(visited by Leif Holmgren)

18-Nov-2006 -- This confluence was my third this day, I made one incomplete to 59° 15°E and one successful to 59°N 16°E. This visit was my last planned and also the hardest to reach. When I planned my visits it looked like it was possible to drive very close to the spot but that was not the case since the road was blocked by a road bar some 2.5km from the confluence. But does confluence hunters give up? No!

So I parked my car and walked the road going towards the spot. Along this road I passed a very nicely located house of the kind that I would love to have. Some 100m after the house the road stopped being a road and turned into a mud ditch. Considering that I was wearing tennis shoes I walked towards the confluence through the dense forest instead. The confluence is very close to were a small water stream crosses the muddy tractor road. I guess that this spot is better to visit in the summer, at least if you are wearing tennis shoes.
