(visited by Christoph Marquardt)

19-Aug-2005 -- Friday after finishing work I decided to visit a confluence point myself. The highway B 87 (german: Bundesstraße) took me straight into the area of the CP.

Heading from Frankfurt (Oder) I passed a little village called Trebatsch. This is the place where the famous Australian Explorer Ludwig Leichhardt came from. When I arrived the village Biebersdorf my GPS indicated me that I already passed the CP.I turned around at the signpost at the beginning of the village. The CP is 1.68 km from this signpost away.

I drove back and started my walk through the forest. As I knew from previous visits the CP is in a forest. The CP is in the little wood. I had to walk straight into the little wood which was quite unpleasant because branches gnats and spider webs were annoying me.

Luckily I didn't have to do a zero dance. Suddenly my gps indicated me that I had arrived the CP.

I then took the remaining photo's North, me at the CP. The sun watching the CP, and looking South.
