08-Jun-2000 -- Was in Europe for the Belgian 3 Days
orienteering event. Decided to fly into the Bailiwick of Guernsey in the
English Channel to recover from the jetlag and then work my way across
France to the event.
Managed to hit 48N 2W on the way in Brittany, France. It was
pretty simple, set a waypoint and drive in as close as possible, then go
