RE: [borderpoint] Mini Border expedition 2008
Thank you for the links I had read your Velke Slemence before and was going to use that as the basis for my visit. I am planning the PLSKUA from the SK side - 15km is OK as my other hobby is hillwalking!!!
Looking at the maps of CZPLSK I think the CZ approach is the best for us. Really helpful map.
Will let you know how I get on. Been in contact with Artur and theres a possibility we might meet at the PLSKUA tp with him coming from the PL side. That would be great.

Subject: RE: [borderpoint] Mini Border expedition 2008Sounds great - a number of these are wet tripoints - I will leave it to others who have been to provide details of access.I think PLSKUA is a longish hike - maybe 15km - on the SK side although it might be more accessible from the PL side. CZPLSK is a beautiful place but has been developed since I was there so I would love to see new photos. I approached from CZ, probably equally approachable from PL but SK approach would be awkward or impossible I think (it would be through dense woods, possibly private land).Remember that Vel'ke Slemence is a foot crossing only and be sure to check the opening times.In case you are hunting for them here are my direct links for these placesCheersHugh

Not on the scale of more experienced & knowledgeable members of the group - I am in the process of combining a family holiday to Slovakia & Hungary with an attempt to bag the 5 slovakian tripoints and ATCZDE on the way back to the uk. Also going to visit vel'ke slemence & cross the border there into UA. Was thinking of a visit to Uzhhorod but not sure after reading of the border delays and rip offs going on there with a EU registered car.
Any advise on access/issues etc please let me know. As 2 are now on the external border of the EU is there anything I should be mindful of? Would be grateful if anyone could advise best way to access the HUSKUA one. Any on line maps details routes etc.
Will share photos. Planning to go between 22.07.08 and 14.08.08.
