#1: Overview

(visited by Karl Bryk and Heidi Peschl)

18-Jul-2013 -- This is visit 3 in a series of 5 CP visits made while on holiday in Sweden in July 2013. The previous visit was 57N 15E. The next visit was 59N 13E.

After our attempt to visit Astrid Lindgrens world in Vimmerby we headed for Hjälleskate, south of Säffle, at the North of Vänern lake. This would be 350 km drive and to break up the journey I decided to tackle 58N 15E.

Again following the car sat nav, driving down unpaved roads, we ended up at a car park near what looked like a group of buildings belonging to a hostel of some sort. The CP was about 400 metres away. This time only Heidi decided to come along.

Progress was heavy going, lots of thick bush, fallen trees, and low branches. It took about 20 minutes to reach the CP which contrary to the surrounding terrain was in an open area and easy to reach. Again the usual photos and the same difficult walk back to the car.

A long but uneventful drive followed, arriving at Hjälleskate after 10 in the evening. We had the first rain of the holiday just on arriving - but it only lasted 5 minutes. We could not find the summer house we were going to stay in until Michael came to the main road, waited to meet us, and then showed us the way to his summer house. More of him in the next report.
