#1: PANORAMIC VIEW TO NORTH AND EAST

(visited by Alfredo B. Remon Mendez and Alfredo Angel Remon)

English

29-Ago-2010 --

Viene de 50°N 03°E.

Alegres por las 3 visitas realizadas hasta el momento, tomamos nuevamente la carretera D917 hacia el sur y en la población de Péronne giramos a la derecha en la N17 y posteriormente a la izquierda en la D149. En Cléry-Sur-Somme giramos a la derecha en la carretera D938 hasta llegar a las afueras de Albert en la intercepción con la D929 giramos hacia la izquierda.

Al encontrarnos en la intercepción con la N25 antes de llegar a Amiens, giramos a la derecha y posteriormente nos conectamos con la autopista N1 por donde continuamos nuestro camino para luego girar a la izquierda en la D49. Pasamos por la población de LaChaussée-Tirancourt y al llegar a Picquigny tomamos la carretera D3 hacia el este. Atravesamos la población de Hangest-Sur-Somme, Condé-Folie y en Longpré-Les-Corps-Saints nos metimos en la vía rural D70 la cual sube una ligera loma y encontramos unas praderas sembradas a cada lado de la vía y la confluencia a nuestra izquierda.

Caminamos escasos 50 mts y la podíamos ver los ceros con facilidad en el GPS. Tomamos las fotos requeridas y procedimos con una corta celebración comiéndonos un delicioso melón antes de emprender el retorno a Paris. Toda la vía de regreso a Paris fue con una fuerte lluvia y antes de llegar a la casa de mi hijo llenamos el tanque de combustible del carro con 49 euros luego de recorrer mas de 700 Km. Ya en casa celebramos con una buena comida caliente, la cacería de 4 confluencias por la campiña norteña francesa.

Comes from 50°N 03°E.

Happy for the 3 successful visits so far, we took again the D917 road southward and at Péronne town turned right at N17 and subsequently left in the D149. In Cléry-sur-Somme we turned right on the road D938 and at surroundings of Albert city at the junction with the D929 turned left.

Once we found the interception with the N25 before Amiens, we turned right and then we connected with highway N1 where we continued our way to later turned left in the D49. We passed by LaChaussée-Tirancourt town and when we arrived Picquigny we took D3 road eastwards. We are going through the population of Hangest-sur-Somme, Condé-Folie and in Longpré-I-Corps-Saints we get in the rural route D70 which rises a slight hill and we found a few meadows planted on each side of the road and our target CP at our left.

Just a walk of about 50 meters and we could see easily all the zeros in the GPS. We took the required pictures and proceeded with a short celebration eating a delicious melon start our before return to Paris. All the way back to Paris we face a heavy rain and before arrive at my son’s house, we filled the tank up with 49 Euros after more than 700 km. Already at home, we celebrate with a good hot food, the hunting of 4 confluences by the northern French countryside.
