#1: Confluence location

(visited by Ole Henseler)

22-Jun-2009 -- After the visits of 51N-07E and 51N-06E in Germany the same morning, I arrived at this location in Belgium by noon. I had taken a small road through the Netherlands to Belgium and about 1.5 km away from the confluence, I left this road as I thought I had to follow the way next to the small river Demer. But the road ended in very high grass about 800 m away from the confluence.

I returned to the main road and stopped two kilometers later in a westerly direction. There I found a path through the meadows to the confluence. High nettles and thistles made it almost impossible to arrive at the confluence but finally I made it... I continued my trip towards Brussels to visit 51N-04E at the same evening.
