(visited by Florian Schindler)

05-Jun-2017 -- How quickly the situation can change: yesterday at miserable rainy weather I visited 60°N 12°E and aborted an attempt of 61°N 12°E. Today after a hearty breakfast in a hotel, the sun was shining and blue skies!

I started with my car in Elverum, drove along the Trysil river valley through beautiful Norwegian landscape, spruce forests, rivers, and snow-capped mountains. I reached the hamlet Drevsjø, turned west on road no. 26 and turned north towards Sorken/Elgå. I continued this tarmac road, turned north on the unpaved road with a sign pointing to Tolgevollen at 61°58.84'N 11°59.05'E. Followed this road until a clearing with a few houses appeared and turned east on a forest road. This road was not in such a decent condition as the previous road and I soon found a good spot to park my car at a distance of 680 metres to the Point.

Walking on this forest road was easy and while walking on this road I reached the 100 metres limit. Left the road, walked cross country through blueberry bushes and found the Confluence Point easily. It was a pleasure to zero out my GPS receivers at this sunny, dry, and beautiful spot.

Finally I left the Point, walked back to my car, drove to the main tarmac road, and started the tourist part with a visit of Elgå. In the afternoon I drove along secondary roads to my hotel in Elverum, still enjoying the beautiful landscape.

On my long way back to my current home in southern Sweden I recalled the visits of the Confluence Points along 12°E during the past days: three easy, one medium and one failed visit of 61°N 12°E, which is still on my to-do list. The Confluence Points on the 12th longitude north of 62°N seem to be much more difficult. Let's see what time will bring...
