#1: The Confluence from 20 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

09-Jun-2018 -- This is the 6th out of 12 reports reaching confluence points in Poland. The story starts at 52°N 21°E and continues from 53°N 18°E.

After 98 minutes driving time, we had reached the confluence location coming from the neighbouring confluence in the west. We parked at an open yard of a farm and walked along the road to visit the confluence. We only got to a distance of 90 m until we were stopped by a huge wheat field. It would have made damage to the crops to walk closer. Therefore, we documented the confluence and went back towards the car.

But then I realized that 90 m can be a lot. We walked on tracks to the next parallel road and indeed found that the confluence was right at that road. We could have driven exactly to the spot. The confluence is just 5 m south of that road on a little patch of unused land with dandelions and short grass on it. It is quite special, because almost every square meter of land is used for agricultural purpose in this area.
