17-Dec-2000 -- A sunny Sunday, a good opportunity for visiting our second confluence point.

70 Km north of Barcelona is a short trip. We found the place with no pain. N42°00'00.0 E002°00'00.0, 5m inside a wheat field. The car is parked 300m from the point. Time 12:15 altitude: 708m.

We decided to visit a beautiful geodesic point near there to check the accuracy of the GPS.

The result, in Camprodon, was 3.5m difference. Not bad.

We enjoyed the day and we will try other points again.
