#1: The Confluence from 20 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

09-Jun-2018 -- This is the 8th out of 12 reports reaching confluence points in Poland. The story starts at 52°N 21°E and continues from 53°N 20°E.

After 75 minutes driving time, we had reached the confluence location coming from the neighbouring confluence in the west. We parked our vehicle in 100 m distance, but had to circumvent a wheat field to reach the confluence. This way, we came through a pine forest. Just 20 m from the confluence we encountered piles of garbage - as far as I can tell consisting of auto parts.

Reaching the confluence was simple, because it is located right at the edge of a wheat field. We could document the confluence exactly at the zero point without the need to step into the field.
