06-Dec-2000 -- Two weeks after hearing about confluence.org,
my wife Nicole and I decided to try our nearest point, N42 E3. It's the first point in
Catalonia and in Spain to be attempted.
Wednesday 6 December 2.000 (holiday in Spain)
The confluence is located in Corçà, Baix Empordà, Catalunya, Spain.
The journey wasn't difficult. We stopped our car 500m from the point, walked
inside a small forest, crossed a small dry river and, as the GPS
marked 50m to go, found a wheat field. Since it's now winter, we walked
around to find the closest side in order not to destroy the field walking on it.
It was 13:00 UT 14:00 local time.
Our etrex marked N42º00’00.0, E003º00’00.0, 92m with a distance of
1.55 meters to the destination.
Thirty minutes later we were eating in a local restaurant. We spent the
afternoon buying pottery in the nearest village La Bisbal d’Empordà.
We had a good day and we decided that this won't be our last confluence.
