#1: Standing on 50°N 24°E, looking north

(visited by Peter Sugden, Yevhen and Vadim)

23-Feb-2003 -- On a fine Sunday morning, three of us got together and drove out of L'viv, Ukraine, in anticipation of our first confluence. Road traffic was clear, and we turned in the road to Mervychi, Ukraine. We were able to approach by car to within 250 metres of the confluence, which was located in a depression spot of a farm field, probably either sunflowers or corn. Snow cover of 3-20 centimetres covered the ground, and the -6 degree weather made the snow crunchy underfoot.

After locating the confluence, we decided to place a small cache nearby to commemorate the find. It is just to the south and very slight slightly west, about 50-60 metres away, in the branches of some bushes. This way, we avoid getting it ploughed under when the spring sowing happens.
