(visited by Fred Martin)

19-May-2001 -- I was (with my girlfriend Marie) in the region on the occasion of a travel between Ardèche (for holiday) and Belgium, our home country.

We reached the point easily about 10.40 local time (08.40 GMT) the 19th of May 2001 with my GPS12 from Garmin.

The confluence is in the middle of the vegetable garden of a private property! The house is occupied by two families. The first one of Mr. Pierre DEFAY and the second one of Mr. Bernard REY.

The address is "Rue de l'Estrade" in the small village of F-43260 LANTRIAC in the French Departement of HAUTE-LOIRE.

This experience was very exciting at equal distance from North Pole and Equator!
