(visited by Thomas Barthel)

25-Jul-2014 --

Three confluence points are located on the island of Sardinia, which is associated to Italy. During the summer holidays I took the chance to visit all of it. The first visit took place at the southern end of the island. The visited CP 39N-09E is located at the suburbia of Pula, which is only 25 km away of Cagliari, the biggest city of Sardinia.

Coming from north I parked the car at the via Porrino, opposite the stadium "A.S.D. Calcio Pula". It was about 6 pm., still very hot and very quiet in this residential area. By foot I took the Via G. Dessi and after about 110m I was already in front of the house No. 14 with the CP on its area.

The GPS showed 10m distance to the CP, which is located at the roof of a garage. The ramp down to the garage is seen on the picture of the location. I asked the landlord for access, but he quite strictly refused, even after explaining the background of the DCP-project. Okay, so I did the pictures some meters away from his gate. The picture of GPS reading was done at a distance of 17m to the CP. On my way back I walked around the block along Via G. Cima and saw the rear of the confluence-house. At luck there is a building gap so that I could near the CP up to 14 m.

So the visit was finished after only a few minutes and the trip continued west and northwest, along the coast, the next CP visit at 40N-09E already in mind.
