(visited by David Coombs)

29-Jun-2005 -- I was on a mission - to visit as many opoints as possible on the 51N line - I started at 51N 14E.

From 9E to 8E there is no motorway and the journey seemed very slow. In fact it took about 2 hours. The point lies to the east of the road up to the Kindelsberg from Littfeld and following signs for the restaurant will take you as close as you can get.

Again the forest was thick and the GPS unresponsive but I did get all the zeros – briefly. Too briefly for the photo – never mind! On to the next.

Continued at 51N 7E

Coordinator's Note: I would like to add that the Degree Confluence Project is *not* a competition and while I understand the reasons behind trips such as this one I would caution against driving for 18 hours without rest stops or someone to share the driving with.
