#1: Confluence point

(visited by John Dag Hutchison)

21-Aug-2008 -- The inn keeper at Storuman looked at my road map and told me to drive about 10 km southwards on E45, then cross a bridge over a small river and turn to the right. His advice was heeded, but when I entered the forest roads further on the mist came along and I didn't see more than 50 m at times.

From E45 I drove about 11 km, crossed the railway line, then another 3 km to a smaller forest road which ended a further 3 km on. From there it was less than 100 m to the cp. The forest was like a wall with dense thicket and grass. The ground was extremely soggy and mountain boots got filled with marshy water immediately.

The cp turned out to be in the little river about 18 m away.
