(visited by Aristotelis Bletsas)

27-Aug-2003 -- During our vacations, my wife had the idea to visit a monastery (called Proussos) somewhere in the central Greece, 35 km SW to Karpenissi city. I knew that position 39 degrees North – 22 degrees East, had not been visited, so I agreed with the condition to try to reach the confluence. The whole idea made her and her family very enthusiastic, since it was something unknown to them and the possibility of visiting this special mark excited them.

The weather was fickle and almost rainy. In our way back from the monastery, we were driving from Karpenissi to Domokos. Nearby to Makrakomi town we turned left following the road to Rovollari village. Having our eyes to GPS indications, we had to decide our route every time we were in a road junction. After turning around the mountains for a half-hour, we left the cars and walked to the nearest possible to the confluence position. The accuracy -according to the GPS device- was about 88 meters. Everyone was hoping to read on the GPS display the exact “cross-point”, but the rain forced us to compromise our expectations. The confluence seemed to be about 40 meters lower than the road level and the slope of the ground was big enough to climb down without any rope or climbing tools.
