#1: mosquito confluence - komarowe przeciecie

(visited by Andrzej Izwaryn)

14-May-2001 -- I drove road number 10 from Bydgoszcz. The road runs on a north side of Notec river valley. In Poborka village I turned south towards Notec. I crossed the river in Szamocin and then turned right towards Chodziez. There is a signpost in the forrest towards Laskowo. I followed it, left cozy tramac and drove into forrest. After four kilometers both on sand and narrow tarmac I turned left following directions of my guide (a GPS device). Now it turned really narrow, road run through a mirror, then some shallow ravine, forrest, and after a kilometre again turn left. Now about 300 meters of a wide forrest road and STOP. It is here, about 30 meters right from a road is the 53N 017E (photo 1). Those 30 meters without the car were quite painfull because of swarms of mosquitos for which I was an easy and the only available source of nourishment. Some more photos, the zero point is next to the tree with a white line seen on photo 2. Remainder of forrest show a clearing near the confluence.

Jecha³em tam droga nr 10 od strony Bydgoszczy. Droga biegnie polnocnym skrajem doliny Noteci. We wsi Poborka skrecilem na poludnie w strone Noteci. Po przejechaniu przez rzeke w miasteczku Szamocin skrecilem w prawo w kierunku na Chodziez. W pewnym miejscu w lesie znajduje sie drogowskaz do miejscowosci Laskowo. Tutaj zgodnie z jego wskazaniem opuscilem przytulny asfalt i pograzylem sie w lesie. Po przejechaniu ok 4 km na przemian po piasku i waskim asfalcie skrecilem w lewo zgodnie z zaleceniami mego przewodnika (GPS'a). Teraz stalo sie calkiem wasko, droga przez lake, potem jakis plytki jar, las i znowu po kilometrze w lewo. Teraz ok 300 metrow szerokiej przecinki i STOP. To juz tu, 30 metrow w prawo od drogi punkt 53N017E pic.1 Te 30 metrow bez samochodu bylo dosc bolesne ze wzgledu na roje komarow dla ktorych stanowilem latwy i jedyny w okolicy pokarm. Jeszcze kilka zdjec, obok tego drzewa z biala linia na pic.2 lezy wlasnie punkt zerowy. Pozostale zdjecia pokazuja zrab w okolicy tego punktu.
