#1: Overview

(visited by Rico Melchert, Bodil Eriksson and Linus Arvidsson)

13-Jun-2004 -- Our goal is to successfully place a GeoCache at the vicinity of each of Sweden's Confluences that are on land.

Start of the project: 2004/JUN/08. This is our fourth degree confluence.

After having visited N59E16 we turned our sight to the south. After a couple hours of driving (and some hours of sleep in the car), we were ready to enter the forest in search of the confluence.

The confluence is located a minimum of 600m from any road. Not a long stretch, but the terrain can be unkindly so make sure you have at least 30-45 minutes for the tracking there and back.

Enjoy the pictures.

Coordinator's Note: Visiting all the confluences in Sweden is a great goal, but I must quote from the the project FAQ: "We would like to strongly discourage the leaving of a permanent marker especially in wild areas"
