#1: Confluence point

(visited by John Dag Hutchison)

22-Aug-2008 -- I came from just across the border between Sweden and Norway and headed for N63E10. The road standards and speed limits are lower in Norway so the going took more time than calculated. I followed the advice of the last visitor, went to Å and then up to the private roads towards Holsjøen. On my way and at the stop at the first toll gate I met Mr. Kjell Krokan who was going the same way. At the next gate he was still going the same way. At the end of the road it turned out that he and his wife were also going the same way. The cp was only just over one kilometer away, and they had a cottage about 700 m from the cp.

Mr. Krokan joined me and supported me when I balanced on the stepping stones across the small river about 50 m from the cp. I took the usual photos. By the way, the gate fees have gone up since the last visitor was there. It is now NOK 40.- at each gate.

Ps. I usually take a close up photo of the GPS first and then adjust the camera for the other photos. This time I had such good company that I forgot to reset the camera. The photos are therefore regrettably a bit out of focus.
