#1: Location of Confluence Point

(visited by Thomas Barthel)

14-Mar-2009 --

The Confluence Point ‘51N-10E’ is located quite close to the motorway A4 (round about eight kilometers).

I planned to visit this one on my way to my relatives near Darmstadt. I had to take the turn off ‘Wildeck Obersuhl’ and to pass the village Richelsdorf, located about 4 km north from the motorway. After about another four km north from that village I found a suitable parking area left side next to the road and started my confluence walk over the fields.

It was very muddy but at luck quite warm and sunny. Only some cars were passing the road and didn’t take notice of mine. After round about 400 meters walk and many macro-shots with my camera I was lucky to see the two zeros behind the seconds for north AND east on my mobile! The confluence-dance took me about five minutes only. That was a fast one, compared with my experiences from the ones before. Now I took the photos of the four directions and the location. Thanks to a little creek next to the parking area I had the opportunity to clean my shoes from the mud.

On my way back to the motorway I wanted to buy some food in Richelsdorf but unfortunately everything was closed until half past two pm., so I continued my journey a little bit hungry - but lucky to have my fifth visit of a Confluence Point!
