27-Dec-2001 -- In the summer we heard about the confluence project and hopefully we looked around our hometown Hamburg. But every point in Germany was visited and so we planned a X-mas trip to Sweden.

In the meantime two of the points had been visited by other persons, so we had to change our plans before we started.

We visited 59°N 14°E, 60°N 14°E, 62°N 14°E and went nearly 2500 km by car. Temperatures were between 3 C and -29 C, and we had everything between snowstorm and sunshine.

This point was difficult to reach because we climbed by car higher and higher up a hill getting more and more snow. Nearly 2.4 km before our planned stop we stuck in the snow and so we had to make the rest walking through deep snow and at a temperature of -29 C.

This was very hard because the daylight was running out and we had to return to the car. By the way it took us afterwards a good hour more to shovel free the wheels, to attach the noskid chains and to turn around the car.
