(visited by Karl Bryk and Michael Bryk)

06-Aug-2020 -- This the thirteenth of 14 CP visits made during a road trip through the Czech republic and Germany.

The previous is N52 E12.

The next is N50 E12.

A couple of hours later, around 17:00, we found ourselves at the end of the road, literally, near the Weisse Elster river, about 65 metres from the CP. Our progress was blocked by a garden fence. We got out the car and were in the process of taking a look for possibilities to get to the CP when we were approached by someone who had come from behind a caravan parked at the edge of the garden. He mumbled something about it being private property and initially I understood that he said it was private but we would be allowed in. But he repeated himself and it became clear I had misheard and we would not be allowed in. This conversation was sealed with an 'Alles klar !!'.

Alles klar !!

Subsequently having read other visitors reports maybe we could have negotiated but as it was within 100 metres it did not matter. We took the necessary photos and headed off to find location for the last night of our road trip. We ended up in Rehau, not far from our final CP which we would tackle the next day.
