02-Sep-2001 -- Seven of us started to discover the confuence spot on a rainy sunday afternoon after we spent the whole morning in our tents because of the rain. We were able to get close enough to the confluence spot by car. We had to walk about 1.5 km (1 mile) from the point where we left the car through an endless, already harvested field of wheat. We were worried about the surrounding cornfields, it is not very pleasant to walk kilometres across them. But we favourably reached the spot. There was a gutter just at the spot. We were joking, that it must be the line on the plan. The only problem with it is it's color. The one on the plan is blue and this wasn't. In the pictures it is noticeable, that anywhere you saw there was nothing. Finally, as you can see in the photo we couldn't help doing a horse riding on the endless plain...
