Why we still do the maps in France? The answer is simple. The French are the real masters of the mapping gastronomy. They can only compete with the Spaniards. In these countries has consumerism a  good tradition and clubs are able to provide excellent catering, unlike of cool Germans, Austrians or Swiss. Due this perfect service it is possible fully concentrate to the mapping and the efficiency is significantly increased. The mapmakers powered by meat, wine and chips working like a agog.
Together with Radims we finished Cret de Peillouté from spring-a hill situated in The Natural Park Pilat in 1200m with beautiful old beech forest with a lot of stones, on the top and down in the valley also with undergrowth rumpus and wires. Méďa and Krtek made the map Pont Sauvignet near Le Bessat.

After several days of permanent watching the weather forecast during finishing of map Croix du Treve-Bois Ternay near St. Genest-Malifaux we decided don't be so soft, stay and start with the other project on Peilloute hill. We moved higher on Bessat, where we found perfect accommodation in Chalet des Alpes. Peilloute is very nice deciduous forest with many stones, in upper parts half opened with rocks in dwarf pines and bushes. Weather was against forecast good and we spent two days working in full speed. The disaster came in the form of 30 cm of snow during the night of 3rd to 4th May. Fog, snow, wind and very cold temperatures around 0 with no hope that snow could melt during next few days catapulted us in to the car on the way home.
