(visited by Andrzej Izwaryn)

27-May-2001 -- Speaking frankly, I was afraid it would be hard to get to this point. From my map it seemed it is 2 kilometers from nearest road. Fortunately it was quite easy. From village Tuchla I turned south (as pointed by my GPS), through a bridge and it turned out that a road of big concrete plates runs through the field, most probably dating back to a past cooperative times. Pass some buildings, some turns, all the time on conctere plates until 60 meters from the confluence. Plates finish here (see photo 1) close to zero point. Now through a huuuge field, on which a corn grew last year, fortunately nothing grows now. A small walk, couple of photos (photo 2) and that would be all. Between the confluence and Tuchla there is a cemetery (photo 4) dating back to May 1915, from eastern front of World War I.

Szczerze mowiac obawialem sie troche jak sie na ten punkt dostac. Z mapy wynikalo, ze jest jakies dwa kilometry od najblizszej drogi twardej. Na szczescie bylo niezle. We wsi Tuchla zkrecilem na poludnie (tako rzekl GPS), przejechalem przez mostek i okazalo sie, ze przez pole, wielkie chyba po PGRze, ulozone sa betonowe plyty prawie dokladnie w strone przeciecia. Jeszcze tylko jakies zabudowania, kilka zakretow, dalej plyty, tak a¿ 60m do przeciecia. Plyty sie skonczyly co widac na pic.01 calkiem niedaleko od punktu zero. Teraz wieeelkie pole, na ktorym w zeszlym roku rosla kukurydza. W tym na szczescie nic nie roslo. Maly spacerek,pamiatkowa fotografia pic.02, i to by by³o na tyle. Pomiedzy przecieciem i wsia Tuchla znajduje siê cmentarz (pic.04) z maja 1915 roku, wtedy by³ tu front wschodni.
