Finally we stopped at the southern boundary of the village of Hněvošice (Schreibersdorf), close to the village name plate (pic#2). We made the experience that the spot was not on the western side of the road as shown by MapQuest as well as on a local road map. Proofed with two GPS we found the confluence about 10 m to the east (pic#3). It seems that something went wrong with the geographical survey. Due to the dense forest it was difficult to pinpoint the ZERO-position.
We continued to the west to our next target
