#1: 698 meters from the confluence point

(visited by John Dag Hutchison and Aase Tveitan Hutchison)

22-May-2008 -- No point in trying this confluence point if you are just passing by. It turned out to be in a military area. The security people at the gate were polite enough and told us only people with permits could enter. As we later found out only one cp hunter had been to the actual point. He had really done his time consuming home work with applying for entry permit etc.

So we settled for a photo of the gate about 698 meters from the cp. And a photo of the GPS. We forgot to take a photo of all the rabbits just inside the fences....

Coordinator's Note: As the only CP hunter to actually get to the point, then I can only agree with this visitor. Turning up and hoping to get on base is a waste of time. If anyone is seriously considering trying for this point then contact me directly for some tactics you can try. If you are not a UK citizen then your chances of getting there are zero.
