#1: Property with confluence point

(visited by Andrzej Izwaryn)

25-Nov-2000 -- Site: Village Podlesie Jankowice near Pszczyna, 3 km east of Pszczyna.

I start my expedition from Bytom in Silesia. It was a simple plan - visit waypoint N50 E019. I drove in by national road no. 1 south- from Katowice to Pszczyna. About 1 km before Pszczyna I turned left into the road to Bierun. After 2 km, turn right along Dokawa river. Next 200m and the lane curved round to the right. It was very closely to my waypoint. I stopped my car, and shortly in front of me I saw a gate. Closed of course. Beyond it was a black dog. So, it's the finish of my exploration. Zero point is 20 metres further on private property (pic. 1 and 3). It's Zlote Lany no. 99 street. On the second side of this property is Dokawa river valley and some swamps.
