#1: Confluence is in this crop - W tej pszenicy jest przeciecie

(visited by Andrzej Izwaryn)

27-May-2001 -- It is easiest to get there from road number 17 Warszawa - Lublin - Zamosc. About 20 kms before Krasnystaw there is a road to the right with a markpost towards Krzywe. Turn here and after few kilometers in a village Majdan Krzywski GPS shows you should turn left between houses. It is time to leave the seat and continue by foot. We pass through the farmstead. There is a 'beware of dog' sign, but fortunately no dog. Behind the buildings (photo 3) you should walk about 60 meters on the baulk. Unfortunately the point is on the field in the crop seen on photo 1. If it weren't for the owner walking behind me, interested in my search I would maybe go into the crop... I had 30 meters to go (photo 2). You can reach the very point in autumn, after the harvest. I wanted to read the possesion number from a plate, but unfortunately the plate was placed just after WW II and is, well, somehow illegible.

Naj³atwiej tam trafiæ z drogi nr 17 Warszawa-Lublin-Zamosc. Okolo 20 km przed Krasnymstawem jest droga w prawo przy ktorej stoi drogowskaz do miejscowosci Krzywe. Skrecamy tam i po kilku kilometrach we wsi Majdan Krzywski GPS pokazuje ¿e trzeba skrecic w lewo pomiedzy domy. Teraz pora opuscic fotel i dalej piechota. Przechodzimy przez zagrody. Jest wprawdzie napis "Zly pies" ale na szczescie psa nie ma. Z tylu za zabudowaniami (pic.3) trzeba przejsc jeszcze 60m miedza pomiedzy zagonami. Niestety punkt przeciecia wychodzi w tym zbozu co go na pic.01 widac. Gdyby gospodarz nie stal z tylu, zaciekawiony moimi poszukiwaniami to moze i poszedlbym w szkode... a tak zosta³o 30m (pic.02). Na sam punkt mozna bedzie wejsc jesienia, po zniwach. Chcialem przeczytac numer posesji gospodarza z tabliczki, ale niestety tabliczke powiesili chyba zaraz po wojnie i niestety - troche jakby nieczytelna.
