(visited by Sedat ACIL)

30-Aug-2004 -- We reached the Confluence after a 3 hours' trip by car from the nearest town. We navigated on a rough area - on half way, there was nothing that could be defined as a road. The area had received heavy rain showers a week before we left for it, so the worst part was when we got stuck terribly in the mud in two places.

The GPS receiver lead us to a maize/cornfield, which made it all the more difficult for us, since we did not want to damage the crops. We went till the end of the field but we still weren't on the confluence spot, so we followed the GPS receiver into a forest.

But due to the thick vegetation in the forest, the GPS receiver lost it's connection with the satellites. And we didn't want to put our lives to risk, since the forest we were in is known to home a high population of boars and wolves, therefore we got out of the forest and stayed midway between the forest and the maize/cornfield. That's why we have a deviation of about 160 m.

Coordinator's Note: Instead of the geodetic datum WGS84, which is required for the DCP, the visitor had his GPS receiver set for the datum European1950. This means, the GPS picture was taken at a distance of 172 m SE of the WGS84 confluence point, thus leading to a classification as "incomplete" visit.
