DCP: Tajikistan

GPSWhy I didn't think to check in with DCP (Degree Confluence Project) sooner than the day prior to my departure to Tajikistan, I don't know. Too much else going on? As cool as the project is, I have yet to invest in a good GPS device of my own, but that doesn't have to keep me or anyone else into confluencing from dropping into the site from time to time.

Looks as if there are 13 confluences in all and only one has been completed in the country almost two years ago. Considering the country is 93% mountain I'm sure some of these can be just as hard to reach as the many located in the middle of the ocean. The authors of the one completed in Badakshon note their trouble breathing as the air got thinner. Otherwise nothing really fascinating sticks out about their excursion.
