#1: N60 E10 panorama

(visited by Odd-Wiking Rahlff, Erik Gösta Nilsson, Jo Herstad and Liv Marie Justad)

27-May-2000 -- A drizzling day in May, this small group of mobile informatics researchers and their families traveled the 40 km from Oslo to the small city of Vikersund near the Tyrifjord. A couple of kilometers north on E32 we found a small dirt road to the left and having struggled along in the bush 300 meters (Jo brought a foldable bike, and one of us had a wheelchair even!) the confluence N60E10 was peacefully lying there in a glade, barely 10 meters within an agricultural field to the north.

We joyfully documented the place producing the two panorama shots and at May 27th 2000 at 11:11am we hid a tiny GPS stash in a tree at N60 00' 00'.0'' E10 00' 01.0''.
