(visited by Anders Ort Mortensen and Stefan Ort Mortensen)

21-Jul-2000 -- Being so lucky to win a GPS (Garmin Emap) at Microsoft TechEd in Amsterdam, I surfed the Net to find info about GPS. Here the Degree Confluence Project sounded as a good idea and Denmark was not represented yet. Finding that nearest point was around 35 km west of us, my son Stefan and I set of. The confluence is locate in a small forest close to Asserbo in North Zealand (The island with Copenhagen on it). We drove to within 600 meters from the confluence and had to walk through a summerhouse area to get to the forest. Here we did not have to walk very far before the GPS gave us a hit.
