#1: location of cp 51N-12E

(visited by Thomas Barthel and arius9)

06-Mar-2009 -- This Degree Confluence Point ‘51N-12E’ is located inside a garden. A ‘private property’ sign next to an unpaved way around it tells you this very clear.

Nobody was there and everything was very quiet. Maybe the house and the garden are in use only on weekends. On half the way around the property we found a wooden door which was unlocked. I opened it and started my search. Soon I found the famous wall with the old chair, which is seen on several other CP pictures from the past. It began to drizzle and in addition to this it was quite chilly, round about six degrees Celsius.

So I started the confluence ‘dance’ to have the wanted picture from the gps-devices. All the time I had to dry the camera, the gps mouse and the smart phone. Unfortunately it was not possible to me to find the zero for the east coordinate. It could be that it was caused by the really bad weather and the only three satellites with a good SNR.

So I was not very happy and told myself to visit this one again. I will do that in this summer, but only during good weather. After the pictures of the cardinals we went back to the car which was parked on the dead end of the paved road.
