31-Jan-2017 -- Inverted weather phenomena! We started our trip northbound to Sweden in wet snowy conditions in Hamburg and ended up in a green forest area for the first night in Sweden.

Next morning we met a Swedish man, probably the owner of the land, with his two black dogs. One was quite nice and curious, the other just barking and grouchy. Did you know that it is forbidden in southern Sweden to camp in the forest in general, even when there is no sign of privat property or other indication of restricted area? Well, this is what we were told.

After another two hours' ride we came as close as possible to this confluence, tied our hiking boots tight and started the approach. Deep forest and nice clearings alternated and luckily the confluence was situated in such a glade. Close to the point we even found a sign post. But most probably it has been pointing out something different in the past, now you cannot read anything on it anyway. Nice spot, easy to reach if not in deep snow. Happy confluence hunter.
