Degree Confluence, Karabuk and Sinop

December 12-13, 2009

41N 33E

Another fully equipped confluence weekend just began in Ankara. We took the highway D750 up to Cerkes junction. From there, we turned right into Cerkes route. Once we reached Cerkes, we turned right onto the route D100 for only a kilometer. Then we turned left due north towards Ercek village near the DCP. That time on, some complex village roads seen on our map were indirectly reaching the village. Unfortunately, it turned out not to be that way. The farmland roads were rather confusing yet, some wern’t’t even plotted on the map. In the end, we ended up giving up on asking where we were and rather using our senses and knowledge of topography for determining the most logical route onto the DCP. We still don’t quite know how but after a prolonged driving session, having gone past a significant number of roads and junctions, we somehow managed to approach to the intersection as close as 120 meters. We were mentally exhausted though, so it was time for a good night sleep.
