#1: View to N54E13, the last undiscovered cp in Germany, from West

(visited by Andreas Golze)

05-Jun-2001 -- On June 5th 2001, after a long holiday-weekend in Germany, we had 1 more holiday, and my family decided to visit the "Museum of the Seas" in the beautiful town of Stralsund. I'm not a big fan of museums, and so we made an agreement: First my family come with me to a confluence point, after this I come with them to the museum. So we drove to the East, in order to find the last "undiscovered" confluence point in Germany.

After 1 hour drive and only 1 km away from the point, I had to leave my family in the car, because the way was ending and I had to continue the search by feet. Crossing a little wood from South to North, I had to get over a stream before reaching a meadow. On the left side I saw some cows on the horizon, but according to my GPS I had to go right. After some 100 meters, just at the end of the meadow, the GPS shows the magic coordinates "N54.00000, E13.00000".

The last confluence point in Germany was detected! No more secrets! The next problem was to mark the point for possible future visitors. From inside the wood I took a raised hide and put it exactly on the point. It's now very comfortable to stay at this cp for a while, viewing the meadow, but what will the hunter say? When I was able to breath again, I shot some photos in a hurry, because my family was waiting since nearly 1 hour in the car!

I reached them after 90 minutes, but with my words: "Let's make a photo of you for the Internet!" everything was O.K. again. And the museum? It was better than I thought!
