14-Jul-2018 -- This is a re-visit to this CP, see here for the previous visit

It wasn't supposed to be a re-visit but when I checked out my Sweden CP table - see photo - I misread 58N 14E (not yet visited) with 59N 14E. And since we happened to be staying in Ottersbäcken nearby I decided to go visit it, hoping to bag a new visit to a Swedish CP.

The journey was quite short, only about 10 km, so once I had set off I was there in no time. Since there was a no entry sign at the start of the track that lead to the CP, I parked the car and headed off on foot for about 800 metres, before heading the last 90 metres or so into the woods straight to the point.

The strange thing is I did not recognize the walk to the CP nor the CP itself!

I took the usual photos and returned to the car the same way and it was all over in less than half an hour.

An that was it for this holiday - a meagre tally. I guess I would have made the effort to visit 58N 14E had I realized I had messed up, but the CPs 61N and 62N were out of reach as they were nowhere near our route.

Next year maybe!
