07-Aug-2021 – On the weekend we decided to visit two CPs in one day. Both of them are located about 200 km south of Kyiv.
The first point was 49°N 31°E which is near Yerky town.
August is the period of ripening of corn, sunflowers, wheat etc. So we expected some difficulties to reach the CP located in the middle of field.
And that is happened as expected! When we arrived by car we found the field full of corn that was more than 2 m high.
On the first attempt (red arrow on the layout) we tried to go through corn along the line of latitude 49°N. Unfortunately that was almost impossible. Staying at the distance of some meters we could hardly see each other.
On the second attempt (green arrow on the layout) we came along the railway, then between the forest and field and finally about 30–40 meters straight through the corn.
After making all necessary pictures we continued our way to 49°N 30°E .
