18 Maja 2001 -- Z drogi numer 8 Warszawa-Wroclaw skrecilem w okolicy wsi Zawady w kierunku na zachod droga numer 70 do Skierniewic i Lowicza. Zjazd ten znajduje siê tuz przy skrzyzowaniu drogi nr 8 z magistrala kolejowa na Slask. Teraz trzymalem siê drogi nr 70 az za Skierniewice. Tutaj w miejscowosci Belchow droga glowna skrecila w prawo, a ja w lewo, ale dalej asfaltem. Az moj GPS pokazal odleglosc od przeciecia 800m.

Juz mialem opuscic samochod gdy po prawej stronie ukazal sie lesny dukt, dokladnie w tym kierunku ktory pokazywal GPS. Wjechalem tam i z radoscia spogladalem na zmniejszajaca sie odleglosc do punktu przeciecia. Kiedy pozostalo 150m GPS kazal skrecic mi w prawo, w zagajnik sosnowy. Tym razem musialem zaufac swoim nogom, nie bylo jednak daleko. Po przejsciu ok 50 m wyszedlem na teren porosniety mlodymi sosenkami (fot3) Jeszcze kilka krokow i jest 52N020E (fot1).

Punkt okazal sie lekki latwy i przyjemny. Jeszcze kilka zdjec i mozna wracac, cale szczescie bo wlasnie zaczela sie burza (nie wiem czy to widac na zdjeciach), ale zdazylem nie zmoknac.

18-May-2001 -- From road 8 Warszawa - Wroclaw, near Zawada village I turned west into road 70 towards Skierniewice and Lowicz. Exit point is just near a crossing of road 8 and a major train line to Silesia. I stayed on road 70 until past Skierniewice. In Belchow the main road turned right and I turned left, but still on asphalt. I drove that road untill my GPS shoved 800 meters to the confluence.

I was about to leave my car when I saw a forrest road on right side. I turned into it and joyfully looked at decreasing distance towards my goal. When I had 150 meters left my GPS ordered me to turn right into a pine scrub. I had to trust my legs byt fortunately it was not far. After about 50 meters I entered a wide opening covered with young pines (photo 3). Few more steps and here it is 52N020E (photo 1).

This point turned out to be easy and nice. Some more photos and I can return. Right in time, because a thunderstorm just begun (I do not know if you can see it on the photos), but I managed not to get wet.
