(visited by Henk Pouwels)

28-May-2008 -- Being well prepared and equipped with maps and Google Earth images I found myself with my car along the Neumünster Strasse ( = road ) between the villages Boostedt and Grossenaspe only 350 m from the DCP. But this spot was the entrance of a military area. I presented me at the gate and explained to the guards that I liked to visit a special geographic position just opposite the military area. After some chatting they allowed me to park the car at the parking lot just outside the fences.

From the parked car an agricultural road leads straight to the DCP. As can be seen in the detailed section the DCP is almost at the intersection of this road and a ditch marked in brown in picture 6. The general photograph is taken from the ditch in the direction of the road.

The N, E, S, W photographs show an area with fields with corn and flocks of forest around. The military area is at the horizon of the East looking image, look careful for the buildings just left of the large tree. Returned to the gate I donated my Google Earth images to the guards.

This DCP also has Some flowers.
