01-Aug-2011 -- The morning after visiting 48N-07E I packed my tent and departed in the direction East via Munster to Colmar. It was very busy in Colmar and I don’t like busy towns so I went on to Neuf-Brisach. For the next town I had to cross the river Rhine, which is also the border between France and Germany: Breisach-am-Rhein. Then I followed Bundesstrasse 31 over 30 km, passing by Freiburg-im-Breisgau. Taking the L127 for about 7 km over Stegen and Eschbach brought me to Obertal at about 500m from the DCP. There is a bus stop where you can park.
The DCP is easy to find. Cross the road and climb to the old farm and a newly built house with house number 6A. At the left side (East) of the house is a country road leading directly to the DCP if you keep thinking “if you go left you go right”.
The actual DCP is at the edge of the road, at a location where recently a number of trees have been cut. Never the less the remaining trees (fir) reduced the accuracy of the GPS to 14-m. The slope of the terrain in all directions is steep to very steep. North, East, South and West.
Some meters further on the road gives a magnificent, typical “Schwarzwald”, view. The bus stop is at about 500m, behind the central group of trees, and about 100-m lower. The antipode image is taken from the start of this trip by foot.
I enjoyed a camper’s picnic and left for a camping near Freudenstad at 60-km north-west to meet my eldest son (also a DCP-hunter) and family, returning from the south-west of France. The L186 over Sint Peter leads to Waldkirch. It is beautiful but with steep parts and a lot of curves and hairpin curves. Halfway at 1200-m altitude (48.0651°N 8.0162°E) is suddenly a lot of business. Here you see parafoil flyers and delta gliders taking advantage of the wide valley of Waldkirch about 900-m below.
Arriving at the camping there is no place available. I found another camp site at Alpirsbach (48.3566°N 8.4120°E). In Alpirsbach is a brewery with very tasty beer!
