#1: The Confluence is edge of the forest

(visited by Walter Schmied and Karol Golias)

10-Feb-2001 -- The third point I have visited is located in Slovakia, the country where my wife comes from. Nearby (3 km) is the border to the Czech Republic. I could drive my car with my brother-in-law until we were 700 m away, then we walked shortly through the forest and after crossing the meadow the point was easy to find.
