#1: The view to the north from the confluence point.

(visited by Edwin Wisse, Adriaan Bakker and Iris Sekewael)

10-Oct-2001 -- We have visited this confluence on October the 19th. After spending a week close to the 46°N, 4°E confluence we going to drive back to the Netherlands. We saw on the website that would be passing very close to an unvisited confluence. Of course a visit was planned. We drove north until Nevers and started looking for the waypoint using a Garmin 12 and the Michelin map.

We parked the car on a narrow country road and continued on foot for the last 800 meters. We followed a narrow lane, crossed a field into the woods and walked through the woods for 400 meters. We passed a "for sale" sign (wouldn't it be great to actually own your very own confluence?). After crossing a ditch we criss-crossed under the trees to find the confluence. GPS coverage was ok but not good due to the trees.

We found the actual spot. Took the necessary pictures, and admired the landscape. We then walked back to the car and continued the drive home, with the satisfaction that we could add another visit report to this great site.
