult to meet, learn from Tibetan Mastiff way of raising mastiffs. The saying goes nine dogs Mastiff, these words don't mean nine dogs will be able to find a mastiff. Must be a female dog lineages superior, a nest at the same time gave birth to nine puppies, knocked the nine puppies born into, putteth not to eat or drink, let them kill each other, last surviving only a is mastiff. Mastiff aggressive, three mastiffs can bear a prime torn to pieces alive.
A total of three dogs in the village, plus five best hounds, all to us, swallows her dad and we recommend a wizard Eiko.
Eiko was just 19 years old, is rare the Oroqen nationality, in the younger generation of hunters, no one biyingzi better, and she is a famous Sharpshooter in the mountains, although she is young, grew up with her dad in the Woods hunting, things she did not know of the old Woods. The three Mastiff in the village, there are two she had raised.
Before leaving, I swallow helped to prepare the things, bird cage, glutinous rice, black donkey hooves, crowbars, a VAT of vinegar and wine.
Ready, swallows thousands bade told of her dad, don't force could not be found, go back, did he return to us in tuanshan.
Looking for Tomb Raider, I am quite confident, as long as the savage trench, no tomb and, if there is, I'm sure I can find it. About Tomb Raider, I learn some knowledge from the books, and most are used to listen to my grandfather said, Mr Woo my grandfather worked as an officer in the old warlord forces, some of his soldiers, a former tanglin thief Sun Dianying men, involved in mining large Tomb Raider action multiple times, experienced, my grandfather knew the smell, is to listen to what they say.
Always stand is divided into civil, two stolen is a daring robbery, choose mausoleum, and Qin Xiang Yu should be stolen fathers, and circumstances as to the period of the three kingdoms touch gold captain is merely Crown stolen system form pipeline operations. There is also a distinction between amateur and professional, amateur digging what, aristocratic princely graves found in our professional, small one will not see your eyes.
Tomb Raider and Tomb lies can find, this is a deep and enormous subject. Thousands of years of Chinese dynasties, rise and fall, construction and selection of imperial tombs are not the same. In Qin Han period, shots, more is covered bucket type of tombs, covered bucket that seal mounds of shape, like is put volume meters of bucket turned came cover in above, edges see ribs see line, most top is a small of square platform, some like Egypt of pyramid, just China of more has a side, is in South America found of "lost of civilization" Maya civilization in the of pyramid amazing to similar. The contact, no one to figure out.
Tang Shan Ling, the magnitude of the project, forceful, it's also about power of Tang dynasty at that time, the Tang dynasty Tomb appearing all over the unit we will be the best in Empire style.
From Song dynasty to Ming and Qing period, disaster one after another, ancient history of China's largest natural disasters also appeared several times in this period, weak, tombs of the nobility scale would have been less costly.
Later during the Qing dynasty, Kangxi period, the country's economy and productivity has been greatly restored, Tomb architecture changed, more ground-oriented architecture, combined with the Memorial Temple gardens. Learn from former security experience, structure of the underground Palace of the Qing dynasty tombs are very substantial, the most difficult.
After all, no matter what generation, form of tombs in China for thousands of years, are derived from the Fu Xi 64 hexagrams reproduction out of the five elements of Feng Shui layout, the same that all of the world situation, it boils down to the pursuit of four words: nature, nature one.
Tomb culture is the essence of Chinese culture, Mongolia, Uighur, Tibetan, gold teeth, the Wusun, Xianbei and the she people, the Jurchen, dangxiang ethnic minority, are subject to a great deal of influence, pattern of the Tomb followed suit in the Central Plains, but most had to be scratched. It can be said that if we watch the pulse of mountains and rivers in the world to hide even the deepest tombs can easily find.
Farther is the vast primeval forests, Eiko in open with eight dogs, fat man holding short horse laden with tents, and more supplies and equipment, I carry a gun in the back, a group of people into the mountains on the Mongolian border.
Fat yingzi in the front walk and ask: "dameizi, savage savage ditch what the hell is wrong? What is a savage thing, have you seen yet? ”
Eiko said: "I don't know what is savage, heard my dad say that over the years many people have seen, but no one caught live, haven't seen corpses of the dead, seen don't know what is. ”
I laughed in the back: "fat, you're damn no culture, as its name implies, savage is the wild one and study hard. Do you know what a wild man? Was born in the wild, may be on the tree, may also be long, anyway, it is not artificial. ”
The legend of Yeti in shennongjia has a long history, I had heard of in the army. Is said to have a PLA soldier was shot and killed in the shennongjia a savage and Savage's body fell off the high cliff, to finally did figure out that Savage is one, is also big, hairy monkey. Almost all seen savage witnesses contended: wild man tall and strong, full of flowers and long black hair.
Eiko tells us, that savage of the black ditch, previously called savage Groove, known as the "dead man's ditch", when you take the old, nor the dead channel, is called "holding month gap", has always been a Jin noble cemetery. Later, Mongolia army black man with the golden key, murder, such as mountains, Mongolia people dead were thrown into a ditch, entire valleys were filled, so the locals call this is "dead man's ditch". Then someone in the vicinity of the Valley saw the savage, passed, and ditch the dead's name was replaced by savage trench.
