#1: The spot

(visited by Tuomo Seppanen)

05-Jun-2002 -- The confluence point is located in Puolanka, Finland. A small dirt-road ends quite near the point, just 400 meters (straight???) walk through forest with a map, compass and GPS, which onw should learn to use properly.

After 20 mins of wandering from west to east, north to south, we finally reached the point; 65.00.00.001 and 28.00.00.002.. so not that far from the exact Confluence point.

We were two conquerers, Jussi Rapatti and Tuomo Seppänen finding it..64' and 28' of Puolanka. We made a little wooden landmark on the point so the next visitor can easily notice it. Now we're heading for the next one.....lets see..
