11-Jun-2005 -- We got by electric train from Kiev to nearest station Khutor-Mikhaylovskiy. GPS has shown direct distance to point not more 8 km. But there was very dark so we decided to visit confluence point in the morning. We went to nearest coniferous forest and set up camp.

Early in the morning we went to the confluence point. We discovered that the point was located in the middle of very thickset forest. And unfortunaly my GPS can not achieve consistent receipt of satellites signals. So we can not define location precisely than 6 meters. And we can not catch, only and

So we mark this visit as incomplete

Coordinator's Note: The combination of the 6m accuracy and the 6.4m distance from the confluence is less than 13 meters, so although the visitors may not consider this a successful visit, the project does... :)
