English version


15-Nov-2004 -- Hurra, mein erster Tripelpunkt! Drei Confluencepunkte an einem Tag. Ein Erstbesuch auf 41N 36E und zwei Zweitbesuche auf 41N 35E und hier auf 41N 34E.

Hier wären auch drei Erstbesuche gut möglich gewesen, da die beiden Zweitbesuche so dicht an der Hauptstraße von Gerede nach Samsun liegen. Dieser Punkt 41N 34E ist der Einfachste von allen meinen Punkten. Er sei jedem zum Besuchen nur empfohlen. Außerdem gibt es dort sehr leckere Äpfel. Nicola, mit der ich die meisten Punkte zusammen gemacht habe und die ich bei den Bergpunkten ganz schön antreiben musste, hätte ihn geliebt.

Man verlässt bei der Bäckerei die Hauptstraße, fährt einen Kilometer weiter, parkt am alten Haus und nach ein paar Metern ist man auf dem Punkt. Nicola sei dieser Punkt gewidmet und es wäre schön, mit ihr einmal wieder einen Punkt zu machen. Von hier aus viele Grüße an Nicola.

15-Nov-2004 -- Hooray, my first "triple point"! Three confluence points in a single day. A first visit at 41N 36E and two second visits at 41N 35E and here at 41N 34E. Here three first visits would have been well possible, as the two second visits are so close to the main road from Gerede to Samsun. This confluence point 41N 34E is the easiest one of all my points. A visit can be highly recommended to everybody. Besides you find very tasty apples there. Nicola, with whom I did most of my points and who I usually had to egg on quite a bit when we did confluence points in the mountains, would have loved it.

You leave the main road at the bakery, carry on for one kilometre, park at the old house, and after a few metres you are at the confluence point. I would like to dedicate this confluence point to Nicola and it would be nice to do another point with her again sometime. Many greetings from here to Nicola.

Coordinator's Note: There is now enough evidence based on the other visits to this Confluence that the visitor did not get to the WGS84 confluence as required. The Confluence is obviously located on a steep slope overlooking a valley, not on a plain. Most probably he had his GPS receiver set to another map datum. Therefore this visit had to become downgraded to "incomplete" subsequently.
