29-Aug-2021 -- On our way back from our summer holidays in Croatia, I took the chance to visit the confluence point 48° North 12° East.
From the Autobahn A8 I took the exit Bad Aibling, direction north. After about 20 km I missed the correct turn direction east. So I had to take a detour through Grafing and arrived later than expected at the confluence area. It was already getting dark when we arrived. So I parked the car quite near the CP.
I walked about 50 m direction CP and realized that it was located a few meters inside a maize field. Because of the densely planted plants, I avoided to step into the field. But already after a few steps from the way, direction field, it was very muddy and I immediately stood in a huge puddle. All the time it was drizzling. Surely the 'bad' weather was responsible for the bad GPS-reception. Furthermore the pictures were taken in the incorrect mode, so that their quality is very poor. Caused by this and by a certain hectic, caused by the darkness, I didn't get all the zeros on my display.
The confluence monument is located in the near of large trees. Due to this it was too dark there to take pictures of it - at least with my camera. So I fulfilled the visit of confluence point 48° North 12° East under bad conditions.
After some more hours of Autobahn we reached our home and the summer holidays were gone.
