  50°N 4°E (visit #12)  

#1: Overview

(visited by Karl Bryk and Michael Bryk)

24-Sep-2015 -- This is visit number 11 in a sequence of 15 visits made while on a road trip with my son Michael.

The previous is 50N 3E.

We had an uneventful drive from the last CP to 50N 4E, arriving close to the CP at 14:20. It was immediately obvious that we would not get as close to the CP as we would perhaps like, but the 40 or so metres distance were good enough for a successful visit.

We parked the car close-by, and walked to the point by the hedge closest to the CP and took the photos. On the way back to the car we passed some houses and asked who the field belonged to, hoping it might be the owner of the house but it turned out to be the farm at the top of the hill from where the CP was located.

We did think about stopping at the farm to ask if it would be ok to enter the field but time was not on our side - we still had a long way to go and more CPs to visit - so we left and headed for 50N 5E.
