25-May-2002 -- On the way to Valencia from Madrid to attend a wedding I made this Confluence Point that not yet had been done. Since it was only 600 meters away the highway I thought that it would do it in a short time, the reality is that the destiny had put the point in the highest part of a hill very inclined and I waste a lot of time to reach it. Thus I arrived late at the wedding. When I was in the hardest part of the slope the GPS began to give erroneous readings, displaying that I was only 40 meters from the point when the reality was 140 meters. I suppose that multipath was creating a great confusion in the receiver.

Finally I arrived at the point from where there was a good view of the valley. I dedicate this CP to Esther and Angel that this day married.

25-Mayo-2002 -- Hice este punto de confluencia en el camino de Madrid a Valencia donde asisría a una boda. Dado que el punto estaba a poco más de 600 m,etros de la carretera pensé que lo haría en muy poco tiempo. Sin embargo el destino había puesto el punto en punto más alto de un cuestarro, así gasté demadiado tiempo en hacer el punto y llegué tarde a la boda. En la parte más pendiente de la subida el GPS comenzó a darte lecturas malas y me indicaba que estaba a sólo 40 metros cuando eran 140. Supongo que el multipath estaba haciendo de las suyas.

Desde el punto había un buiena vista del valle. Dedico el punto a Esther y Angel que se casaron este día.