Savage is nothing terrible, savage again much like mastiffs, please? Suddenly appeared in my mind a thought, savage didn't know what sells in the market price? But then think about doing less humane, still don't hit their idea, earnest attention to dig on the Tomb.
As with horses, can't climb the slope is too steep mountains, encounters the mountains to bypass this along very slowly. Autumn forests, the scenery is gorgeous, and Plains of red and yellow leaves, storied dye, who tirelessly. Occasionally run out of one or two deep in the Woods to see the pheasants, hares, roe deer, sloths, Roe, Eiko dogs to catch, camping at night, gather some straw mushroom spice in the mountain, lit a campfire barbecue, fat man and I are both gourmet and tasted like the game these days.
In this way in the mountains, without dogs, he'll have to sleep in the trees, we had three plus five big giant Mastiff dogs, which, almost without opposition in the forest, unless the person is caught three more bears. Eiko said mastiffs are a bear's nemesis, a bear in the Woods heard the cries of Mastiff, far away right now, so at night we all slept in a tent, and loyal dogs around the tents stand, there is nothing to worry about, these dogs are more reliable than people.
Eiko temper a lot younger than swallows can rush, mad head garlic alone, do not let small peppers. Courses to take, what to eat, they must listen to her, who she is Wizard, the dogs could hear her. I was accustomed to when the company commander, and she can only endure as a common soldier.
But Eiko did have a thing or two, hunting, pathfinding, find spring water, distinguish between mushrooms have HIV, in the mountains to look for mushrooms, mushroom, hazelnut, Kaki, codonopsis, schisandra, scarcely had she did not understand. And some animals in the mountains I call your name, you have never seen, Eiko has been able to say this is what animals live in what environments, feeding on what what, what traps can capture. I and a fat guy big eye stares, can only say two words: clothes.
The Oroqen are natural hunters. "Oroqen" these three words is the official name for the nation is not at all accurate, sometimes they call themselves "e-spring" or "Russian spring", mean wandering in the forest mountains of the people of the deer. They wander in Xiaoxing ' an mountains forest and live a nomadic life of hunting and fishing. When China had just liberated, the Oroqen population less than 1000 people, the Government let them come out of the bad survival environment of the mountains, to lead a settled life. But people of ancestors that Safari, there is a near-deification-like adoration and longing for, they believe in shamans, worship nature, although live a sedentary life, and is always into hunting.
No words, said short. All the xiaoxingyesu, walking in the forest of 67 days, finally reached the black wind of the Sino-Mongolian border. Black Forest secret indescribable depths almost no place to stand, all Hardy species such as pine, larch, birch, poplar, kuzhibaiye layer with a layer of the Earth, step into it. People do, is the horse's weight is large, often stuck can not move, we had to strength as he could even pull, go to get a push a way forward.
Do not know how many of the following years, rotting leaves and trapped inside the dead beast, sent waves of rotten smell, the stench mixing with the smell of pine and wild flowers, smells strange, but after much makes people feel a little bit addictive.
Black draught, rest is me. We found a Valley, this must be the legendary savage trench, where the landforms here nothing fancy, not as fierce as Lama ditch bad, but it's just intuitive sense, Eiko said Valley affirmative smoky bubble, be sure to see again, stuck into the smoky bubble may not get out. To down to savage the ditch, each must prepare a big wooden stick went bottom leaves too much, bad than a swamp, now is not the rainy season, don't want to go down.
Savage trench belongs to the Greater Khingan Yu Mo and flat on both sides of the mountain, the whole Valley North-South, East and west sides are hills, in the midst of sunshine all year round for a short time, Yin is heavy. Valley full of dry rot in leaves of grass, except for a few low sparse bushes, what trees did not grow. Out of the trees in the Valley is more sparse, primeval forests so far, farther, more than 200 miles Outer Mongolia is a vast Prairie.
It was near dusk, blood red Sun hangs in the sky, we reached the Hill, look out across, Red Sun falling, the sky is full of big chunks of red cloud, like the sky is dyed by the thick paint, forest-covered rolling hills, endless Prairie view in the distance becomes hazy, mountain such as the sea, the setting sun was red as blood.
See this beauty great smooth FAT: "Lao Hu, this scenery is too beautiful, my trip didn't come. ”
I miss the most is the tomb of savage trench, control of the 16 words yin and Yang Feng Shui technique carefully watch the Valley terrain, identification gossip took a compass bearing, AO: "his mother finally came to the right place, this noble tombs in the Valley. ”
Stable male terrain, air swallowing, and end is the Prairie, and the other end connected to the da hinggan mountains, Mongolia Prairie is like a vast ocean, and holds monthly Groove like a river confluence into the sea.
Feng Shui style here is not enough to bury the Kings, but buried a sovereign million General Officer, that was more than enough, wait until the times when Moon pointed out that Tomb Raider orientation for us.
