28-May-2004 -- This was an easy one – a drive-in confluence, bagged “en passant”, so to speak.
Rounding off a business trip to Munich before jumping into the fray of the beginning weekend tourist traffic (Pentecost holidays in Bavaria had just begun) on my way home, I made a slight detour to the east of the Bavarian capital and soon reached the small village of Straußdorf between Grafing and Aßling in the administrative district of Ebersberg.
I reached the confluence quite easily by car, using a small unnamed tarmac road branching off the ST2080 a few hundred meters north of Aßling and leading towards a stone bridge across the Attel river.
The confluence point itself was situated not far from the bridge (with a nearby monument indicating the confluence) only 3 metres within a ploughed acre.
Confluence work of GPS reading and taking photos was quickly done. Getting home by running into several congestions one at a time on the southern German motorways gridlocked by trucks, caravans, and passenger cars stucking in between (including myself) was by far not so easy.
