01-Sep-2001 -- The day I had decided to visit this confluence it was raining.
Never the less I decided to give it a try. After consulting the Swedish map
"Blå Kartan" (Blue Map) I found that there were two truck-roads taking me
within 500 meters from the confluence. I decided to give the south way a try.
This was also the one that had the best way taking me close.
I had some luck taking this way. When I left the main road and headed for
the confluence on the truck road I found that the this road had been blocked
by a boom in the past. But it was open and looked like no one had been using
it for years. The road was drivable but not turnable. Anyhow I came within
325 meters from the confluence. I parked and started walking toward the
confluence. The terrain was typical for this area. Lots of moss-clad stones
with holes around. I really had to make sure that I put the feet at the
There was also mosquitos flying around and ticks creeping on my rain clothes.
The confluence is in the middle of nowhere some 20 m from a low hill as seen
on the pictures. I took pictures in the four main cardinal directions. I also
took some pictures of the GPS showing where I was, I thought... As it was
raining I did not dare to put the camera on a stone and use the self-timer
to take a picture of me.
On the way back both my GPS compass (a Vista) and my ordinary compass behaved
strange. This can be seen on the track-log #5 as a slight
detour on the way back.
Back home I learned a lesson. My digital camera happily takes a picture even
though it can not focus. All close up pictures of the GPS were un-sharp!
