#1: Overview

(visited by Karl Bryk and Michael Bryk)

20-Sep-2015 -- This is visit number 4 in a sequence of 15 visits made while on a road trip with my son Michael.

The previous is 51N 11E.

We arrived near the CP at 15:30, with light rain coming down. We parked down from the CP in a parking place by the main road. We could have driven closer to the CP but it would have only saved us a few minutes walk, and at the bottom of the road leading up towards the CP it was not obvious that there was a place to park.

There followed a pleasant walk (without rain) along a track arriving at the CP sign, by the side of the field approximately 40 m from the CP. Since there was a crop in the field we decided not to try and get closer. And besides that it looked quite muddy.

We took the usual photos and returned a few minutes later at the car and headed for 51N 9E.
