20-Sep-2008 -- This is the 38th of a series of 83 confluence visits during our voyage from Nigeria to Europe and back to Nigeria around the entire African continent. It all started on 28 January at 11N 5E.
Story continues from 51N 9E.
We are driving from Passau along the river Donau to Aschach towards Wels and getting there onto the highway leading to Salzburg. We take the highway turnoff Vorchdorf and take the road leading towards Pettenbach.
Somewhere along this road we turned off onto small country roads and followed the direction where the GPS was directing us. We got as close as 105 meters this way. Unfortunately there was a large field of maize. We turned around and got to the other side of the field of maize and parked our vehicle at the nearby country tavern.
We walked the remaining 270 meters through a meadow and found the confluence 25 meters inside the field of maize. It was raining and unpleasantly cold this day. After we returned to our vehicle we had quite a job to clean our shoes and change into some dry clothes again.
Continued at 47N 15E.
