06-Nov-2013 -- Viene de 50°N 6°E.

Estando de vacaciones en Europa para visitar a mi hijo, como todo cazador de confluencia aproveché la oportunidad y visité 12 confluencias (una incompleta) incluyendo una en Francia no visitada hasta la fecha.

Tomamos la carretera CR326 hacia el Este, en Marnach cambiamos a la carretera N10. Cruzamos la frontera hacia Alemania en Dosberbreck, pasando el rio Our que sirve de frontera entre Luxemburgo y Alemania en esta zona. Ya en Alemania circulamos por la carretera B410, y la primera población que pasamos es Dasburg, mas adelante Karlshausen, Breitbach, Krautscheid, Plütscheid y finalmente entramos a la autopista A60, una via en excelente condiciones y sin límite de velocidad para ir mas rápido.

No obstante, la lluvia no nos permitía andar lo rápido que quería, para recuperar algo del tiempo invertido en las vías previas. La sensatez y precaución se hicieron presentes y a pesar de que algunos súper carros nos pasaban, mantuvimos buen ritmo y logramos recuperar tiempo dentro del plan del día de hoy.

En la cercanía de Wittlich salimos de la A60 y tomamos carretera L141, pasamos el pueblo y tomamos la L55 hasta Urzig donde giramos al norte en la carretera L56 la cual nos llevaría directamente a la confluencia.

Estacione el carro a un costado de la carretera a solo 20 mts de la confluencia. Ya no llovía y la temperatura era unos agradables 12°C, procedí a caminar hasta la confluencia y en esta oportunidad la famosa Danza de la Confluencia fue algo larga ya que la recepción de los satélites era dificultada por los arboles del bosque y la fuerte nubosidad del día. Tomé las fotos de rigor y continuamos viaje hacia el próximo objetivo del día.

La secuencia de casería de confluencias continúa en 49°N 7°E.

06-Nov-2013 -- Comes from 50°N 6°E.

Been on vacation in Europe to visit my son, as every confluence hunter I took the opportunity and visited 12 Confluences (one incomplete) including one in France not visited so far.

We took the road CR326 eastward, in Marnach switched to road N10. We crossed the border into Germany on Dosberbreck, passing Our river that serves as a border between Luxembourg and Germany in this area. In Germany we circulated on B410 road, the first town we passed was Dasburg, later Karlshausen, Breitbach, Krautscheid, Plutscheid and finally entered the motorway A60, a super highway in excellent conditions and without limit of speed to go more quickly.

However, the rain did not allow us go as fast as we would like to regain some of the time spent in previous routes. Common sense and caution were present and while some super cars passed us, we had good pace and we were able to recover time within the plan today.

In the vicinity of Wittlich we got off from A60, took road L141, passed the village and took the L55 to Ürzig where we turned north on the L56 road which would lead us directly to the Confluence.

We parked the car beside the road at only 20 meters from the Confluence. It was not raining and the temperature was a pleasant 12°C, we proceeded to walk to the Confluence and on this occasion the famous Confluence Dance was somewhat longer as satellite reception was hampered by the trees of the forest and the strong cloudiness of the day. I took the pictures and continued our journey towards the next goal of the day.

Confluence hunting sequence continues at 49°N 7°E.
