08-Jun-2000 -- Was in Europe for the Belgian 3 Days orienteering event. Decided to fly into the Bailiwick of Guernsey in the English Channel to recover from the jetlag and then work my way across France to the event.

Managed to hit 48N 2W on the way in Brittany, France. It was pretty simple, set a waypoint and drive in as close as possible, then go in on foot. One of my maps showed a road running about 100m north of the confluence, but I couldn't find that road, so I came in from the south from about 700m out.

Had to fight through a bit of brambles and overgrown fields and mud and the like, but got twin triple zeros right on the edge of a small pond. Was a bit worried the point would be in the pond, which would have been a drag.

The pond, with another behind it, is to the south, with fields in all other directions. Turns out the road was 100m to the north, which at least made it easier to get out.
