#1: Overview

(visited by Karl Bryk and Michael Bryk)

06-Aug-2020 -- This the twelfth of 14 CP visits made during a road trip through the Czech republic and Germany.

The previous is N52 E11.

The next is N51 E12.

At 14:40ish after an uneventful trip we found ourselves about 100 metres from the CP. I was a little concerned about getting to the CP as any maps I used (google maps, maps.me, openmaps) seemed to show some sort of shunting yard with many railway lines to cross. So we walked through the grass and bushes, quickly realising that there were no railway lines anymore, just the skeletons of the previous location of the railway sleepers. Around 30 metres from the CP we came across a thicket of something spikey and I managed to cut my arms and legs trying to get to the field behind the thicket. Michael refused to follow me in my attempt so I decided that 30 or so metres was good enough and came back out from the thicket. Walking along the edge of the thicket to get a close as possible to th CP I spotted what looked like a tentative trail to the field behind and indeed this lead, with a little bit of effort and crawling, to the field. Even Michael followed me.

Photos were taken and we returned via the same route and headed off to the last CP of the day.
